Legal Aid for Preexisting Workplace Injuries
Federal Workers’ Compensation for Preexisting Injuries
Aumiller Lomax has ample experience assisting federal employees in obtaining federal workers’ compensation throughout the nation. Our law firm’s attorneys understand the ins and outs of the claims process and how to proceed to get the best results. Your livelihood may depend on financial support the federal government is obligated to pay due to a workplace injury. However, a recent injury is not the only justification to seek federal workers’ comp. Federal workers whose preexisting injuries are aggravated, resulting in a current work-related injury due to their pain or loss of ability to work may qualify to file for federal benefits. A preexisting injury flaring up can impact your ability to work, leading to lost wages, medical bills, pharmacy costs, and many other related expenses. You may not be able to cover your bills and afford your home, groceries, medical care, or daily life without support. Fortunately, federal workers’ compensation is in place to ensure federal employees have financial support when dealing with work-related injuries, including those related to preexisting injuries affecting their ability to work from inflammation or damage.
What Preexisting Injuries Make Me Eligible?
Any preexisting condition can qualify you for federal workers’ compensation if your recent work-related activities and responsibilities aggravate or accelerate them. Your neck or back could have sustained painful damage from a traumatic incident, but you have learned to live with it since then with or without medical care or intervention. Your joints and extremities are other common areas where preexisting injuries might have occurred. Suppose your position as a federal employee exposes you to an environment or job duty that aggravates your condition. In that case, you may not be able to continue to fulfill your workplace responsibilities due to pain, reduced range of motion, or lost function in your injury location. Obtaining federal workers’ compensation is plausible in this scenario, but the process can be difficult. Luckily, Aumiller Lomax has helped countless federal employees secure their rightful compensation with preexisting injuries. Our attorneys can review the details of your claim and injury rating to determine your eligibility and proceed with your claim. Some examples of preexisting injuries or conditions our clients might have affecting their work lives include the following:
- Degenerative Diseases Affecting Joints and Other Parts
- Back and Neck Injuries
- Spinal Cord Injuries
- Joint Injuries
- Knee and Elbow Injuries
- Hand and Foot Injuries
Understanding Federal Workers’ Comp for Preexisting Injuries
Federal employees who suffer a work injury because of an aggravated preexisting condition or injury are eligible and have a right to seek federal workers’ compensation. The Federal Employees’ Compensation Act (FECA) is in place to serve employees dealing with these situations. Please note the state workers’ compensation programs’ rules and procedures are different from those under FECA. Your best chance to obtain your rightful benefits after a workplace injury is to trust an attorney with the process. Your attorney should have extensive legal expertise and experience handling federal workers’ comp claims caused by preexisting injury aggravation affecting your ability to perform your workplace duties.
