A herniated disk is rarely if ever a minor injury. If you have been diagnosed with a herniated disk after a car accident or workplace accident, your care and treatment should be thorough and aggressive. Financial resources will be as important as your body’s ability to heal as you seek the best quality medical providers to help you cope with the effects of any similar injury such as:
- An annular tear
- A bulging disk
- A slipped disk
- Herniated Disk
MEDICAL TREATMENTS MAY CAUSE INJURY OR COMPLICATIONS
Decisions by your neurologist or neurosurgeon can end up triggering health problems that become very difficult to cope with. Sometimes medical treatments cause or exacerbate back pain. Even the physical rigors associated with an MRI or a CT scan can be harmful in some cases. An epidural injection, fusion surgery, a laminectomy, a discectomy or any type of orthopedic surgery can result in complications such as tingling and numbness, drop foot and chronic pain.
PAIN MANAGEMENT MAY TAKE ON A LIFE OF ITS OWN AFTER A HERNIATED DISK INJURY
Pain management following a herniated disk or other back injury can bring about its own complications. It is not uncommon for back injury patients to develop drug dependency problems. They often have a difficult time holding down a job because of side effects of painkiller medications.
WHAT IS THE LIKELY SOURCE OF COMPENSATION?
Your herniated disk or similar back injury may have come about through trauma such as a car accident, or it may be a result of degeneration of tissues that in turn apply pressure on your spine. Explore your options for pursuing compensation from any negligent or liable party. Consult with an experienced personal injury and medical malpractice lawyer to determine a promising strategy for bringing an injury claim or lawsuit.
