How Do Pre-Existing Conditions Affect Personal Injury Claims?

In personal injury cases, “pre-existing condition” can be a heavy term. A pre-existing condition is, in short, a health condition the injured party already had prior to the accident that caused their most recent injury. A pre-existing condition is also one of the most common reasons insurance companies cite when denying or undervaluing a personal injury claim.

So how do pre-existing conditions affect personal injury claims? A falsehood many insurance companies lead injured victims to believe is that most people have a completely clean bill of health before an accident. That’s simply not true. Almost everyone who is involved in a personal injury accident—whether a car accident, slip and fall, or medical malpractice incident—has some kind of underlying health condition.
