Pre-Existing Conditions And Workers' Compensation

Did you aggravate a pre-existing condition with an accident injury while on the job?

If so, that injury is considered a new one. A pre-existing condition is defined as any injury that occurred in the past or that develops over time, such as arthritis. A large portion of our national workforce works with pre-existing conditions. Many times, the condition, previous injury or disease goes unnoticed until another work injury occurs.

If this describes your situation at your job, our Madison County workplace injury lawyers can help. We are Galanti Law Office, P.C., in East Alton, helping injured workers throughout Southern Illinois — especially those with pre-existing conditions — protect their rights.

We can help you to determine if you sustained an aggravation of a pre-existing condition. We can also coordinate efforts with your doctor to share your complete medical history, plus problems you are having since your work injury.
