If you have been injured in a car wreck on the
public roads and interstate highways in and
around Charlotte or have suffered a slip and fall
or some other injury caused by the wrongful act
of another, you are entitled to seek compensation
for your injuries. However, sometimes victims of
the negligence of others have a preexisting
condition. When this is the case, they may think

    preexisting injury or condition.

care (2) a breach of that duty (3) proximate
causation and (4) damage or injury. A person with

these elements as well as an aggravation of his
or her preexisting injury.

exacerbated by the accident, medical records and
