The human spine is a very complex and important part of the body, serving several very important functions that are critical to proper functioning of our bodies. When an accident leads to bulging or herniated disks, it can be life-altering.
A herniated disk is a type of back injury that happens when one of the disks between the vertebrae in the spine slips out of place or ruptures, irritating nearby nerves and causing pain, numbness, or weakness in the arm of leg. This happens when a crack in the tough outer layer of cartilage allows some of the softer inner cartilage to protrude outside of the disk. Herniated disks can also be called ruptured or slipped disks. While this type of spinal injury is most often associated with senior citizens, it can be caused by repetitive motion, heavy lifting, and accidents.
A bulging disk on the other hand happens when the outer wall of the disk weakens and is pushing to get out but has not yet ruptured through. This causes the disk to bulge outward, which is where the condition gets its name.
If you’re dealing with either of these conditions, you’ll want the best bulging and herniated disk attorney in Lancaster PA on your side!
There are two main scenarios that can lead to a herniated disk that would provide grounds for a claim.
