Question:

Can pre-existing injuries affect my car accident claim?

Answer:

Pre-Existing Injuries Affecting a Car Accident ClaimLast week, a client came into the office who had been in a recent motor vehicle collision and was telling me about the various parts of the body that he injured in the accident. One of those parts of the body that he injured in the accident was his back, and he was concerned that he would not be able to make a claim for his back injury because he had had issues with his back in the past.
Insurance companies use preexisting conditions as a defense in all cases, no matter how healthy a person may have been before that motor vehicle collision. In truth, a preexisting condition often explains how and why a person sustained the extent of injury that they did in an accident. We handle cases involving preexisting conditions all the time, and we have had great success in representing clients and making sure that they get the recovery that is fair for their past medical expenses, and their future medical expenses they will incur as a result of aggravating preexisting conditions in motor vehicle collisions.
