Mealey's Toxic Tort/Environmental - North Carolina Court Rejects Challenge To Last Injurious Exposure Holding

RALEIGH, N.C. - The state's workers' compensation commission properly determined the employer with which a man's last injurious exposure occurred, and neither the employee nor the commission had to specifically negate the possibility of subsequent exposures, a North Carolina court held May 1 (Carra Jane Penegar, et al. v. United Parcel Service, et al., No. COA17-404, N.C. App., 2018 N.C. App. LEXIS 435).
