Everyday wear-and-tear is only one potential cause of a herniated disk. Many occur from trauma related to slip-and-fall accidents, car accidents, and occupational injury. Any kind of blunt force can easily cause a lifetime of pain.
If you or someone you care about has suffered a herniated disk back injury because of another party’s negligence, you should retain experienced legal counsel as soon as possible.
At The Law Offices of Carolina K. Tumminelli, PLLC, we are staunch advocates for injury victims. Our clients come to us with a desire to simply overcome their injuries and return to life as normal. We stand by them on the same team, developing strong cases for maximum compensation in personal injury claims and workers’ comp claims that hold up in trial when settlement negotiations are not effective.
You May Need Lifelong Treatment
The vertebrae, or individual bones, that make up the spine are separated by spinal disks, which provide cushioning that allows the spine to shift and rotate. Spinal disks, however, sometimes bulge out of place or rupture, aggravating nerves and causing serious injury.
These injuries typically result in back pain, but many other issues can arise out of a herniated disk in the spine. The nerve column is closely connected to many other bodily functions that influence the operation of internal organs, digestion and pain or numbness that can shoot through extremities like the hands and feet.
Any injury of this caliber, while difficult to see with the naked eye, typically has long-term consequences that require ongoing medical treatment and rehabilitation. Furthermore, the financial expense of lost income from being unable to work can have an irreversible influence on an injured person’s life and his or her family members’ lives as well.
