Florida Accidents And Herniated Disc Injuries
Herniated disc injuries can be incredibly painful, and many find themselves suffering disc injuries as a result of car collisions. When the soft central area of the spinal disc moves through its exterior shell, it is referred to as a herniated disc and can lead to pain or numbness and weakness in a person’s limbs. Accident victims may find themselves having to take time off work to heal from spinal sprains and strains.
Not every situation requires intervention, sometimes rest and caution is all that is needed. But others find themselves facing surgeries, physical therapy appointments, and prescriptions. Finding financial relief is often part of recovering from an accident disc injury.
To understand what options you have for securing a large enough settlement to cover all of the high quality medical care you require, connect with a Florida personal injury attorney. Accidents in Clearwater, Hudson, and Tampa have led to medical fees, therapy expenses, and for lost pay compensation, because of the time off work required to heal.
Ongoing Pain and Weakness
Disc injuries can occur at any point in the spine, but the majority of herniated discs occur in the lower back, leading to ongoing pain and weakness, typically in the feet and legs. When a disc is injured higher in the spine, neck pain weakness and pain is possible. But each situation is unique and pain can appear at different points, nerve damage can result in limb numbness, too.
