Strengthening Your Preexisting Conditions Claims

When you applied for your job and got selected for a new position, your employer recognized that you were being hired “as is.” Supervisors and business owners know that the workers they hire may have been injured in the past and may get hurt at work in the future. This is why they pay into a workers’ compensation insurance policy.

Whether you sustained injuries from a previous accident or have an inherited condition that restricts your ability to work, there are laws in place to help you qualify for workers’ compensation benefits if a work-related accident aggravates a preexisting injury or condition.

At Law Offices of Paul Kinsler, Esq, we offer more than 30 years’ experience in advising hurt employees in Oxnard and its surrounding cities. Drawing on our substantial knowledge of California’s workers’ compensation regulations, policies and procedures, we can study your claim and counsel you on your options.

Designing Effective Strategies For Complex Claims

We have obtained large settlements on behalf of employees who work on farms, in hospitals, in law enforcement or in restaurants. Our rich legal background helps us tailor the most effective course of action to take when pursuing a workers’ compensation claim for preexisting conditions or injuries such as:

  • Hernias
  • Muscle strains
  • Arthritis
  • Torn ligaments
  • Back injuries

It is important to understand that your employer is not responsible for paying for medical bills associated with an old injury unless the injury is aggravated on-site as a result of a workplace accident.

Establishing a case that connects current damage to a previous injury can be difficult to do if you are not familiar with California codes and guidelines. When you hire the services of Law Offices of Paul Kinsler, Esq, you will partner with a team who is compassionate and experienced in the field of workers’ compensation.
