Do You Have a Herniated Disc Injury?
Herniated discs constitute a serious medical condition in which the spinal discs become injured and protrude out of the spinal column, resulting in a pinched nerve. A number of terms are used to describe herniated discs, including pinched nerves, bulging discs, sciatica, and slipped discs. Because most herniated discs are the result of an accident or other injury, a Northern California herniated disc lawyer from our firm may be able to recover monetary damages on the victim’s behalf. We invite you to call or email us for a free consultation.
A herniated disc causes pains throughout the body, often described as shooting pains up and down the legs or through the torso. Because a herniated disc is often difficult to detect it is important to undergo a thorough medical examination after an accident or injury. Pain from a herniated disc may not be apparent; injury victims should monitor their bodies for any developments and should not hesitate to see a doctor numerous times.
Because it is likely that an external cause resulted in your herniated disc, you may be legally entitled to claim monetary damages for that injury. Our office has successfully won claims that have paid for medical bills, insurance costs, therapy, mental distress, loss of wages, and pain and suffering. Our San Francisco and Northern California herniated disc attorneys will not settle for anything less than the maximum damages owed our clients.
