Does Workers’ Comp Apply If I Had A Pre-Existing Condition?
Filing a workers’ comp claim and recovering fair compensation is almost never easy. Insurance companies and employers are motivated to thwart responsibility for your injuries or undervalue the true extent of what you have suffered.
This is especially true when you have a pre-existing condition that was exacerbated by your job. Insurance companies will likely push back on your claim by saying the injury was already a problem before you started work or it was caused by your activities outside of work.

Even With A Prior Condition, You May Be Able To Collect Compensation
Regardless of your own physical health or condition, a workplace injury is a workplace injury. Having a herniated disk prior to getting a job does not change the fact that the injury was made worse by the bending and stooping you were required to do at work. Even if you had a hurt shoulder before going to work, repetitive stress at work could be to blame for its increased severity.
