Personal Injury Lawyers Fight Back Against Denied Insurance Claims
A pre-existing condition is considered a medical condition that an individual had before experiencing a work-related accident or personal injury accident. Pre-existing conditions needed to be taken into account when determining how much compensation you are entitled to receive through a personal injury or workers’ compensation claim. To qualify for benefits with a pre-existing condition, we must prove your condition has been aggravated from a work-related accident or from a personal injury accident.
This is a highly complicated area of the law. Insurance companies are known to try and minimize or deny legitimate claims allegedly a condition was pre-existing. This is a roadblock our legal team is fully prepared to overcome. We have extensive experience advocating for injured workers and accident victims with pre-existing medical conditions, including:
- Joint pain
- Herniated disk or spine pain
- Back and neck injuries
- Repetitive stress injuries
- Shoulder, wrist and arm injuries
- Knee and leg injuries
The law in Louisiana is on accident victims’ and injured workers’ side. If your pre-existing medical condition has become worse from someone else’s negligent actions or from a work-related accident, you are entitled to compensation. At Lee Hoffoss Injury Lawyers, our personal injury attorneys prepare all of our claims for a favorable trial verdict. We will work with your doctor to prove that your medical condition has become worse since the accident.
Every case is fact specific. If a pre-existing condition is made worse because of someone else’s fault, then that person must pay for the damages that you are suffering. If you had back pain before an accident but could work and now you are unable to hold a job, you are entitled to 100 percent of your lost wages. If you did not need a surgery before a car accident, but now you do, the at-fault party must pay 100 percent of the surgery cost. When you select our law firm, you can feel confident knowing that we have the skills and legal resources to help you obtain a full financial recovery.
