Transcript:

Even though you are disabled from an injury long ago, you still have the rights to file a viable claim for a new injury caused by someone else. Being disabled does not mean that you do not have health and vitality of life. You’re still important. As such, you must understand that your disability, wherever that is in your body, will become a factor in the consideration of the award of damages that you are seeking. For instance, if you have a disability to your back from an injury long ago and your back is re-injured in this new accident, then that’s a re-injury, and that’s an injury to a pre-existing condition. If the injury is to another or a different level of your back, then that’s a new injury. If you’ve injured your knee, that may be a new injury or a pre-existing injury that has become worsened. You’re still an important person, and you have rights.
