Strong Attorneys For People With Disk Injuries

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 disk disease or DDD.

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

Who Is Responsible For Your Disk Injury?

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

This level of complexity can make it relatively easy for an insurance company to argue that your chronic pain or degenerative disk 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.
