What is the eggshell doctrine?

In a legal case, the eggshell doctrine means “taking the victim as you find them.” This means if a victim had a prior injury or medical condition prior to the accident, the at-fault party may still be liable for any losses the victim has suffered and that their medical history cannot be used against them.
