Can pre-existing conditions affect my injury claim?
A lot of prospective clients here at Rush & Gransee say, “I suffered this personal injury, but I already had an injury to begin with.” The law calls this preexisting injury. I call it the realities of life. None of us are as perfect as the day we came into the world. Every day, there’s a little more wear and tear on our bodies.
If somebody blows through a stoplight, crashes into your car and wrecks your back, they’re responsible for that. They don’t get to say, “Yeah, your back probably hurt a little bit before that.” It probably didn’t hurt so bad that you had to go to a doctor. It didn’t hurt so bad that you might need surgery now. They don’t get away with that just because they think you were already hurting a little bit. If you think, “I’ve got this preexisting injury; I don’t have a case.” Understand that nobody has the right to hurt you ten times worse than you already are and not pay for that.. If you’ve suffered a personal injury, call an experienced lawyer. We’ll help you.
