Pre-Existing Conditions and Workers' Compensation
Experienced Attorneys Helping You Secure the Compensation You Deserve
In the state of North Carolina, a pre-existing condition will not prevent an injured worker from collecting workers' compensation benefits. As an injured worker, you can collect full benefits when an accident hastens or aggravates a condition you had prior to the accident. This remains true even if the work-related accident would not have caused injury to someone without your pre-existing condition.
For more than 20 years the Mecklenburg County workers' compensation lawyers at Ken Wayne & Associates have focused their practice solely on helping those injured on the job. They recognize the complexities associated with workers' compensation claims and pre-existing conditions, and work to help our clients recover the maximum benefits they are entitled to.

Workers' Compensation Benefits and Pre-Existing Conditions
Unfortunately, many workers' compensation claims that involve a pre-existing condition are initially denied. Insurance companies seek to find reasons why these claims are not valid, sometimes going as far as to accuse injured workers of trying to commit fraud. If your pre-existing condition was agitated by a work-related accident, you may have a long and bumpy road ahead of you. This is where we come in.
The workers' compensation lawyers at Ken Wayne & Associates have successfully handled pre-existing condition claims, involving:
- Neck conditions
- Low back conditions
- Knee conditions
- Shoulder conditions
It is our job, as your legal representatives, to investigate the circumstances surrounding your injury and the impact on your pre-existing condition. We work to prove your condition was accelerated or irritated by the accident or conditions in your workplace, therefore making you eligible for full workers' compensation benefits. We stand strong against adversaries, such as your employer and their insurance company, fighting for your rights so you can focus on your recovery.
