Question

I hurt myself before in the same location. How does that affect me?
Answer

For accidents that occur on or after May 15, 2011, the law concerning an aggravation of a preexisting injury has changed. The new accident must be the prevailing factor in causing the injury, medical condition and disability. The prevailing factor means the primary factor or most important factor. Since this is a new law, it may take several years to know exactly what this provision really means. If your employer refuses to accept your accident because it is not the prevailing factor, be sure to immediately consult an attorney.
