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. 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.
