Pre-Existing Injury Claims

San Mateo Work Injury Attorneys

Although some people injured on the job think otherwise, an old injury or a pre-existing condition does not mean that a person cannot file for workers’ compensation benefits after a work accident aggravates that injury or condition. In this situation, it is important to discuss your situation with an experienced lawyer in order to protect your rights.

At the law firm of Galine, Frye & Fitting, our firm will work with you to understand your benefits. Insurance companies, and your employer, may not be clear about your rights after an injury. It may be difficult to get a straightforward answer. Our firm will explain your rights and answer any questions that you have regarding benefits for the aggravation of pre-existing conditions and injuries.

California Pre-Existing Injury Claim Lawyers

There are many injuries that can be re-aggravated at work. For instance, a back injury that you have had for some time could be harmed due to repetitive stress on the job or due to an accident that causes trauma to the back. Someone may try to tell you that any pain or injury was the result of the pre-existing condition, when in reality, it was the accident that was responsible for the problem.

This may be true for a wide range of other injuries, including knee injuries, neck injuries, repetitive lifting, heart problems and many others.

    I called Mr Frye after my wife had passed away… John listened to my case over the phone, after aggreeing to represent me, handled everything from there… I have already recommended Mr Frye to a friend for help with a similiar case and would without reserve recommend him to anybody. He came highly recommended as an expert in these type cases, and I believe he demonstrated this personally.
