Must Know Info: Prior injury does not mean your recovery should be reduced

Posted on Monday, January 2nd, 2017 at 9:25 am    

In a new article posted to our Must Know Info page, New York City personal injury attorney Michael Rose discusses how having a previous injury should not have any effect on a new injury’s value in a settlement or verdict.

Insurance companies and their defenders would argue that because a person had, for example, a previous back injury, a new injury to that person’s back is worth less in terms of their financial liability. This is untrue. Whether the injury existed before the accident or not is irrelevant since the cost of treating it after the accident is the issue at hand.

For more in-depth analysis on this topic, read Michael Rose’s post, Prior injury does not mean your recovery should be reduced.

If you suffered a repeat injury, do not let the insurers sell you short. Contact a personal injury attorney from Hach & Rose, LLP, by calling (212) 779-0057 to get the representation need after being injured in an accident.
