Personal Injury Lawyers – Herniated Disc

Spinal discs are the small, spongy materials that are positioned between the vertebrae and vertebra of the spine to provide a cushioning effect. When your discs are healthy, they function as shock absorbers for the spinal column, and maintain the flexibility of your spine.

A herniated disc occurs when damage to the outer, fibrous layer of a vertebral disc causes the soft, central section of the disc to bulge out beyond the torn outer ring, and possibly affecting nerve function.

Herniated discs mostly occur in the neck or back, and can be caused by:

Also referred to as slipped or ruptured disc, any injury to the vertebral disc can have life-altering effects, such as numbness and weakness in the legs, chronic and debilitating pain, and temporary or permanent disability.

People with herniated discs often experience:

This condition can be very serious and demands immediate medical attention. We care about helping you, or your loved one, recover the benefits you are entitled to in order to maintain your short term and long term financial stability. We will consult with top medical specialists and other experts to establish the full physical, psychological, and economic impact of your injury, and then seek compensation accordingly.

While it is possible to recover from some minor spinal cord injuries, some cases are more severe than others, resulting in paralysis, paraplegia, or quadriplegia, which can be devastating for victims and their loved ones. Regardless of the severity of your spinal cord injury, a certain level of specialised medical treatments, combined with extensive follow-up care is critical. Even treatable injuries like herniated discs can result in extreme pain, limiting your mobility and ability to work for a given duration.

We assist any victims struggling with the effects of herniated disc injury in obtaining benefits and compensation for:

Victims suffering from paraplegia or quadriplegia are usually also eligible for long-term disability benefits to cover the costs of anticipated future medical care, mobility aids, attendant care, and psychological and vocational counselling to help cope with the emotional effects of paralysis.

If you are suffering from a herniated disc, due to a fall, poor work conditions, or an accident, you may have a legal claim for recovery. We understand how devastating disc injuries can be, and we are ready to fight for your rights and the compensation you deserve.

Anna Pastore | Catastrophic Injury

I was injured in a car accident and sustained a fractured ankle, developing debilitating chronic pain. Joseph was very caring about me and how my case affected my family. He worked tirelessly on my case until we won and my case is now well known in the legal community. Throughout this whole ordeal, the only thing I can be thankful for is that Joseph was my lawyer, his care, compassion and experience made all the difference.

Omar C. | Vehicle Accident

I can’t thank Joseph Campisi enough. I was involved in a serious car accident and I suffered serious orthopaedic injuries which prevent me from ever returning to the job that I had at the time of the accident. Joseph and his team were always accessible, even on evenings or weekends. The settlement far exceeded my expectations and it will provide financial security for me and my family.

Bruno | Spinal Cord Injury

I feel fortunate that I was referred to Cesar Carranza. I suffered a spinal cord injury when I fell off a trailer. From the initial meeting when Cesar came to the hospital, he alleviated most of my troubles and I was able to focus on getting better. Cesar and Joseph settled my case quickly, and I felt supported through the whole process, not only by them but also by an awesome medical and rehabilitation team that they assembled.

Nika M | Brain Injury

My father was in a horrible crash and he suffered a severe brain injury as well as serious fractures. Joseph Campisi came highly recommended and he promised us that he would be relentless in representing my father. He kept his promise.
