did Island Taxi have workers compnesation insurance & did they file a claim for imjuries and lost wages on behalf of the injured driver?
2 simple questions which can be answered Yes or No.
Now in Raleigh, the Governor has enpanneled a group which includes The AG & Comissioner of Insurance to study how cases such as this can be avoided. One of the few steps she's taken which I commend.
It's estimated there are over 30,000 North Carolina businesses which should have workers compensation insurance and do not. They try to skirt the system by claiming everyone who works for them is an "independant contractor".
Not only does this delay, if not avoid workers compensation benefits for the injured; it prevents the collection of FICA, state withholding, medicare, social security and so forth.
What do you say WWAY? Time for a follow up phone call to Island Taxi?
