Exacerbated pre-existing workplace injury claim tough to navigate

When workers in California suffer workplace injuries, they are entitled to pursue compensation through the workers' compensation insurance program. In some cases, it is tough to prove that a workplace injury was work-related. For example, claims for injuries that exacerbated pre-existing injuries or health problems are sometimes denied, and if not, the fact that they are linked to previous conditions may affect the awarded benefits.

Pre-existing injuries could include fractured bones, herniated discs, torn ligaments and more. Current working conditions frequently aggravate general health issues -- often those associated with age such as arthritis or spine degeneration. Whether the pre-existing injury or condition resulted from a previous work accident or some unrelated illness or incident should not affect the viability of a claim.

Medical documentation plays a significant role in these cases, and making sure the requirements are met is another challenge. Fortunately, injured workers can focus on recovery and leave the workers' comp claims to the experienced attorneys at the Law Offices of William S. Lindheim in Torrance. Claims could not be in better hands than those of the three Board Certified Workers' Compensation Specialists attorneys at these law offices.

The lawyers at the Law Offices of William S. Lindheim will assess how the injured worker's particular condition affects the claim. With their exceptional skill level, they can navigate any type of workers' comp claims, including those that involve pre-existing conditions.
