RE: previous injury question Utah - 1171 - 11-25-2012

it's possible.
you'll have to give the doctor an accurate history of your activities including employment.
if they believe work activities have aggravated your condition, they are obligated to file a claim with your employer.
if not, then it is unlikely your current employer will be informed of your prior injury.
no one can predict accurately.
