Workers’ Compensation Aggravation and Exacerbation of Injury Claims
“Getting workers comp if previous my injury was aggravated on my current job”
If work-related activities have aggravated or exacerbated a preexisting condition, you may have the right to obtain workers’ compensation benefits for your medical bills and lost wages.
At Martin Law, our experienced workers’ compensation lawyers can help you determine whether or not workers’ compensation law applies to your case. We have extensive experience helping injured workers throughout Pennsylvania.
Pennsylvania Exacerbation Claims Attorney
To be covered under workers’ compensation law, a preexisting condition does not have to be work-related, but the aggravation or exacerbation has to be from work-related activities.
For example, if you have a knee injury that has been aggravated by repeated bending and stooping required by your job, you will most likely qualify for workers’ compensation if your injury prevents you from working.
Our attorneys are well-versed in the state and federal workers’ compensation laws concerning aggravation and exacerbation claims. We will help you understand your rights and help you obtain compensation for your medical bills and a portion of your lost wages.
Has your injury been aggravated by work-related activities? Contact attorneys who understand the value of your disability claim and who will stand up for your rights. We offer a free consultation, and there are no attorney fees for representing you in hearings or appeals unless we win your case.
