New Haven Bulging Disk Attorneys
Back injuries often result in damage to the discs of the spine. The discs act as shock absorbers to the bony vertebra of the spine. When the discs are injured they may bulge out and press on the nerves running down the spine, causing pain in the back but also often referred pain in the hips or legs.
Disc injuries often go undiagnosed after an injury, as they are rarely visible on an ordinary xray. If you have suffered a herniated disk in an auto accident or any other type of accident, it is important to consult a specialist if your pain is chronic or persists after a course of physical therapy or chiropractic treatment. Usually a back specialist will order an MRI or CT scan to determine whether you have suffered an injury to the discs of your spine.
At Jacobs & Dow, our Connecticut herniated disk lawyers have an impressive record of verdicts and settlements. Our goal for our injured clients is to obtain the best settlement possible.
Was the Herniated Disk Caused by the Accident?
Some accident victims have pre-existing bulging or herniated discs or arthritic conditions in the spine that before the accident didn't cause them pain. It is common for a motor vehicle accident, a slip-and-fall accident or some other type of trauma to "light up" or aggravate a pre-existing condition and cause it to become painful or even disabling.
Insurance companies often claim they are no responsible for an aggravation of a pre-existing back injury. But the law in Connecticut is clear. A negligent driver causing an accident is legally responsible for all the damage that flows from that accident, including an aggravation of a pre-existing condition
At Jacobs & Dow, our lawyers have successfully handled hundreds of such cases and recovered full compensation for clients who suffered an aggravation of a pre-existing condition in an accident.
Don't worry about the cost of hiring us for your injury case. We handle all disk herniation accident cases on a contingency basis. Unless there is a recovery, there are not costs or legal fees.
