Question:

Can pre-existing conditions affect my injury claim?

Answer:

Some people that come to our office are concerned that they had preexisting conditions before the accident, and they’re concerned that they may not be entitled to recover. Pre-existing Conditions Although preexisting conditions may cause a hurdle, they will not prevent you from getting a full recovery. Your preexisting condition may be aggravated or exacerbated by the accident and you are entitled to recover for that. Also, if you’ve had a preexisting condition that’s been dormant for several years, the insurance company may not even be able to argue that and may not be able to get it into evidence. The short answer is that, if you have a preexisting condition, it will not be a bar to recovery.
