If you have suffered a Dade, Palm Beach, or Broward County back injury or spinal cord injury at your place of work or in an accident, you are most likely more concerned about recovering from your injuries than you are recovering compensation for the incident or accident that caused such injuries. If so, enlisting the help of an attorney is probably the last thing on your mind, and you may have arrived on this site because you are looking for more information about your injury in general. If you are researching a herniated disc, a common but serious back injury, you have come to the right place.
A herniated disc occurs when a disc in the spinal column presses on a spinal nerve. Although many victims of herniated discs can achieve healing without going through drastic treatments, some sufferers of the condition require surgery. Whether you require minor treatment or a more invasive procedure, you may experience extreme pain before undergoing treatment, and sometimes after. One symptom of a herniated disc is pain in the arms and legs (often in addition to back pain). If you believe you may be suffering from a herniated disc, seek medical care as soon as possible. Perhaps you arrived on this site because you were hurt in one of the following types of accidents:
- a car wreck or truck accident, motorcycle crash, bicycle accident, or pedestrian accident
- a slip and fall accident or another type of accident on industrial, residential, or commercial property
- a work-related accident or a work injury that occurred over time.
It may surprise you to hear an attorney say that you may not need a lawyer. Depending on the circumstances of your accident or injury, you may not. If your injury resulted from any of the above-listed causes, however, you may be able to claim compensation for your injury. Serious injuries like herniated discs are often accompanied by costly medical bills and other expenses, and hiring a lawyer may be essential to obtaining compensation for such expenses. If the last thing on your mind is how to pay for medical bills because you’re focused on physical healing, a personal injury attorney can handle all aspects of obtaining financial help for you so you can keep working toward recovery.
