Motor Vehicle Accidents and Pre-existing Injuries.

What happens when you are involved in a car accident and it affects an injury you had prior to the accident?

When a person is involved in a car accident it can cause the victim to suffer new injuries, but sometimes the accident can make a pre-existing injury worse. In other words, it "aggravates the pre-existing injury". This is a very common situation. Even though there was a prior injury, the victim is still entitled to benefits for the increase of pain and suffering, and expenses related to the aggravation of that injury.

People may think that they are not entitled to benefits unless they sustain new injuries, however, you are entitled compensation for the aggravation of an old injury as well. If you have been involved in a car accident and have sustained new injuries, or if it made an old injury worse, call Serafini, Michalowski, Derkacz & Associates today to learn your rights and let us help you.
