Regardless of whether our client has suffered a serious personal injury because of someone else’s negligence or because of a motor vehicle accident, an issue that comes up in virtually every single case has to deal with pre-existing conditions. There’s a legal concept here, it’s called the eggshell plaintiff rule. Now with the eggshell plaintiff rule says if you cause an injury to someone else but that person happens to be especially vulnerable because of a pre-existing medical condition, you take them as you find them. Which means even if you had a pre-existing medical condition if that medical condition is worsened as a result of this accident or injury the person who caused it is still ultimately responsible for it. Now this can get especially complicated but that’s where the experts that we engage, medical and legal experts, are able to parse that out for the jury.

Potential clients often ask me if a prior accident or pre-existing medical condition will negatively impact their accident case. The simple answer to this question is “it depends”. Under Georgia law, if it can be proven that an accident in question resulted in an injury, then an accident victim is entitled to compensation despite having prior accidents. However, the circumstances surrounding these types of scenarios must be carefully investigated. With regard to pre-existing medical conditions, Georgia law also allows for compensation if an accident makes a pre-existing medical condition worse. So, if you or a loved one were in an accident that aggravated a pre-existing medical condition, contact the experienced lawyers at Council & Associates immediately for a free case review. We fight for our clients because OUR FIRM CARES.

Proving a case of pre-existing injury comes down to whether there is evidence that an individual may have had an injury prior to the date of the Florida auto accident. If an individual had had, for example, a prior car accident or maybe an injury from a worker’s comp claim, hurt at work, and they can prove that, that would be a pre-existing condition. Most of the time, however, [that 00:00:38] there is no such evidence and this is usually just a scare tactic from the insurance company trying to lessen the value of a claim by just claiming an injury is pre-existing, but having no basis or foundation to actually prove it.
