If you have been injured in a car accident caused by the negligence of another driver, you are entitled to receive compensation for your damages. This is true regardless of whether you had a pre-existing condition that was aggravated during the car accident.
As long as you can demonstrate that the car accident made your pre-existing injury worse, you will be entitled to recover compensation for any new damages caused by the accident. However, you will not be eligible to receive compensation for any part of the injury that existed prior to the accident.
Keep in mind that the insurance company will try to limit the amount of money they must pay on your claim. As a result, they may try and argue that your injuries were due to the pre-existing condition and not made worse by the car accident. It is important to have an experienced car accident attorney on your side who can present evidence that proves your injuries were made worse by the accident. In most cases, this will give you the best chance of maximizing the value of your compensation.
