The skilled disc injury lawyers at The Rode Law Firm have the experience and dedication necessary to aggressively represent clients with protruding disc injuries in the Tulsa and surrounding areas. If you or a loved one are suffering from disc injuries because of a motor vehicle accident or other personal injury, you have a right to seek compensation.
Motor vehicle accidents cause injuries including bulges, protrusions, and tears to discs in the neck (cervical spine) and low back (lumbar).
Herniated Disc: Herniation of the annulus is often described as a bulge or protrusion. A bulging disc is more broad based along the posterior side of the annulus and a protrusion is more focal and the extruding annulus material is pushed out a few millimeters further than the bulge. A torn annulus is often present with protrusions and bulges.
Herniation of Nucleus: Herniation of a nucleus is where the nucleus migrates out of the center of the disc often through a tear in the annulus, which may or may not be associated with a bulge or protrusion. However, one can have a torn disc without a bulge or protrusion, and this often cannot be diagnosed without a discogram.
If you have been in an accident and are experiencing any of these symptoms, it is very important to:
- Seek immediate medical attention; if you are still hurting, follow up on your medical concerns.
- Talk with your Oklahoma spine injury lawyers; never accept compensation from an insurance company prior to discussing your claim with an attorney.
We will help you recover damages to compensate you for property damages, medical bills (from emergency visits, doctor visits, chiropractors, physical therapy, and surgery), pain and suffering, mental anguish, permanent injury, scarring and disfigurement, loss of income, loss of health insurance, loss of retirement contributions, loss of earning capacity, loss of business, loss of ability to perform household services and other injury-related expenses.
