Re: Employer wont let husband go to doctor

Your husband needs to file a Form 18 with the NC Industrial Commission ASAP. Link to the NCIC through our website at ncworkcomp.com. Also get a copy of, and read, the NCIC Bulletin

He should go to the doctor immediately to get checked out medically, as well as start a "paper trail" on the whens and hows of the injury. He can figure out if workers' compensation needs to pay the bill later.
