Pre-Existing Injuries

When a worker injures a body part that had previously been injured or had a pre-existing problem, employers may not deny benefits for the injury simply because a pre-existing issue existed with the newly injured body part.  Instead, the employer must pay for treatment that deals with the subsequent injury, regardless the prior condition.  However, the employer is only liable for treating the amount of damage done by the subsequent injury, not for remedying the prior condition.
