How do pre-existing conditions affect Federal Workers’ Compensation claims?

Return to FAQs


Any individual may have preexisting injuries or difficulties or conditions prior to their accident. If their on-the-job accident as a federal employee makes that preexisting condition worse, then it would be covered. It would be up to the physician to show that the person suffered either temporary exacerbation or permanent injury to that preexisting condition.
