One of the most common spinal cord injuries is disc herniation. When the discs that sit between the vertebrae in the spine get damaged, they can bulge out, pressing on the surrounding nerves and causing substantial pain that will often worsen if it is not treated.
Common incidents that can cause a herniated disc include:
A herniated disc will not directly show up on a simple X-ray. More sensitive tests such as MRIs and CT scans are necessary to diagnose people who have suffered disc herniation.
If you are suffering persistent back pain after a construction accident or other work accident and your workers’ comp provider will not approve the testing you need, our attorneys are ready to fight for you to get the proper care you deserve.
In addition to herniated discs, our New York City workers’ compensation attorneys help clients pursue compensation for all other types of spinal cord injuries, from whiplash — a potentially serious, long-term injury — to quadriplegia and paraplegia, which can result from direct damage to the spinal cord.
We are dedicated to making sure our clients get the appropriate medical treatment and compensation they need to cover their medical bills and other damages. Let us put our experience and passion to work for you.
