Stamford, Connecticut, Degenerative Disc Disease Attorney

Slipped, Herniated, and Ruptured Discs

We can help you seek compensation and appropriate medical care after a serious back injury such as a herniated disc or degenerative disc disease. Contact us.

A serious injury to the back or spine can cause long-term, chronic pain, even after the initial injury appears to have healed. The process by which this occurs is complex, but there is an accepted medical diagnosis for this condition: Degenerative disc disease or DDD.

If you suffer degenerative disc disease or experience chronic pain after a back injury such as a slipped, herniated or ruptured disc, contact us today. We can offer you an honest evaluation of your case in a free consultation.

Experience and Dedication That Works

Degenerative disc disease is often difficult to diagnose. In many people who have suffered a slipped or herniated disc, an MRI will reveal the damage. And yet not all people who have these conditions suffer degenerative disc disease. There are also those who have constant, excruciating pain after an accident, and yet an MRI fails to detect damage to the discs.

This level of complexity can make it relatively easy for an insurance company to argue that your chronic pain or degenerative disc disease diagnosis is not related to your accident. They may claim it is a pre-existing condition. They may even claim it is not real.

At the Law Offices of John J. LaCava, LLC, we understand that degenerative disc disease is a serious, long-term condition that may require surgery such as spinal fusion. Even with surgical treatment, some accident victims still experience pain and limited mobility that makes it difficult to work or to enjoy life. Our attorneys have substantial experience representing accident victims who have suffered severe, disabling injuries throughout Fairfield County. We will work to help you obtain the care and compensation you need.
