Can You File A Workers' Compensation Claim For A Preexisting Condition?
If you have a preexisting condition, it doesn't block you from claiming workers' compensation. However, there are some additional steps you may need to take to make your claim. What Is a Preexisting Condition? A preexisting condition generally is some sort of injury or disability that you got in the past. For example, you may have back problems from falling off a ladder while working on your home years ago. As such, that back injury existed before you filed for workers' compensation.
