Workers’ Compensation – Disability – Futility – Back Injury – Medical Evidence (access required)

Adams v. Parts Unlimited Where plaintiff proved disability by “the production of evidence that he is capable of some work but that it would be futile because of preexisting conditions, i.e., age, inexperience, lack of education, to seek other employment,” Russell v. Lowes Product Distribution, 108 N.C. App. 762, 425 S.E.2d 454 (1993), plaintiff was not required to also produce medical evidence that he physically or mentally incapable of work in any employment. We affirm the Industrial Commission’s award of ongoing temporary total disability and medical benefits.
