Herniated Disc

Atlanta Personal Injury Attorney

Being involved in an accident, such as a car accident, a slip and fall, or some other incident which causes a blow or trauma to the spine can result in a herniated disc. The discs in your spine are small, spongy shock absorbers for the spinal vertebra, acting like cushions. When a disc becomes damaged from an injury to the spine, it may tear, break open, or bulge. This condition can cause pain, numbness, or weakness in the neck, back, or legs. When the herniated disc presses on nerve roots, the pain may travel to different parts of the body. This injury is also referred to as a pinched nerve, a slipped disc, or ruptured disc.

Auto accidents are a common cause of herniated disc injuries. Following any type of accident in which you have sustained injuries due to the carelessness, negligence, or intentional wrongdoing of another, you should contact the Atlanta personal injury lawyer at The Craig Firm, LLC.

Spinal Disc Injuries

Generally, two types of spinal disc problems which may result from an injury to the spine. A pinched nerve is often caused by a herniated disc, causing pain to radiate from the area where the disc has been damaged. The other type of problem is disc pain itself, which may be caused by the injury to the disc or from a degenerated disc. These types of injuries most commonly manifest as lower back pain. Various types of treatments are used to alleviate the symptoms including rest, heat, physical therapy or surgery . Herniated discs may take weeks, months or even years to heal.

By filing an injury claim, you may be compensated for your medical expenses, time lost from work, any other expenses associated with your injury as well as non-economic damages such as pain and suffering.
