Atlanta Car Crash Lawyer Explains Types of Disc Injuries

There are many common injuries that motorists suffer from in Atlanta car crashes including broken bones, joint injuries, muscle and ligament strains, as well as disc injuries. Because disc injuries are serious in nature, many people do not realize how common these types of injuries actually are.

When involved in a Georgia crash with another vehicle, the impact from the car wreck can cause disc injuries to occur, often referred to as:

  • Ruptured discs
  • Herniated discs
  • Protruding discs
  • Bulging discs
  • Other spinal injuries

When a ruptured disc injury occurs in the cervical spine area (the neck region), it can leave the victim with extensive pain that radiates from the shoulders to the chest and arms. When a herniated or ruptured disc injury occurs in the thoracic spine (the middle area of the spine) or the lumbar (lower) spine, severe pain can be felt in the buttocks and legs.

Unfortunately, these injuries can cause victims a lifetime of pain and suffering due to nerve pain, a decrease in range of motion, and the inability to work or care for themselves as they once did. Sometimes, these types of injuries can even result in paralysis.

If you have suffered paralysis, a disc injury or nerve injury due to the negligence of another driver, Kalka & Baer would like to help you make a financial recovery for your medical bills, lost wages, and instances of pain and suffering.
