Chaisson v. Red Simpson, (08-704)

Workers’ Compensation Rule 502(3)(b); pro se plaintiff’s submission of compromise settlement agreement directly to Industrial Commission did not render agreement unenforceable when it otherwise complied with N.C.G.S. § 97-17(a).  Employer tried to back out of a settlement reached with the employee.  The settlement was based on the need of a future knee replacement, however the defendants argued that after reaching the agreement, it was clear that the employee did not need a knee replacement.  The Industrial Commission enforced the agreement against the employer finding that an enforceable agreement had been reached and was fair and just.  The North Carolina Court of Appeals upheld the Industrial Commission’s decision.  Please click here for more information.
