Most people develop some medical conditions as they go through life. Even guys in their 20s can have pre-existing conditions. If your pre-existing condition gets worse due to an accident at your job (or due to repetitive exertion), the workers compensation adjustor might deny your claim. "But, my job made my condition far worse than it would have been," you say. "This doesn't seem fair." Thankfully, Utah workers' comp law covers some of these cases. Depending on the situation, having a pre-existing condition may not matter; you still might qualify for workers' compensation. It really depends on the facts of the case--your job and your medical history. Ask for a free initial consultation from an attorney.
