Protecting Injured Workers
And Their Families For The Short And Long Term

Understanding Preexisting Conditions In Workers’ Compensation Claims

Often, a work-related injury aggravates a preexisting injury, preventing you from completing the tasks associated with your job. If your current work activity is a substantial contributing factor that has caused your current condition, it may be possible to recover workers’ compensation benefits. That is true whether or not the original injury was work-related.

Unfortunately, the nature of most insurance companies is to pay as little in benefits as possible. When an insurance company is presented with your claim, they will look for anything they can use to avoid paying you, including your preexisting condition.

Fortunately, the team at Baehman Fitzgerald knows how to fight for the benefits you deserve. We represent clients throughout Washington and Dakota counties from our office in Woodbury. We also represent western Wisconsin residents who work in Minnesota. We know how important your recovery is.
