North Carolina's Workers' Compensation Law

A worker can have a pre-existing injury that was not work-related, or they can have a pre-existing work-related injury where the new work-related injury is aggravating the pre-existing injury. The firm’s Concord workers’ compensation lawyer can help you prepare and file an effective claim based on your pre-existing condition, even if the prior condition was not work-related.

Under North Carolina workers' compensation law, when an injury occurs due to a workers' idiopathic (cause unknown) condition, it is not compensable. On the other hand, if hazards related to employment contributed in some definite, discernable way as to cause the accident, the employer may be liable.

If a compensable injury accelerates or aggravates a preexisting disease or injury and contributes to injury or death, it is compensable even if it would not have caused disability or death to a normal person.

Speak With a Qualified Professional About Your Case

Claims involving pre-existing injuries are something you should not handle by yourself, because doing so could cause you to lose some valuable benefits and rights. Since these cases are more complex than standard claims, the sooner you hire a Concord workers’ compensation attorney, the more benefits you are likely to receive, and the greater your chances of avoiding a dispute with your employer or their insurance carrier.
