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