Re: Charlotte Observer Criticizes Our North Carolina "Injury by Accident" Rule
I guess I misinterpreted what was posted and the caselaw cited in the above article.
The point I was making is to limit the qualification for benefits based on a perverted definition of an accident is a ruse.
The title of the article you cited is "Your work injury won’t be covered if it doesn’t meet NC’s definition of an ‘accident' "
Even you said "NC's big "trap for the unwary"- our "injury by accident" rule.
Based on these and other statements, I assumed this bogus "Injury by Accident" Rule outweighed whether the employee was acting "in the course of employment" or any other argument.
I now feel better and will sleep well.
Thanks for the clarification and link - very interesting!!
