NC Court of Appeals Upholds Workers' Compensation for Hardison & Cochran Client

The North Carolina Court of Appeals recently upheld a decision to award workers’ compensation benefits to former Lumberton principal James Hunt. The former Marine, who is represented by Hardison & Cochran Managing Partner and NC Workers’ Compensation Board Certified Specialist Ben Cochran, was injured when he was hit with a shotgun blast in April of 2009.

In December of 2010, the North Carolina Industrial Commission ruled that Mr. Hunt’s claim was compensable, but the school district appealed the case to the appellate court.
