Assisting Those Suffering Herniated Disk Injuries
Victims of herniated disks often find that symptoms get better with the assistance of physical therapy. After the therapy stops, symptoms worsen again. So begins a cycle in which pain gets better and worse, better and worse, but never completely goes away. This cycle of pain can have a tremendous impact on a person’s life, mentally and physically.

We are your advocates, striving to hold negligent parties accountable and get you full compensation after a severe injury.
The Victim Is Not at Fault
Having handled disk herniation and other spinal cord injury cases for decades, our spine injury attorneys have seen some interesting trends. Some of them are outright unfortunate such as the defendant pointing the finger back at the victim as the cause of the medical condition.
How does this happen? Defendants actually have some ground to stand on when it comes to blaming the victim in disk herniation cases. The human spine can degenerate naturally with age. Furthermore, herniated disks are common enough that the victim may have already suffered one prior to the accident. Even though an accident can accelerate spinal degeneration and exacerbate old herniated disks, the defendant may try to blame all of the damage on pre-existing conditions. With the help of medical experts, we will not let this happen.
