It’s a common misconception that people who are unfortunate enough to have a pre-existing condition aggravated after being involved in an accident that was not their fault will not be in a position to go about claiming after a car crash in South Hams.
While it may be the case that you might struggle to make a claim for a pre-existing condition that reoccurred naturally on your travel or health insurance without having taken out specialist cover, making a claim for personal injury compensation might be different. It might well be the case that your injury will require more detailed medical examination than if you were to sustain a new injury in a road traffic that was not your fault, but you will by no means be automatically excluded from seeking out a compensation pay-out.
Claiming after a car crash in South Hams
Many types of injuries or conditions that might have been all but cured from through therapy and treatment can be aggravated after being involved in an accident that was not your fault. If this were to happen to you, it will only be right that you should have the opportunity to seek a compensation pay-out from the party that was responsible for the incident that led to you being hurt.
While it might be true that your pre-existing condition might have made you more vulnerable to being more badly hurt than you might otherwise have been, the fact will still remain that it would not have been aggravated if not for the negligent behaviour of the party whose conduct caused the accident you were involved in. If it can be proved that your condition would not have flared up again if it had not been for the fact that you were injured in an accident that was not your fault, you might well be able to seek out a compensation pay-out.
