If I was recovering from a previous injury prior to an accident, can I still sue?
If a claimant sustained an injury prior to an accident, it shouldn’t discount them from pursuing compensation for any other injuries or worsening condition that an accident causes. Although an insurer or defendant may try to cite this prior injury as a defense, a claimant may be eligible to receive compensation for the range of effects suffered after an accident. Whatever additional medical care is required specifically because of the new trauma may be grounds for compensation.
