Question:

Will pre-existing conditions affect my slip and fall injury claim?

Answer:

Pre-Existing Injuries Affecting a Slip and Fall Claim Preexisting conditions are complicated. For example, if someone had a back injury but then fell and injured their hip, their back injury that existed before the fall could’ve been unaffected and there would be no change to their case at all. On the flip side, if they fell and they injured their back again, then the business would be responsible for the change. If their back was generally a pain level of three, on a scale of one to ten before the fall, but then a six after the fall, the business would be responsible for that change. Preexisting conditions really need to be looked at on a case-by-case basis in slip and fall accidents.
