We have made it to the end of the week again. Happy Friday! In this week’s video, our founder Roy Dwyer answers a common question that clients bring to our firm – whether or not having a previous auto accident injury will affect the value of a current Oregon auto accident injury claim. Here is Roy’s answer:

As Roy explains in this video, having been involved in previous auto accidents will indeed affect the value of your Oregon auto accident injury claim. The insurance company will the take the position from the get-go that your injury today is not a new injury. What we need to do when we represent you is to make sure that your doctor indicates that at the time of your accident your precondition or existing injury was better and that the accident aggravated it.
