Pre-Existing Conditions and Injury Claims
The other day we spoke with a client with a preexisting injury who wondered how it would affect their case. The answer is the defendant or the negligent party must pay for any difference or any worsening of the injuries as a result of their negligence. To put it very simply, it is not a barrier to getting fully and fairly compensated under the law.
That is something that we have a lot of experience with at the Chavez Law Firm. We ask our clients about issues such as this during our client intake, and we prepare for those types of situations throughout trial. If you have any questions related to a preexisting condition, please give us a call. We’ll be more than happy to answer your questions and help you out.
Role of an Expert Witness
Expert witnesses play a pivotal role in personal injury cases. For example, in a trucking case, one might need a crash reconstructionist with experience in putting together a trucking collision case. If it is a medical malpractice case, it is important to hire the correct type of medical expert to give an opinion in that case. If it is a case involving injuries in an industrial worksite, you need a forensic engineer who can talk about safety and the rules that the negligent party violated. We know how to find and handle the issue of expert witnesses. If you have any questions, contact Chavez Law Firm.
Seeking Medical Treatment After an Injury
Sometimes clients arrive at our firm without having immediately received medical care after their injuries. It’s always best to seek immediate medical care; that is the gold standard. This means within one or two weeks at the latest. This gives us a snapshot early on of what injuries are involved and lets us track whether injuries are getting better or worse over time. If a person does not seek immediate medical treatment, we at Chavez Law Firm have experience dealing with those types of situations. We can guide and direct the client so that they get the treatment that they need in order to get the best outcome and full and fair compensation for the injuries that they have suffered.
