New Orleans Attorneys Standing Up for Seriously Injured Citizens

In the United States, neck and back injuries are the leading cause of chronic pain. Pain affects Americans more than heart disease, cancer, and diabetes combined, according to the American Academy of Pain Medicine. For those who deal with chronic pain on a daily basis, around 42% experience pain due to neck and back injuries. When it comes to workers compensation cases, around 25% of all payments are based on back injuries. It can be easy for an employee to hurt themselves in the neck or back area due to carrying heavy items, lifting or lowering objects.

With a neck injury, repetitive movements can place a strain on the neck area as well as the shoulders. Physical activity like contact sports or weight lifting can also lead to chronic damage to this area of the body.

With back pain, the issue can be caused by a number of factors. In most cases, a car accident, work incident or traumatic accident can lead to the back-pain problem.

Bulging/Herniated Discs

In the spine, the vertebrae are separated by discs, pieces of cartilage that provide support. The discs are what provide your back with the ability to move in certain ways. If you damage the discs, you will be unable to move without pain. Two common causes of back pain include the discs of the spine; bulging discs and herniated discs. When you suffer from such an injury, you will be out of work and may require surgery. At Cueria Law Firm, we are prepared to help you fight for monetary compensation based on your back or neck pain needs. Medical treatment can be expensive and without work, you will be unable to pay these bills. If your injury was due to someone else’s negligence, then you may be able to seek compensation.

A bulging disc injury is when the disc extends itself beyond the intervertebral space that is normally sitting in. A herniated disc will take place when the external cartilage has a crack which allows the inner cartilage to poke through, causing pain in the back.

A disc injury can be hard to diagnose as symptoms will begin in areas that may not be associated with the back. Pain can radiate from the hands and feet as well as arms and legs when a disc is injured. In other cases, the patient might experience pain in the back or the neck that just won’t go away. It is important to seek treatment from a medical professional to determine the problem and be treated effectively.
