Question:

Will pre-existing conditions affect my boat accident claim?

Answer:

Recently I was contacted by someone who was in a boating accident and wanted to know how his preexisting condition would affect his case. The answer is complicated but can be boiled down to this – the third-party is responsible for any changes in your condition. For example, if your pain was a two, on a scale of one to ten, before the boating accident but after the boating accident your pain was a six, on a scale of one to ten, the third-party would be responsible for that change.Pre-Existing Injuries Affecting a Boat Accident ClaimHowever, preexisting conditions are very complicated and should be looked at on a case by cases basis.
