Topic: Can Preexisting Medical Conditions Impact an Accident or Injury Claim?
Shannon Walshe: Welome to The Daily Two. I am joined today by Jacquie Palisi, Family Safety Advocate, from Montlick & Associates. Jacquie, you are here each week with some really helpful advice with your firm’s Family Safety & Legal Tips program. Last week a viewer raised a question concerning a pre-existing medical condition and the impact it may have on an accident claim.
What advice do your attorneys have on this?
Jacquie Palisi: Each case is unique. But generally speaking, if someone files an insurance claim against a negligent party and they have a pre-existing medical condition, the insurance company will routinely argue your current injuries were not caused by the accident. That they were due to a prior injury. They take this position to pay you less or to deny your claim.
Shannon Walshe: Is their argument a valid one?
Jacquie Palisi: Not usually. It is important for injured people to know that an aggravation of a pre-existing medical condition or injury is in fact a new injury that gives you a right to compensation.
Shannon Walshe: So if a pre-existing medical condition is made worse by an accident, you should be entitled to compensation?
Jacquie Palisi: Yes. Our firm has been representing Georgia accident victims for over 30 years and our attorneys can help you prove the full extent of your injury.
Shannon Walshe: Any other advice?
Jacquie Palisi: If you get hurt in an accident, the most important thing is your health. Please make sure to get medical attention as quickly as possible. Without it, your recovery can take a lot longer and you will need the medical documentation to prove the full extent of your injuries.
Shannon Walshe: Thanks Jacquie. Viewers please remember if you are interested in more information or a free consultation with Montlick & Associates, you can call 1-800-LAW-NEED or use their 24/7 Live Online Chat at http://Montlick.com.

Juvenile Justice advocates are taking a hard look at restitution laws. It is a complicated issue because, though restitution may compensate victims for their losses, it may also sabotage the future of justice involved youth. Even more problematic, ordering a youth to pay significant restitution may deepen the unequal treatment between children who have grown up with adequate resources and children who have grown up in poverty. This panel will debate the appropriate balance between accountability, compensation, and compassion, as they explore Maine’s current juvenile restitution statutes from various perspectives.
Participants included: Christopher Northrop, Clinical Professor and Director of the Juvenile Justice Clinic with Maine Law’s Cumberland Legal Aid Clinic; Whitney Lallas ’19; Reggie Parson ’19; Assistant District Attorney Christine Thibeault; and a System-Involved Youth. Video Rating: / 5
