Aggravation of Preexisting Injuries

In any personal injury case, there are often varying circumstances that affect the types and severity of injuries suffered. Many people have preexisting conditions or injuries that are aggravated by an accident. For example, a driver who previously suffered a back injury may aggravate this injury in a car or truck accident.

Our firm pursues all sources of recovery for our clients. We recognize that the world is not a vacuum and many people who suffer injuries in car accidents have existing physical injuries and ailments. We collaborate with physicians and have a successful track record of collecting significant damages for clients who suffer the return or worsening of pre-existing injuries after an accident.

Recover Compensation After An Auto Crash

If you have suffered harmed due to another driver's negligence, you have the right to seek compensation for your physical injuries and financial losses. Often, these losses amount to more than simply medical bills and lost wages - permanent disability, loss of companionship and emotional distress can all play a role as well.
