Just because you have had prior back problems, shoulder issues or knee injuries does not mean that your new injury is blocked from workers’ compensation claims. Preexisting injuries do not bar claims for workers’ compensation in Wisconsin, even if your employer says they do. If you have had a claim denied because of your preexisting condition, our team can help you.
Has Your Preexisting Injury Worsened Due To Your Job? Our Attorneys Can Help
In Wisconsin, no matter what type of preexisting injury you have, if your current job makes that injury worse, you are entitled to compensation for that damage. Many employees will enter a job with a bad back, a bad knee or any other preexisting injury. After working their new job for a while, they may then require surgery on that pre-injured body part because the new job has aggravated or made that injury worse.
When this happens to you, do not let your employer tell you that you are not covered by its workers’ comp insurance. Talk to our team to find out how you can still get the recovery you need.
