Pre-Existing Conditions and Your Rights — Pennsylvania Injured Worker Condition Lawyer
Even if you had a pre-existing condition when your workplace injury occurred, it simply does not matter. You have a right to workers' compensation if an injury at work caused your condition to worsen. Your employer may try to tell you this is not the case. The company doctor may tell you that you were already injured. At what point do you decide that you need an attorney to help you understand what is really true about your situation? Immediately.
Lawyer Richard A. Jaffe has been fighting for the rights of injured workers for more than 27 years. In the process he has earned a BV rating* by his peers for his ethical standards and legal ability in this area of the law, and he has been named to the Pennsylvania Super Lawyers listing each year from 2006 through 2011. You may be assured that this is a lawyer who is passionate about protecting your rights to medical benefits and wage loss benefits and helping you to reclaim your health and the right to determine when it's right for you to return to work.
Mr. Jaffe regularly represents clients who have suffered a workplace injury that has aggravated a pre-existing condition. Just because you have a pre-existing condition is no reason to deny you benefits. Aggravations of prior injuries are considered new injuries under workers' compensation law. After all, you would not have been hurt had you not been performing your job.
Whether your back that was injured in a car accident some 15 years ago has now begun aching after you lifted a heavy box, or your wrists that were injured some years back are now painfully aching after working at the keyboard day in and day out, this law firm fights for your rights.
