Understanding Auto Accidents Find Out If You May Be Entitled to Compensation

Herniated Disc Injuries from Car Crashes

Some people watch violent car accidents unfold right before their eyes, while others are directly involved in these serious crashes. When a severe car accident takes place, back injuries and herniated disc injuries can be sustained by those involved. Herniated disc injuries result from stress that is put on the spinal column.

When your disc (a piece of the spinal structure) moves out of place, serious pain may occur. These injuries also are referred to as slipped discs or ruptured discs. When discs slip out of place, serious damage can be done to spinal nerves. If a disc pushes into the spinal channel and presses against the nerves, you will feel immense pain. If you are experiencing pain after your car crash, you should see a doctor as soon as possible.

What are the symptoms of a herniated disc?

  • Sharp pain in the back
  • Extreme pain in the neck
  • Severe pain in the leg
  • Terrible pain in the foot
  • Numbness in the back or legs
  • Weakness or tingling in the back, legs, or toes

The discs that get herniated most often in a car accident are located at the bottom of the spinal column. When you feel lower back pain and pain in the legs down to the feet, it could be a sign that a disc ruptured and is putting pressure on the sciatic nerve.

When this happens, you may experience intense back pain and need to see a doctor immediately. However, back pain can vary depending on the severity of the injury. A back injury from an auto accident can cause someone slight pain, whereas another person may not be able to move because the pain is so intense.

Don't let your herniated disc injury that resulted from a Georgia car crash leave you with lifelong back problems. If you feel any type of soreness, discomfort, or pain in your back following a crash, do not assume it will fade away. Seek medical treatment and legal advice today. Don't wait until it is too late.
