Bulging Disc Personal Injury Lawyer

Bulging discs, also called herniated discs or ruptured discs, occur when one or more of the round cushions between the vertebrae (the discs) protrudes into the spinal canal, sometimes impacting the nerve root. Herniated discs can be the result of heavy lifting or repetitive motions, but they are also commonly caused by motor vehicle crashes or slip and fall accidents. The effects of a bulging disc can vary widely. Some people experience only minimal pain from their bulging disc, while others suffer from severe pain that radiates throughout their body, referred to as “radicular pain.”

If you obtained a bulging disc injury in a car accident, or other type of accident, that was someone else’s fault, you could have grounds to file a personal injury lawsuit against the other party. Bulging discs can require long-term treatment, including steroid injections, physical therapy, chiropractic care, and even surgery. In addition to money for your current medical bills, you need to hire a Missouri personal injury attorney who can aggressively negotiate a settlement that will pay for these future costs. You may also be entitled to money for lost past and future earnings, or even the pain and suffering you’ve experienced related to your back injury.

However, herniated discs are complex injuries, and there are numerous issues that can come into play in bulging disc lawsuits. Many people have pre-existing spinal conditions, including spinal stenosis , osteoarthritis, or other bulging discs. These conditions can arise as early as around the age of 30, and may or may not cause pain or other symptoms. When there is a preexisting condition, or previous back pain treatment, this can complicate your bulging disc case, as the opposing side will certainly allege that your injury was not the result of your accident. When this happens, it’s necessary to have an attorney who has a strong understanding of the medical issues involved in bulging disc cases, and who can obtain and present the evidence needed to prove that your bulging disc injury was caused or made worse by the accident or incident in question.

Bulging discs can cause debilitating pain and can interfere with every day activities. If you’ve obtained a bulging disc in an accident, your priority should be on resting and recovering. Hiring Missouri bulging disc lawyer Christopher R. Dixon can reduce your stress, as Chris can handle gathering the evidence and will engage in settlement negotiations on your behalf. If a fair settlement can’t be reached, Chris is an experienced Missouri trial lawyer, and can handle your bulging disc litigation from beginning to end.
