Our Firm, Sacks & Sacks, personal injury and criminal defense lawyers, very frequently increase the value of our clients' personal injury cases because the client may have had some medical condition before their accident, which was made “worse” by the accident.

Probably most people do not realize that even though they had some medical problem (maybe even injury from another accident) before their present personal injury claim, the other guilty party, who caused the accident, is legally responsible, also, in monetary damages, if his negligence or carelessness caused the “pre-existing” medical problem to be “aggravated” or “worsened.”

The negligent party, who causes the accident, is responsible in monetary damages, for all of the injuries and “ill-effects” that directly come from the accident. But the negligent party is also responsible for additional money damages to the extent that pre-existing injuries were “aggravated.”
