When one of us gets hurt as a result of someone else’s carelessness, we expect to be compensated for the harm, whether it’s for our medical expenses, our time out of work or our pain. But it’s very common for the responsible party (or the insurance company that might foot the bill) to say that a physical injury was from a “pre-existing condition,” and thus there’s nothing for them to pay for.
A recent Florida case, though, shows us that in the right set of circumstances, an injured party can recover despite having a pre-existing condition. The condition can sometimes even help your case if you can show that the other party’s negligence made your condition worse. That’s why it’s important to talk a lawyer after you get hurt, instead of taking an insurance company’s “no” for an answer.
Attorney Christopher Slusser and the staff at the Slusser Law Firm in Hazleton and Philadelphia can assist you in obtaining the compensation you deserve for your slip-and-fall injury.
