A Preexisting Injury Does Not Bar Recovery

If you have been injured on the job, you may be hesitating to make a workers’ compensation claim due to the presence of a preexisting injury or condition. Your preexisting condition may not be a roadblock to getting the benefits you need. An experienced workers’ compensation lawyer can help you understand your rights.

At The Law Offices of John M. McCabe, P.A., we have extensive experience representing injured workers in the Raleigh area. Since 1994, we have been treating clients like family, fighting to make sure they are treated with the respect they deserve as they navigate the workers’ compensation process.

Understanding Preexisting Injuries And Conditions

Despite what you may have been told by your employer or its insurance company, having a preexisting condition does not bar you from seeking workers’ compensation benefits for a work-related injury.

For example, if you have a preexisting shoulder injury that was made worse by an accident at work, the aggravated injury can be compensable under workers’ compensation. In these cases, it is crucial to have your injuries and medical treatment clearly documented so we can build a compelling case on your behalf. Also, as with any other case, it is important to notify your employer about the injury you have aggravated at work.
