Under Texas law, you can pursue compensation for your damages if you sustain injuries in a car accident because of someone else’s negligence. However, you should never try to deal with the insurance company on your own to settle your claim, especially if you have pre-existing conditions.
Insurance companies don’t have your best interests in mind. Without an experienced Austin personal injury lawyer like those at FVF Law representing you, the insurance company will undoubtedly use your pre-existing conditions to try to protect its financial bottom line.

Texas follows the “eggshell skull” rule, which states that a negligent party is responsible for your related medical expenses related to pre-existing conditions made worse by their conduct. In other words, negligent drivers take you as they find you—with or without pre-existing conditions. It doesn’t matter if the negligent party wasn’t aware of your pre-existing condition.
This means that even if you had a pre-existing medical condition at the time of the accident, you can still get compensation. It’s important to note, however, that you must show your pre-existing condition was worsened by the car accident.
You need a smart, tough personal injury attorney to protect you against the insurance company’s claim that your pre-existing conditions are no worse following the accident.
There are innumerable conditions that people may already be suffering from when they’re involved in a car accident. However, there are some common pre-existing conditions that are particularly susceptible to exacerbation. These include:
Claims that involve pre-existing medical conditions are complicated. They give the insurance company “ammunition” to limit their financial losses. FVF Law’s car accident attorneys are highly skilled at evaluating your medical records to show that the car accident exacerbated your pre-existing condition.
When the insurance company argues that you’re simply exaggerating the effect of the accident on your pre-existing conditions, FVF Law will be there to push back. And if the insurance company refuses to settle your case, we’re not afraid to take it to trial.
