What Are Herniated Discs?

A herniated disc is a spinal injury which is frequently caused by a car accident or other trauma. When the cushion that sits between the spinal vertebra is pushed outside its normal position, the result is a herniated disc. This can cause the spinal discs to press against the nerves on the spine and create severe pain in the back and legs. Tingling in the hands, feet, legs or arms are also telltale signs of a herniated disc injury.

A severe herniated disc injury may leave patients in constant pain for the rest of their lives. Despite the availability of various treatments for a herniated disc, there are still severe cases where surgery must be performed to relieve the patient of their pain from the herniated disc.

Legal Strategy To Fight Your Case

In order to have a strong legal claim for a herniated disc injury, you must be able to prove that:

  • The other party was at fault for causing your injury
  • Your injury arose as a result of the incident in question (usually a car accident, slip and fall accident or work injury) and was not due to a pre-existing condition
  • The party at fault has sufficient insurance coverage to pay you for damages

The issue of pre-existing conditions often arises in herniated disc cases. The party at fault will frequently argue that the patient suffered from back pain before the incident in question and that the accident was not the cause of the patient's condition.

In such cases, it is important that your personal injury lawyer is able to demonstrate that the accident was the actual cause of the injury, or that there is a notable difference in your way of life after the accident that would not have occurred in the absence of the accident. If you can prove this "causation", the chance of a quality personal injury settlement increases dramatically.
