Question:

Will a pre-existing condition affect my personal injury claim in Georgia?

Answer:

Pre-Existing ConditionsI regularly get calls from people who want to know whether a preexisting injury prevents them from pursuing a personal injury lawsuit. The state of Georgia protects people whose existing injuries have been exacerbated by a personal injury. With preexisting injuries, it’s extremely important to use an attorney who has experience handling these claims; they are very different from an injury such as a broken arm or a broken leg where the source of the injury can clearly be traced to the accident. In injuries involving a neck or back, often, those injuries are not visibly apparent and it takes a lot of work to establish a timeline for when injuries occurred and when they were made worse.

Please make sure that you hire an experienced attorney to handle these claims. At the Gunnels Law Firm, we handle claims like this on a daily basis and would love to help you work through your claim. Please give us a call.
