What if you have had back problems before your Work injury? Does it matter?

In Illinois, all you have to prove is that your work injury aggravated your condition. The fact that you had a pre-existing condition or problem does not prevent you from recovering under the Workers’ Compensation Law.

This means you are entitled to have your medical treatment paid, time off work paid and a settlement or award for permanent partial disability.

Please call me if you have any questions about your Workmans Comp injury. Attorney Dirk May at 309-827-4371.
