If a worker previously has a disability or condition that becomes worse or is directly caused by an unexpected act, the illness may be considered an accidental injury.

The South Carolina Court of Appeals described the term “accident” as an unforeseen event that is not expected by the injured worker. The injury may be caused by accidental causes or from “oversight and negligence, carelessness, fatigue, or miscalculation of the effects of voluntary action.”
