Almost everybody has some preexisting medical condition. Those phrases, the phrase preexisting medical condition probably drives the majority of the system. If you have an injury that’s preexisting or a condition and work aggravates or accelerates that injury, meaning if the work triggers it or makes something that’s been sitting latent in you for a long time all of a sudden become symptomatic, if the doctors support you and say that the work activities triggered that, then, yes, you have a right to bring a Workers’ Compensation claim.
