Question:

Will pre-existing conditions affect my bicycle accident claim?

Answer:

Pre-Existing Injuries Affecting a Bicycle Accident Claim Recently. I was contacted by someone who was in a bicycle accident and wanted to know how their preexisting condition would affect their case. The answer is complicated but can be boiled down to this; the third-party is responsible for any change in your condition. For example, if you had a back injury before your bike accident and, on average, your pain level was a two on a scale of ten before the accident but was a six after the accident, then the third-party would be responsible for any change in your condition. However, preexisting conditions can be much more complicated than that, so it’s best to talk to an attorney about how your preexisting condition affects your case.
