Herniated Disks

Back Injury Attorney in Allentown, PA

A herniated disk is a type of back injury that occurs when one of the disks between the vertebrae in the spine slips out of place or ruptures, irritating the nearby nerves and causing pain, numbness, or weakness in an arm or leg. Herniated disks are most often associated with old age but can also be caused by repetitive motion, heavy lifting, and accidents.

Causes of Herniated Discs & Your Rights

There are two primary scenarios in which a herniated disk may provide grounds for a claim:

  • The first pertains to accidents. A herniated disc may occur in an auto accident, fall, or other accident that causes a sudden impact or a blow to the back. A personal injury claim may apply in these scenarios.
  • The second pertains to repetitive motion or heavy lifting. A person who is required to perform physical labor, such as in construction, may constantly lift and move things, and this can put undue strain on the back. Workers’ compensation claims may apply in work-related back injuries of this kind.

When herniated discs are caused by negligence or occur at work, you may be able to recover compensation. An Allentown injury lawyer at Knafo Law Offices can help. We know the ins and outs of workers’ comp claims and can take the appropriate action to handle an insurance claim or personal injury lawsuit connected with a herniated disk or other serious injuries.
