If workplace activity leads to the aggravation of a preexisting condition, you may receive workers' compensation benefits regardless of whether or not the preexisting condition is work related. Many injuries and conditions can result from the aggravation of a preexisting injury, including:

    • Back pain
    • Knee and joint injuries
    • Occupational diseases
    • Respiratory conditions
    • Spinal cord injuries
    • Head injuries
    • Repetitive stress injuries

Our attorneys know Pennsylvania workers' compensation law from the inside out, and have extensive experience handling workplace injury claims and appealing denied claims. Many workers do not realize that they are entitled to benefits when a preexisting condition is aggravated by workplace activity. But even the most common day-to-day activities — such as stepping in and out of a truck, or even typing — can lead to an workplace injury. If your aggravation or exacerbation claim has been denied, we will stand up for your rights and aggressively pursue the results you deserve.
