Compensation for Accident with Pre-Existing Conditions
According to the law, you cannot be compensated after a car accident for your pre-existing condition due to the eggshell skull rule, which requires that insurance companies and the defendant take you as-is after the accident. That said, the trauma experienced due to the accident must have in some way aggravated or made worse your pre-existing condition. Even if you feel fine, we always advise car accident victims to see a doctor so that scans can be run in order to determine your general state of health. Doctors will then write an objective medical report to show how the accident made your prior health conditions worse, and this is vital evidence that cannot be objected to by the defendant or the insurance company.
