Will pre-existing conditions affect my claim?
If you have any preexisting conditions that pre-date your accident, you may be worried that it will affect your case, but it does not. It’s called the broken egg theory. If you have a little crack in the egg, then you go into an accident with a crack in the egg. If you’re the perfect egg, you go into the accident as the perfect egg. You still sustained medical problems and they should pay for those medical problems. For many people, the prior injury will have been resolved, and then a new accident happens and it aggravates everything and they’re starting all over again. Of course, if this is who you are, and this is how they found you, they must pay for all the damages you sustained due to this accident.
