A serious injury to the neck can leave an individual with life-altering disabilities that may prevent him or her from ever returning to work or participating in the hobbies and activities he or she once enjoyed. A neck injury can occur due to a motor vehicle accident, a slip/trip and fall, or trauma to the neck or head. This type of injury to the neck can cause the discs of the cervical spine to bulge or herniate, which often will produce neck pain or numbness in the arms, hands, or fingers. The dedicated legal team of Hach & Rose, LLP can help neck injury victims in New York fight for the full, generous compensation they deserve from the person or party at fault for their pain and suffering. Call us if you suffered a neck injury resulting in disc bulges and it wasn’t your fault.
Neck Injury Resulting in Disc Bulges and Herniations Treatment Options
Neck injury treatment depends on the severity of the bulges or herniations and whether this injury involves the nerves which run through the spinal column. The following are common treatments for spinal cord injuries:
- Medications, especially for pain management
- Physical therapy
- Occupational therapy and vocational counseling
Hach & Rose, LLP represented a 43-year-old woman seriously injured in a motor vehicle accident on the New England Thruway when a reckless driver struck her vehicle.
As a result of this accident, she suffered bulges and herniations to her cervical spine (neck), which caused pain, headaches, and numbness in her arms and fingers.
Our client could not continue working as a salesperson in a clothing store and could no longer enjoy activities such as bike riding and visiting the gym. After six months of treatment with physical therapy were not successful, she underwent spinal surgery consisting of a fusion of her spine at two levels. Hach & Rose, LLP, negotiated a pre-trial settlement for this client, securing $905,000.00 as compensation for her past and future pain and suffering resulting from this neck injury.
