Reforms to Workers’ Compensation Laws Limit Benefits



In the past several years, many states, including North Carolina, have passed new laws changing and cutting back benefits employees can received under the workers’ compensation laws.   Since 2003, new laws have been passed in 33 states that reduce benefits or make it more difficult for those with certain injuries to qualify for benefits.   Cuts have been so deep in some states that judges and even defense attorneys have found them inhumane.   In North Carolina, significant laws went into effect in 2011 that made significant changes to North Carolina workers’ compensation laws; most of which were bad for injured workers.  The first major change was to place an arbitrary time limit on the number of weeks an injured worker can be paid for being out of work for total disability.  There are some minor exceptions to the law, but the exceptions are fairly restrictive and going forward it is unclear how the laws will be applied.  There are also major changes which affect the control of medical treatment, medical opinions and communication with physicians that favor the insurance companies.
