Concern Over "Suing" Your Employer

Joey Hodgin has talked to a lot of injured workers.  One concern that often arises, is an injured worker’s concern that they are “suing” their employer.  For whatever reason, their employer, friend, co-worker, or family member has told the injured worker that he/she shouldn’t sue the company.  The reality is that the injured worker isn’t suing anybody.  In the state of NC, lawsuits are not involved in WC.  Any injury related issues are handled in front of the NC Industrial Commission in an administrative forum.  Additionally, there is a very specific provision in NC law that disallows lawsuits, save a very few exceptions, when an individual is hurt on the job.
