You can seek workers' comp with a pre-existing condition

Imagine that you hurt your shoulder years ago in a work-related accident. Fortunately, you recovered enough to be able to return to work. Imagine now that your shoulder is reinjured while carrying out the core duties of your job. You are facing expensive medical bills and need time off of work to recover. If you already received workers' compensation the first time you hurt your shoulder, can you file another claim?

Many people in New York will likely be relieved to know that the answer to this question is yes. Re-injuries are covered under workers' compensation laws in New York. However, seeking benefits for a re-injury is not always an easy process.

Unfortunately, not all employers are willing to agree to a workers' comp settlement without first putting up a fight. This is where we come in.

At the Law Offices of Dennis Kenny, P.C., we have extensive experience representing workers who suffered a re-injury or aggravation of a pre-existing condition during a workplace accident. We know that you would still be able to work had the accident not happened, and we will do everything we can to prove it.

Because we have been doing this for a long time, we know the laws in New York and we know what legal precedents have been set by past cases. We will strive to achieve the maximum compensation possible in your case. To learn more about how we can help you seek compensation for a re-injury, visit the Pre-Existing Conditions page of our website. You may also send us an email to schedule a free consultation.
