Question:

Can pre-existing injuries affect my boating accident claim?

Answer:

I was talking with an individual just last week who was injured in a boating accident. They had preexisting conditions to their back and were concerned that having that condition would foreclose their ability to make a claim for the aggravation of that condition. Pre-Existing Injuries Affecting a Boating Accident ClaimFlorida law specifically allows claims to be made for aggravation of preexisting conditions. Rather than a negative, the existence of those preexisting conditions often are an asset to the case because they explain why and how the person sustained the extent of injury that they did. Preexisting conditions often predispose individuals to significantly bigger injuries than someone who did not have a preexisting condition to begin with.
