ROBIN TERRY (Raleigh) succeeded in defending a claim at the North Carolina Industrial Commission involving a claimant’s allegations that she had developed Post Traumatic Stress Disorder as a result of being assaulted by a co-worker on the employer’s premises.  MS. TERRY proved that although some employer representatives knew about the alleged assault,  that Plaintiff had not properly notified the employer of the injury in a timely fashion and that she was therefore barred from benefits.  The Commission also found that the incident did not arise from Plaintiff’s employment and that her diagnosis of PTSD was not related to any incident at work.

The outcome of a particular case cannot be predicated upon a lawyer's or law firm's past results.
