Home injuries herniated bulging discs

St. Louis Bulging Disc Injury Lawyer

Injuries to the back and spine are some of the most commonly overlooked injuries following an accident. In fact, since these injuries can take weeks and even months to become problematic, they can often go undiagnosed initially. One of the most common types of back injuries is the herniated or bulging disc. Unfortunately, failure to diagnose a herniated disc properly can lead to a lifetime of chronic pain and suffering.

A herniated disc or bulging disc is simply a vertebral disc that has been shifted out of alignment. During an accident, violent forces can cause the body to be twisted or thrown out of position. This twisting causes the spine to shift violently, which can push the delicate discs connected to the spinal column out of place. Over time, these herniated discs begin to put increasing amounts of pressure on the spinal cord due to swelling and inflammation. Unfortunately, as the pressure in the back increases, so do the symptoms:

Symptoms of a herniated or bulging disc:

  • Shoulder, back or leg pain
  • Numbness or weakness in extremities
  • Sciatica pain
  • Difficulty walking without pain
  • Pins and Needles feelings in the extremities
  • Loss of bowel or bladder control

Symptoms of a herniated disc can cause accident victims an extreme amount of pain and can quickly become chronic and debilitating. Because of this, it is important to seek medical attention immediately after an accident. An MRI will be needed to diagnose a herniated or bulging disc.

If you or someone you love was injured in an accident, it is important to seek medical attention immediately to rule out an injury to the back or spine. Prompt medical treatment is the best way to prevent these injuries from turning into chronic and debilitating injuries. If the herniated disc is severe enough, surgery may even be required.

If you or a loved one was diagnosed with a herniated disc injury following an accident, it is also important to contact an experienced Missouri spinal injury attorney immediately. If the accident was due to another party’s negligence, claims may need to be filed against the responsible party. Compensation will be needed to cover medical treatments, chiropractic services, rehabilitation, lost wages and pain and suffering. Your Missouri personal injury attorney will be able to help effectively negotiate with insurance companies to ensure that you receive adequate compensation for all of your injuries.
