Pennsylvania law provides for compensation for the aggravation of a pre-existing condition in the context of a bodily injury claim emanating from an auto accident or an injury suffered while in the course and scope of employment. Thus, if you are involved in a motor vehicle accident, caused by another, and the trauma from the accident aggravates an underlying condition you have, you are entitled to be compensated for this injury. Similarly, if your work duties or a traumatic event on the job aggravate a pre-existing condition you have, the medical treatment and disability that flow from your symptoms are compensable. Regardless of what our law allows, however, insurance companies routinely deny or de-value injury claims that consist of these “aggravations” for a number of reasons. Therefore, as the victim of an auto accident or work injury, it is extremely important to have legal guidance as soon as possible after suffering such an injury. Insurance companies have vast resources and move quickly to minimize the significance of your claim, so having a top injury and accident lawyer by your side can be essential to prevailing on your claim and getting all of the financial compensation that you deserve.
