One of the most common defenses that insurance companies use to deny workers' compensation benefits is to point to a pre-existing condition and claim that an injury is simply a temporary aggravation of a nonwork-related injury. As you pursue the benefits you deserve, an experienced attorney can help you combat this tactic.
At the Eley Law Firm, in Denver, we have been protecting the rights of injured workers throughout Colorado since 1983.

A Pre-Existing Condition Does Not Preclude You From Benefits
Even if you have a history of suffering from back problems throughout your life, even at multiple jobs, it does not make you ineligible to receive workers' compensation benefits for a work injury. It may make your case more difficult, but at the Eley Law Firm, we are here to worry about your legal rights so you can focus on recovering.
We will work closely with you to identify how your workplace accident triggered the pre-existing condition or how it made it worse than it already was.
