Using Your Medical History Against You
•You had hearing or vision problems and weren't wearing glasses or hearing aid.
•You had other physical defects, i.e., epilepsy, headaches, sickness, etc., which impaired driving ability and perception and reaction time.
•You were on medications for other medical conditions and that medication affected your ability to drive
•You already had an injury to the same area and, thus, there is no way you could have been injured at all/or as injured as you claim

•Because of the aging process, you already had bulging discs and, thus, there is no way you could have been injured at all/or as injured as you claim
