Pre-Existing Conditions And Workplace Injuries Lawyer In South Carolina

The aggravation of a pre-existing condition by an on-the-job injury or workplace accident is fully compensable under the South Carolina Workers' Compensation Act when sufficiently established by medical evidence. The injured worker is entitled to medical care, temporary total or partial benefits, and permanent partial or total benefits. Whether the injured employee has established the aggravation and any resulting permanency are questions of fact that may often be contested by an insurance company.

At Alan M. Tanenbaum, P.A., we can seek to help you obtain all the Workers' Compensation Benefits to which you have a right under South Carolina's workers' compensation system, including medical benefits, temporary total or partial benefits, and permanent partial or total benefits for the aggravation of a pre-existing condition.

Contact us today online or by telephone at 843-722-2588 or toll free at 800-849-8276 to arrange a consultation with a knowledgeable Charleston workers' compensation lawyer.

Pre-Existing Condition Aggravated By Workplace Injury

If a pre-existing condition is aggravated by your workplace injury, your right to claim workers' compensation must be established by expert medical evidence to be compensable under the South Carolina Workers' Compensation Act. An injured worker who can successfully establish the claim is entitled to full medical benefits, temporary total or partial benefits, and permanent partial or total benefits. Compensability and permanency is always a question of fact, and is often contested by the insurance company. Expert medical evidence is normally needed to resolve the issue of how much the injured worker recovers. Often, medical opinions can vary. The rules governing pre-existing conditions, and the ways they apply to a given situation, can become complicated by the facts of each case.

If you or someone close to you with a pre-existing condition has suffered an on-the-job injury in South Carolina, we are here to help you explore your legal options.

The South Carolina workers' compensation system is a no-fault system. This means that even when a worker is at fault in bringing about the work-related injury or on-the-job accident, the worker injured on the job still qualifies for workers' compensation benefits.
