When you sustain injuries as a result of an accident that someone causes as a result of negligence or as a result of wrongdoing, you are entitled to receive full and fair compensation for all of the harm that you experienced. In many cases, victims who sustain injuries were in good health before the accident and it is easy to show that the accident was the reason why the victim is now hurt. Sometimes, however, the victim will have already had an injury. When an accident affects a person with a pre-existing injury, the case becomes more complicated.
Victims with pre-existing conditions are still entitled to compensation but must prove the extent of the damage that the accident caused.
An Atlanta personal injury lawyer can provide assistance in situations where someone who was already hurt gets more severely hurt as a direct result of an auto accident, a fall, or any injury that happens due to negligence.
