Question:

Will pre-existing conditions affect my truck accident claim?

Answer:

A person who was in a trucking accident wanted to know how their preexisting condition would affect their claim. The answer is complicated. For example, if they had a back injury that bothered them and they suffered pain between a two and a four in their back before the truck accident, but after the trucking accident they’re pain got to as high as an eight, then the truck would be responsible for the change in their condition, but it would not be responsible for anything that had already existed. Preexisting conditions are very complicated and vary a lot on a case-by-case basis.
