Pre-existing conditions and work comp injury.

In Georgia, if you aggravate a pre-existing condition on the job, you should be covered under workers' comp.   For example, if you had back surgery 10 years ago and re-injure your back in a car accident, you should have a valid workers' comp claim.   Unfortunately, many work comp adjusters attempt to use pre-existing conditions as an excuse to deny a work injury claim.   If that happens, you will likely need to proceed to court to prove that you aggravated the pre-existing condition on the job.   Call Atlanta work injury attorney Brian H. Sumrall if you would like to discuss an aggravation of your pre-existing condition.   You can reach Mr. Sumrall at (404)924-4595 or visit
