Clermont, Inverness and Tavares Attorneys Earn Compensation for Herniated Disc Injuries
Florida trial lawyers fight hard-to-prove cases
Back injuries can be baffling. Two patients with virtually identical MRIs, showing herniated disks in the back or neck, can be on opposite ends of the pain spectrum. Experts concede that although some patients experience symptoms ranging from numbness and weakness to excruciating pain, other patients with herniated disks feel no discomfort at all. If you’ve sustained a herniated disk due to an accident, make sure you choose an attorney who has experience representing this type of injury. Opposing parties will attempt to discredit your testimony and paint you as an opportunist looking for a payoff. At Largey Law, we know how to deal with such strategies. Our seasoned trial lawyers work diligently to assemble the evidence necessary to support your injury claim and get you the full compensation you deserve.
Symptoms vary widely in patients with herniated disks
Herniated disks are a common spinal injury for victims of car accidents, truck accidents and motorcycle accidents. Torqueing the spine can cause one of the rubbery cushions between the vertebrae to rupture, creating a bulge that puts pressure on the nerves of the spinal column. The bulge is easily detected with an MRI, but there is no reliable way to assess how much pain or incapacity that bulge is causing. Moreover, different people have different results trying to remediate the problem. Most people can correct the issue over time with a combination of physical therapy, exercise and medication. Others get no relief, even from traditional surgery or laser procedures, and suffer permanent weakness or paralysis. Complications in severe cases include bowel incontinence, difficulty urinating and saddle anesthesia, a dulling of sensation along the inner thighs and backs of the legs as well as the rectum.
Making the case when extent of harm isn’t readily provable
As stated earlier, there are several difficulties in making a case that a herniated disk is causing intense pain. It’s our job to amass evidence from various credible sources, such as orthopedic specialists and neurologists, so that your case does not come down to your word against a battery of defense experts. Fortunately, our personal injury law firm has a network of reputable medical professionals that you can rely on for an honest assessment and persuasive testimony.
