If I have a pre-existing condition which is aggravated by a work injury, am I entitled to receive benefits?

Yes. The aggravation, reactivation, or acceleration of an underlying or preexisting condition entitles you to benefits. For example, if you have degenerative disc disease and a work injury worsens the disease, you may receive benefits. Do not assume that your benefits will be denied merely because you have a preexisting condition.
