How Can Pre-Existing Medical Conditions Affect My Case in Hattiesburg | Richard Schwartz

Pre-existing medical conditions can play an important role in determining the amount of compensation you receive from an injury settlement or judgment. After a crash, it is important that you go to a licensed doctor and document any worsening of pre-existing injuries. Even if the accident did not cause a new injury, you still may be entitled to compensation if it aggravated an old one. To find out if you may have valid grounds for a claim, contact a Hattiesburg personal-injury attorney from Richard Schwartz & Associates, P.A. Schedule a consultation by calling (601) 869-0696, and we will gather evidence, structure your claim and help you pursue damages from the at-fault party. The testimony of the doctor or a medical record may be important evidence, so be sure to tell your health-care provider of any symptoms or injuries that have been worsened as a result of your accident. In many cases, the doctor's diagnosis will be reviewed by an independent medical examiner, so it is vital to disclose all injuries, including any worsening of pre-existing medical conditions, because this could have a significant impact on the amount of compensation that you recover. The lawyers at Richard Schwartz & Associates, P.A. have many years of experience representing the interests of accident victims.
