If you re-injure a prior injury in a car accident, you might be wondering if you can still get $. The good news is yes, you can. It is called an aggravation of a pre-existing condition. In other words, you are not penalized for the fact that maybe you played football in college and 10 years ago you had a hip injury and now you were in a car accident and injured the same hip.

Car accident lawyer Bernard Tully recently had a case where a woman had some problems prior to the accident but they were completely resolved at least a year before the current collision. Therefore, we were making a claim for injuries from the accident. We know what the other side is going to do to hurt your case. They will say something like, “Well, that’s the same problem that she never resolved and that is the reason we are denying this claim. This is all from that prior thing that happened 5 years ago.” The other side will try anything to keep you from getting money.

Auto accident lawyer Bernard Tully’s job is to try and get you money. That’s the way the system is designed, I was reading a book the other day about this process. It said, “When you have no basis for an argument, what do you do? You attack the victims.” That is exactly what they do in these pre-existing injury cases. They have no basis to challenge liability as it is a rear-ended auto accident case and they are at fault. What do they do? They attack you because 15 years before this you had arm surgery. So all your arm problems are from 15 years ago from your prior injury! We are here to help you and we are passionate about protecting you.

Our main focus is honesty. We always preach it. We are passionate about trying to help any injured person or family member with their case. Questions about the blog? CALL US!
