SHOULD I CALL A PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEY IF I HAVE A DISC BULGE ?
Discs serve as shock absorbers for the bones (vertebrae) in the spine. Round, flat, small discs consist of an outer capsule of ligaments that covers an inner core, a nucleus of jelly-like material. Herniated, ruptured or bulging discs are names for injured discs that tear, rupture or bulge.
Reality is that traffic collisions account for a significant percentage of claims involving injury to the spinal cord. Damages to victims with severe back injuries can include medical expenses, lost wages and physical and mental pain and suffering. Bulge disc injury victims can also experience a decline in their overall health due to the inactivity that results from a spinal cord injury. It is not uncommon for weight gain, diabetes or heart problems to arise as a superadded conditions. Because the spinal column serves as a switchboard of nerves connecting many different bodily systems, over the long term, affected nerves may create difficulty for other organs. Some people with herniated discs experience bowel and bladder problems. A herniated disc can occur at any place in the spine, but the most common area is the lower back.
From the perspective of pursuing a herniated or bulging disc injury claim, documenting the direct relationship between the injury and the accident will help your case. Insurance companies often try to prove that accidents are not the source of herniated or bulging discs.
