Whether your herniated disk was caused by repetitive motion at work and developed over time, or it is the result of a single, traumatic accident, our attorneys can help you recover workers' compensation benefits. Often herniated disks require surgery, and people with them are put on temporary or even permanent work restrictions.
At Atkinson Law Office, P.A. & Minnesota Disability, we are familiar with the pain, inconvenience and costs associated with neck and back injuries, including those involving herniated disks, and we can provide you with effective legal advice during this trying time.
Herniated Disk Following A Work-Related Car Accident
We have helped many workers with disk injuries, including a large number of people who have sustained back and neck injuries in car accidents while driving for work.
If you were injured in a car accident while driving to a meeting or driving a commercial vehicle, you are entitled to compensation. Contact us to schedule a free initial consultation.
The disks in your spine are located between the bony vertebrae and act as shock absorbers. When the spine undergoes a sudden, forceful shock or repetitive strain over time, disks can bulge out (become herniated). A herniated disk tends to press into the nerves of the spinal cord and causes pain to the back and even the person's legs.
It is important to see a specialist if you are experiencing the type of back pain associated with a spinal injury, as often disk injuries are difficult to detect on a regular X-ray. At Atkinson Law Office, P.A. & Minnesota Disability, we can help ensure that you are receiving the best medical care and oversee your workers' compensation benefits while you receive treatment for a herniated disk.
