Re: Workman's Comp

The "going and coming" rule will typically operate to disqualify the employee in your set of facts; however, there are limited exceptions to the rule. You should consult an experienced workers' compensation attorney to discuss in detail. If you decide to file a claim, it needs to be filed within 2 years of the date of injury. Go to NC Industrial Commission website to download forms and get further information. A link to their site can be found at Good luck!
