A variety of factors can complicate personal injury claims, including pre-existing conditions. This is why it would be in your best interest to secure help from anAtlantapersonal injury attorney.
When you file a personal injury claim and seek compensation for your medical expenses and other damages, the insurance company is going to try to find a way to reduce the client’s liability. They do this with the objective of trying to put you at fault for the accident and diminish your injuries.
One of the ways this may be done is if they learn that you have a pre-existing condition. They may say that your current injuries have nothing to do with the accident.
Here are some of the most common types of pre-existing conditions that can complicate a personal injury claim:
- degenerative arthritis;
- herniated disc;
- joint damage; and
- injuries to the back, neck or head.
It’s important to disclose previous injuries that you have sustained. Your pre-existing conditions could be factored into your claim, so you will want to have legal representation working on your behalf.
