Bulging and herniated discs can cause a tremendous amount of pain, which can radiate throughout the body, especially to the arms, legs, feet and hands.They can leave victims in pain for the rest of their lives.
Car accidents can often result in injuries to the spinal discs. Herniated discs can also occur as a result of slips, trips or falls. Attorneys for insurance companies can try to blame these injuries on pre-existing conditions like spondylolisthesis or osteoarthritis.
Herniated discs usually don’t show up on x-rays, making them overlooked during initial visits to the emergency room. Because of this, insurance companies will often challenge this diagnosis.
