Preexisting Conditions

If you were injured years ago, and your current job only made that old injury worse, you may think you don't have a workers' compensation case. And you may be wrong. In many cases, North Carolina law allows people with preexisting conditions to collect workers' compensation benefits. Of course, the insurance company would prefer you to ignore this right, but The Insurance Company Is NOT On Your Side.

At the law office of R. Steve Bowden & Associates P.C., we are on your side. We have decades of experience helping injured individuals obtain the benefits they need. Our responsibility is to ensure that you are protected and fairly compensated, even if you had a preexisting injury or condition. That's our job, and we take it seriously.

Examples Of Injuries Made Worse At Work

Here are a few examples of scenarios in which you may be eligible for workers' compensation benefits:

  • You injure your back playing football in college and require surgery. However, after the surgery, you are able to return to life as normal. Five years later, you are lifting heavy boxes at work when your back is re-injured by the repetitive motion.
  • You injure your knee in a motorcycle accident. A few years later, you fall off a ladder at work and land on that knee, creating even more severe damage.
  • You have arthritis in your foot that is manageable with proper care. However, one day at work, you drop a heavy tool on that foot. This makes the arthritis flare up so strongly that you cannot return to work.
