Worker's compensation claims can become rather complicated. Even when a work injury is straightforward, meaning that a work environment causes a work injury and the injured worker files for worker's compensation benefits, getting the right benefits can be a difficult task.
When a worker's compensation claim involves an "intervening injury", one that aggravates an existing injury, the process can seem overwhelming. Intervening injuries can be hard to prove. For example, if your old knee injury is complicated by the work environment at your current job, your injury will require medical further treatment and expensive therapies. Additionally, the new injury may cause permanent disabilities.
