Yes. A claimant is entitled to sue for injuries caused by an accident, even if they were in the process of recovering from pre-existing injuries. Although a claimant may need to take special care to provide evidence for injuries that occurred after the incident, they can still pursue a claim. In addition to new injuries, any pre-existing injuries that may have been noticeably worsened by an incident may also be grounds for taking legal action.
