California car accident attorney Mark C. Blane represented a La Mesa California woman who was rear-ended in a San Diego car accident with about $3,000.00 in property damage. The problem with this case was the woman had a prior medical condition known as Fibromyalgia which was documented to be "aggravated" from the accident and she eventually had a cervical (neck) surgery as a result. Mr. Blane had to file a lawsuit in the El Cajon Court House because the accident happened on the imaginary line that separates the San Diego Court House from the El Cajon Court House. However, Mr. Blane was able to support the medical aggravation theory from the medical findings and obtain a fair settlement. The good thing was the at-fault carrier insurance policy carried limits above $100,000.00. In order to beat the defense in their argument that the pre-existing medical conditions were a result of a prior medical condition, the treating physician has to be in agreement that "but for" the accident it would not have been affected or aggravated. See how Mr. Blane can help you in your car accident case if you have a pre-existing medical condition.
