Do I Have A Claim If My Medical Condition Was Pre-Existing?

If your work aggravates or worsens a pre-existing medical condition, you may be entitled to further workers’ compensation benefits. Often the workers’ compensation insurance carrier denies benefits when the worker has a pre-existing medical condition. However, many of these “denied” claims are successfully challenged in the Workers’ Compensation Court when the medical evidence proves that the accident at work either worsened or aggravated the pre-existing condition making additional medical treatment now necessary.
