Aggravtions of pre-existing conditions are generally covered under Georgia workers' compensation law. There are a few exceptions or defenses available to the work comp carrier if you aggravate a pre-existing injury. If your workers' comp carrier or employer has denied any aspect of your work injury claim based on a pre-existing condition you should contact an attorney to discuss your legal rights. Brian H. Sumrall is an Atlanta, GA trial lawyer and workers' compensation attorney. You can reach Mr. Sumrall directly by calling (404) 857-3835.
