Accidents Can Affect Pre-Existing Conditions

Any traumatic accident can exacerbate certain pre-existing medical conditions. Car accidents, trucking accidents, motorcycle accidents, pedestrian accidents, bike accidents, slip-and-fall/trip-and-fall accidents and workplace accidents have the potential to aggravate existing injuries.

Some pre-existing conditions that are commonly aggravated by accidents include:

  • Soft-tissue injuries
  • Muscle strain
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Herniated, ruptured or bulging discs
  • Arthritis
  • Joint pain
  • Back and neck pain
  • Concussions and mild brain injuries

In some cases, the worsening of medical conditions results in increased pain, discomfort, swelling, numbness, stiffness or a reduced range of motion. People who have problems with spinal discs or a previous concussion or brain injury may suffer very serious consequences after an accident.

We will work to demonstrate that the aggravation of your condition affects your ability to perform your job, household duties and daily activities. We will argue for compensation to cover medical expenses and lost income, when applicable.
