Herniated Disc Injuries Can Have Serious Consequences – Protect Yourself
Herniated disc injuries can occur in a wide range of circumstances. A worker might slip a disc when attempting to lift something that is too heavy or without proper assistance. A motorist may suffer a herniated disc injury as a result of a car accident. A store customer might slip on ice while crossing a poorly maintained parking lot, causing a disc to bulge.
The circumstances vary, but the consequences can be rather consistent. A herniated disc injury may cause someone’s back to spasm or become stiff. In severe cases, the injured person may experience shooting pains and numbness in the arms. Sometimes a herniated disc injury will improve with simple treatments, such as medication or injection therapy. In many cases though, the injured person will have to undergo back or neck surgery to repair the herniated disc.
If you have suffered a work-related injury, or your injuries are the result of someone else’s negligence, you should not have to deal with the consequences alone. We can help you pursue your claim for workers’ compensation benefits or effectively handle your personal injury claim. We understand that herniated disc injuries can have serious consequences, and will work diligently to protect your rights to compensation.

For information about your individual situation though, it is best to speak with an experienced attorney. We provide free consultations to help you understand your options.
