North Carolina Law for Aggravation Injury and Workers' Compensation

A worker can have a pre-existing injury that was not work-related, or they can have a pre-existing work-related injury that has aggravated the new work-related 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, meaning the injured person cannot receive compensation for that injury. On the other hand, if hazards related to that individual's job contributed to causing the injury in a definite, discernable way, the employer may be liable.

If a compensable injury accelerates or aggravates a pre-existing disease or injury and contributes to further injury or death, the injured person may pursue compensation even if his or her pre-existing condition would not have caused disability or death to other individuals under ordinary circumstances.

Speak With a Qualified Professional About Your Case

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