Reaggravation of a work related injury
If I have an aggravation of a previous work related injury, is it covered under workers comp?!??? I live in WV . In the past yr, I have had 3 hernia repairs containing 6 hernias in all. I just returned to work about a month ago , with a permanent lift restriction of no more than 15lbs. I have another hernia, and I was wondering if it would be covered under workers comp??

RE: Reaggravation of a work related injury
aggravations are new injuries. if it was aggravated at work then you can file new claim.

RE: Reaggravation of a work related injury
i'm not sure what your question is.

sounds like the answer is yes. if it worked the last 3 times why wouldn't it work again?
are you leaving some information out?

RE: Reaggravation of a work related injury
Well previously, I was on the floor working (in the hospital) and now I am in administration. I am restricted to lifting , however, I do still lift minimal things. About a week a go I noticed a lump and severe pain over the incision of the last hernia. I contacted brickstreet and asked them if this injury would be covered and they said that they claim was still open and that a reaggravation would be covered, but I am still hesistant.

If the carrier cannot give you necessarry reassurances I'm not sure what value an anonymous public message board can be.
you can try contacting the work comp court
