Workers’ Comp For Pre-Existing Conditions
One of the most common reasons employers deny workers’ compensation claims is because they claim the injury occurred outside of work or before the employee began employment with the company. In fact, pre-existing conditions are covered under workers’ compensation if they were aggravated or exacerbated on the job.
If you suffer from a workplace injury and have questions about pre-existing conditions, the Law Offices of Bo Katzakian is here to address your concerns. We have extensive experience handling workers’ comp cases involving pre-existing conditions. We provide skilled, aggressive representation to clients throughout the South Bay and across California.
There are many factors that determine whether a pre-existing injury is compensable under workers’ compensation law. For instance:
- The degree to which the injury was aggravated by the workplace injury
- If the injury spread to other parts of the body beyond the original injury
- If pain and limited range of motion is worse after the injury
Only a qualified work injury lawyer can help you understand if your injury makes you eligible for workers’ compensation benefits. Your employer will likely deny responsibility. Bo Katzakian has more than a decade of experience handling workers’ compensation claims and can be the strong advocate you need for this critical legal matter.
