Your prior injuries are very important to an injury claim because that can either make or break your claim. If you don’t divulge those injuries to your doctor and they write in the records that you didn’t have a prior injury, the insurance company is gonna find that prior injury eventually and they’re gonna either say that everything you have is pre-existing or you’re trying to hide something. So you want to make sure that you tell your doctor about the injuries, you want to consult with an attorney to talk about the prior injuries, and you’ll learn how to handle that with the doctors and the insurance company as you proceed forward from a new injury.
