Having A Preexisting Condition Doesn’t Eliminate Your Rights
Having a preexisting condition can complicate a workers’ compensation claim. Having an attorney who understands the law is crucial. Law Office of Jack L. Stillman, P.A.., has helped clients throughout New Jersey navigate the complicated legal system. We can help you build the strongest possible case in order to get what you deserve.
How It Can Influence Your Case
While your employer is required to pay for medical expenses, the presence of a preexisting condition can make things much more difficult. An injury that predates your workplace accident can have an impact on how much compensation you receive. The company you work for is only legally responsible for the worsening of a physical condition, not the creation of it.
Your employer may try to gather evidence to show that any permanent damage is a result of your previous illness. For some clients, you may only receive disability benefits for the increase in your permanent impairment. It’s important to know that a company may also argue that your age may have had an influence. Regardless, our firm is here to be your strongest advocate. We are here to defend your rights every step of the way.
