Is My Pre-Existing Condition Covered by Workers’ Compensation?
Many workers and their employers have the misconception that a worker is not entitled to Pennsylvania workers’ compensation benefits if they suffer a work injury and have a pre-existing condition or an underlying condition. This is not TRUE! If the work injury merely aggravates the pre-existing condition or underlying condition and is not the sole cause of the workers injury, then the worker is ENTITLED to PA workers’ compensation benefits.
The truth is that a worker who suffers a work related accident injury is entitled to workers’ compensation benefits even if they had a pre-existing condition, where the work accident injury aggravated that condition. The definition of a work related accident includes a pre-existing condition or underlying condition that is aggravated, accelerated, and/or becomes symptomatic as the result of work activity or exposure.
