Can I sue my employer or co-worker for causing my injury?
In North Carolina, under the right circumstances, if you were injured on the job due to a co-worker who was extremely reckless, you could potentially sue that co-worker and go before a jury. The question: is that a case where a co-worker could actually pay a verdict from a jury if the verdict was high enough that it would compensate you for what you’ve been through and what you’re going through? Yes, you could sue the co-worker, but you have to think about what kind of ability a co-worker would have to pay the judgment.
It has to be a situation in Richmond County, NC where the co-worker is truly reckless. The legal phrase is willful, wanton, and reckless. That’s lawyer talk for someone who’s simply very reckless to the point that they surely knew better and they did it anyway. Yes, you can sue them, but you have to think beyond just the lawsuit and make sure that it’s actually worth it in economic terms to go forward with that type of lawsuit.
