A San Diego accident can have serious physical and health repercussions for those who are involved, among them a herniated disc. Existing California injury law stipulates that if someone else was responsible for the accident that caused your injuries, they may be held financially liable for the cost of your medical treatment, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
Signs of a Herniated Disc After a San Diego Accident
Indicators that you are suffering from a herniated disc can vary depending on the size and position of the disc.
- aches and pains in the lower back;
- numbness or weakness in the area of the body to which the compressed nerve travels;
- inability to stand for long periods of time; and
- pain when attempting to twist or bend in the back or neck.
It is important to reinforce the point that symptoms vary greatly based on the location and severity of the injury, so if you even slightly suspect that you are suffering from a herniated disc, seek medical attention.
If the accident that caused your injuries was the result of another's negligence, contact a California injury lawyer who can help you pursue an accident claim.
