Pre-existing Conditions and Your Workers’ Compensation Claim
When you suffer an injury on the job, workers’ compensation insurance is supposed to cover your medical expenses and pay a portion of your wages while you recuperate. However, if an insurance company can avoid paying a claim or has an opportunity to reduce the amount, it will do so. This is to their benefit, not yours. When a pre-existing injury or condition is involved, an insurance company may see it as an opportunity to save money.
Workers’ compensation insurance companies employ many methods to deny your claim or minimize the benefits. We are keenly aware of these tactics and will fight to get you the compensation you are entitled to and deserve.
