Will my Workers Compensation Claim be Denied because of a Pre-Existing Condition?
One of the most frequent questions I get from potential clients is about injuries or symptoms before their work injury. Legally, preexisting symptoms or injuries alone cannot deny a workers comp claim. However, insurance companies and adjusters often rely on this concept to deny claims. For example, if you had lower back pain before injuring your lower back at work, you may still have a valid claim. It’s important to note that the analysis can be complex and depend on medical evidence.
For that reason, it is recommended that injured workers with prior symptoms or injuries retain an experienced workers compensation attorney to discuss the details. T.
