I was injured in a second accident. Am I allowed to file an injury claim for this one?Return to FAQ Videos
Simply because you’ve had a prior incident which ended up including injuries does not preclude you from filing a claim and a subsequent, a second, or even a third accident claim. What you must be mindful of is the issue of causation. You must be able to recognize those injuries that you previously had that became worse or aggravated, versus those injuries that are indeed new. Those are factors that are going to be very, very important for you to distinguish, and you must talk to your lawyer so that that lawyer can help you navigate through the causation process.
