Can I Get Workers’ Compensation Benefits If I Re-injure A Body Part I Hurt Previously?

In Georgia, you are still entitled to workers’ compensation benefits if you aggravate a preexisting injury or condition on the job. In some cases, workers with preexisting injuries or illnesses are still able to perform their duties at work. However, if your job exacerbates your condition and you become unable to work or you need medical treatment, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits.
