The grave consequences of asbestos exposure

As a North Carolina worker, you may inhale microscopic asbestos fibers on a daily basis without even realizing it. Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral found in numerous industrial and consumer products. Its superior insulating properties and its resistance to fire and flame make it a favorite component of construction materials, but it also is in brake pads and other automotive and consumer products.

What to do when your employer denies your workers' comp claim

Many employers will want to get out of paying an employee's medical bills in a workers' comp case. This matter becomes even more complicated in North Carolina where lawmakers recently shifted the burden of proof to fall more on the employee's side than the employer's. 

I got a work-related injury but was not at work – now what?

You learned all about workers’ compensation insurance when your co-worker tripped on a computer cord in your office and sprained her knee. Since this accident happened when she was at work, she received workers’ compensation to treat her injury. However, sometimes you perform work duties off the clock or away from the office. If you got into an accident in these circumstances, would North Carolina workers’ compensation cover you?

Can a verbally abusive co-worker ruin your health?

We all have encountered that one person who is just unbearable to work with. Whether they are rude, gossipy or mean, abusive co-workers can make you dread coming in to work. There is no argument that being in a toxic work environment can make North Carolina employees stressed and anxious. Working in these conditions may affect your health emotionally and physically.

Does your job increase your risk of cancer?

Nowadays, virtually every job in America poses at least some degree of risk, but the precise risks and dangers you face at work will vary considerably based on your industry, role and so on. While you may not work in a field that places you at considerable risk for, say, a car accident or a ladder fall, a job that exposes you to certain cancer-causing substances or behaviors can be just as deadly.

What are America’s most dangerous jobs?

Virtually every type of profession carries with it at least some degree of risk, but in some fields, those risks are far more prevalent than in others. If you work in particular industries, such as, say, trucking or construction, you may have a better idea about the types of on-the-job dangers you face than you might if you spend most of your time in an office setting.
