If A Person Had A Pre-Existing Condition, Will His Slip-And-Fall Case Be More Difficult?

This pre-existing condition will not make it harder. This means that when a lawsuit is brought, the defendant who is being sued must bear responsibility for the damages sustained directly due to the accident.

Certainly, a person would not want to hold the defendant for any pre-existing condition. However, on the other side of the coin, a defendant should be responsible for any aggravation or exacerbation resulting from the accident.

There is a law to protect people with pre-existing conditions. It clearly indicates that people who cause accidents and harm to others should be responsible for any aggravation or exacerbation of a pre-existing condition or prior disability.
