What if You Had Injuries Before the Accident

If you had a previous injury, that will not eliminate your right to receive compensation. The injured party may still recover damages for re-injuring or aggravating the earlier injury. To properly document the claim, among other things, a person injured in an accident should keep a daily diary or journal describing how the injury affects him or her and his or her immediate family.
