Can I legally file for workers’ comp?
You do have the right to pursue compensation for a pre-existing health condition which was aggravated by an accident on the job. You may have a case if your pre-existing injury was aggravated by an accident on the job.
An aggravation means:
- Some type of temporary or permanent increase in your disability,
- A condition where new medical treatment is required, or
- A condition necessitating a changed course of treatment
In the event that there was no accident to trigger a flare-up in your condition, the court could very well define this as “exacerbation” and not “aggravation,” meaning your condition is not “new” in a legal sense, and you could be unable to recover compensation.
