Aggravation of Pre-Existing Conditions
Let Our Laurel Workers’ Comp Attorneys Handle Your Complex Case
Workers' compensation is a type of insurance that provides wage and medical benefits for employees who have been injured in work-related accidents. Since workers' compensation is a no-fault insurance, workers do not need to prove that their employer was negligent to receive their rightful benefits.
Most workers understand that they may receive benefits if they have been injured due to a sudden work-related accident or due to an injury sustained in the performance of their work duties.
What some workers do not understand is that they may also be entitled to benefits for the aggravation of a pre-existing condition, including:
- Aggravation of a back injury
- Aggravation of a knee or shoulder injury
- Aggravation of a wrist injury
- Aggravation of other injuries
- Aggravation of a medical condition (e.g., asthma)
