Honesty Regarding Pre-existing Conditions

In Arizona, being honest about pre-existing injuries when treating for Phoenix workers' compensation cases can go a long way toward a favorable decision from a judge.

For example, if an injured worker had a prior injury to his or her knee from 10 years ago, and now has a new injury, there should be no issues with the new injury as long as the Flagstaff injured worker is honest about his or her pre-existing problems. For example, he or she may have been totally symptom-free for five or 10 years before the industrial injury.

This is a very positive fact for injured workers in Prescott or other areas around Phoenix. Even though this person had a pre-existing injury to the same body part, he or she clearly had a subsequent aggravation to that injury since he or she was symptom-free for so long.

Therefore, if you are injured on the job, it is important that you consult with a knowledgeable workers' compensation law firm like ours, but in most cases there should not be a problem with diverging a pre-existing condition as long as there were no symptoms immediately prior to the injury.
