Your medical history should not dictate whether you are eligible to receive compensation from a car accident. As a car accident lawyer, JGarcia Law Firm, P.A. in Orlando knows that all of their clients deserve compensation regardless of their medical history and any pre-existing conditions they may have. To learn more about how to get compensation after a car accident if you have a pre-existing condition or prior injuries, contact us at JGarcia Law Firm, P.A. in Orlando and schedule a consultation or visit our website to see what our areas of practice are. We are committed to seeing our clients get the outcomes that they deserve.


How Does Your Insurance Factor In Your Medical History?


Your insurance is always going to want to blame whatever injuries you may incur from an accident on your medical history, even if your past conditions have nothing to do with the accident. This means that you will always have to be wary that your insurance may target your past conditions when you have an accident. This is especially true if you have a medical condition that is worsened by your accident. In those instances, your insurance may try to argue that the condition was not in fact worsened by the accident or that, because it was a prior condition, the accident did not actually contribute to its state at all.

The other thing that you must consider is the “eggshell skull rule” which is that your insurance company cannot blame any injuries that you incur based on your condition. That is, if you have a frail disposition, they cannot blame your injuries on that frailty. If your insurance company tries to blame your accident injury on your predisposition for injury, then you must make sure that you contact a lawyer to help you with your case.


How Can a Car Accident Lawyer Help?


That is precisely why a car accident lawyer is critical when you do have medical history that can impact your case. They can make sure that your insurance company does not try to argue that your medical history can excuse whatever injuries you may get from a car accident. With their help and their expertise, you can be certain to get what you need.
