Compensation for pre-existing condition aggravated by whiplash injury

Are you unsure about what to do if you have been in an accident that has aggravated a pre-existing condition? Typically a whiplash type injury will often aggravate similar previous injuries, chronic back and neck conditions, or long term problems.

So how do we prove what is related to an accident and how can we compensate you when some of your pain may be due to underlying conditions? How do we factor in that you may actually be suffering far worse because you have a pre-existing condition aggravated by whiplash injury?

Here at The Injury Lawyers we are an actual law firm and not an advice centre or claims management company like many of the companies out there. This means that our advice is proper legal advice, and because we only help people with injury claims, we proudly label ourselves as experts in our field.

The purpose of telling you this is that you can trust us to make sure that your claim is maximised and dealt with properly where there are complications arising from pre-existing conditions. I won’t lie to you – aggravation injuries can be complex and the insurers love to argue them; so getting the right help and advice is key to not only securing compensation, but securing the highest amount.

How we prove your case!

There are two key elements to this: medical evidence, and the quality of your lawyer.

We normally use medical evidence from a suitably qualified expert who is able to provide an independent medico-legal report. This report can address the fact that there are underlying conditions and can identify and assess how the new injury has aggravated it.

Some symptoms may not be related; some may be aggravated; some may be new. Our medical expert can look at this comprehensively and provide their opinion to help prove your claim – and because we only help people with injury claims, we have access to some of the best experts in the country.

Now for the equally as important part about the quality of your lawyer – you need a representative that understands and has experience with not only complex cases but also cases involving your circumstances in terms of the pre-existing injury. Having helped thousands of people for decades, we have that experience.

We will always fight tooth and nail for the best payout possible which, as I mentioned earlier, can be key as the insurers love to dispute these kinds of cases. It’s common to hear nothing but a chorus of “it’s not accident related” or “those symptoms are because they already have a condition” or “we won’t pay a full amount because they were already suffering” etc. Well know this – we’re not a law firm who likes to take ‘no’ for an answer and we will happily fund your claim on a no win, no fee basis until we can settle the case for an amount that is a fair reflection of what you have had to go through.

So don’t worry – you can settle case for the best amount in spite of the complexities, and we here are happy to help you!
