Does a pre-existing condition affect workers’ compensation?

Many workers find themselves injured on the job and they may be eligible for workers’ compensation, though they may be denied due to a pre-existing condition. An insurance company or employer cannot deny a claim simply because the employee has a pre-existing injury or condition.

The employee must file the workers’ compensation claim based on a new incident. You must show that that work-related injury aggravated your pre-existing injury or condition. What matters is the evidence that the workplace injury worsened the old injury. A pre-existing condition develops before beginning work in your current position or place of employment. You must have already received treatment for this condition.

Are you prepared for a motorcycle accident?

Riding a motorcycle is definitely a thrill, and not making it home after your ride is probably not at the top of your mind when you’re flying down the road. However, motorcycle accidents do happen, and it is good to be prepared before you get into one.

When comparing motorcyclists to every other vehicle on the road, they are the most vulnerable group. Two wheel motorists are 27 percent more likely to be injured or killed in an accident.
