Demand Letter - Personal Injury (Rear ended by bus) - Aggravation of Preexisting Injuries


One of the most common issues in personal injury cases is whether the claimant has a “pre-existing injury” or pre-existing medical condition that is directly related to the type of injury suffered in an accident. Often times, the expert testimony of a treating doctor is necessary in order to try and distinguish between the injuries caused by an accident, and the injuries or conditions that previously existed. The doctor may also be able to testify as to how the accident “aggravated” the pre-existing injury, i.e., made it worse in a way that probably never would have happened otherwise. In this case, involving our client’s car being rear-ended by a Capital Metro bus in Austin, she had pre-existing injuries to her spinal discs, but after the accident, had to undergo certain injections in her back that she never had to have before the accident.
