How Does A Prior Injury Affect The Value Of My Claim?
Prior injuries or “pre-existing ailments” may affect the amount of recovery that is awarded. Ailments may offset the amount that is awarded and result in a lower pay off than a full healthy person would have received. If a plaintiff previously had a broken arm and got in a car crash, and exited with a broken arm, it is unlikely that a court would award him full damages for a broken arm that he previous was already afflicted with.
