Understanding Aggravation or Exacerbation Of Pre-existing Conditions And New Jersey Workers’ Compensation Claims
It is important to note that while workers are eligible for workers’ compensation benefits resulting from injuries sustained as a result of on-the-job activity, an aggravation of a pre-existing medical condition may also qualify workers for benefits.
These types of claims, however, tend to be challenging. Employers and insurance companies frequently try to deny claims, claiming that all information has not been disclosed by the worker or he or she has not been fully honest about the condition.
When a worker has had surgery to a body part and injuries occur later on in a new accident, the injury is covered under workers’ compensation. If the worker denied or did not fully disclose this history, however, an employer may successfully deny benefits.
