I have a pre-existing condition, how will it affect my personal injury claim?
Pre-existing condition may allow the injured party to recover if mental or physical condition got worse. The negligent party must take the injured party where they find him/her–the condition at the time of the accident. Thus, it is imperative that previous injuries and related medical records on the same body part or near the area must be disclosed so that the credibility and overall value of the present claim will not be adversely affected. There will be a comparison to be made on the old injury as against the present one to verify how the accident worsened the condition of the injured party.
