Injuries & Disabling Conditions

Workers’ Compensation Overview

Pre-Existing Conditions

Insurance companies and company representatives often try to deny that they are accountable for the aggravation, exacerbation or acceleration of an employee’s medical condition that existed prior to his or her being hired. For example, if you suffer from minor arthritis that would normally not affect your work, and your work conditions worsen that arthritis, your employer may owe you compensation.

If you are over the age of 20 and have been asked to take an X-ray, chances are you will show some degeneration in the bones or spine. This is a natural part of aging. Insurance companies may argue that natural degeneration is a pre-existing condition and that you do not have a compensable injury. Unfortunately, they do not have your best interests in mind. In Illinois, the work injury or activity merely needs to be a contributing factor to the current medical problem. If you have talked to a company representative who stated that your pre-existing back or neck condition would not be covered, talk to our attorneys at Glass & Korein, LLC, today. We will discuss your rights and fight for the compensation you deserve.
