Question:

Will pre-exising conditions affect my construction accident claim?

Answer:

Recently I had a person ask me if their preexisting condition would negatively affect their construction accident case. The answer to that is complicated. Pre-Existing Injuries Affecting a Construction Accident Claim In Texas, responsible parties are legally responsible for any change in your condition. For example, if you had a back injury and your pain was between a two and a four, but then after the construction accident occurred your pain became between a five and a seven, then the responsible parties would be responsible for that change. Preexisting conditions are very complicated and differ on a case by case basis.
