When A Work Injury Makes An Old Condition Worse

You probably already know that Georgia workers' compensation insurance provides benefits to employees who suffer work-related injuries or illnesses. However, you may still have questions about how workers' compensation benefits are affected by a pre-existing condition. If a nonwork-related injury was made worse by the day-to-day demands of your job, do you qualify for benefits?

Essentially, the answer is yes, you may qualify for benefits if your disability is caused by an aggravation to a pre-existing condition. However, actually obtaining those benefits can pose a challenge. It makes sense to have a skilled workers' compensation attorney on your side to help you recover the benefits you are entitled to.

I am Brunswick lawyer Steven L. Morgan, and I have more than 20 years of experience in this area of law. I will be your guiding hand through the legal system.

Understanding When Workers' Compensation Benefits End

It's important to understand that workers' compensation won't pay for treatment to return you to perfect health. Instead, your workers' compensation doctor is supposed to return you to the state of health you were in before your job aggravated your old injury. After this, your benefits will end.

Let me help you maximize all the benefits that are available to you. I know how the insurance companies work, and I understand the intricacies of the law. You can count on me to stand up for you and your best interests.
