Pre-Existing Condition

If you have a pre-existing injury that has been either aggravated or worsened by your workplace environment or your job causing strain, stress, or pain it may have an impact on your workers’ compensation claim. However, if your pre-existing condition (for example, arthritis or a broken bone from sports accident) and your job aggravates or worsens that injury from repetitively lifting heavy objects or typing you will most likely receive your benefits for the worsening of the condition, not for the condition itself. It’s important to go to a doctor that understands workers’ compensations claims and treats injured workers because they are familiar with the process and the terminology. Call Poirier Law for your free consultation to make sure you’re getting the benefits you’re entitled to for your pre-existing injury.
