Can you get a herniated disk from a car accident?


If you or a loved one has sustained a herniated disk injury from an accident, contact Mike Agruss Law for a free consultation so we can help you recover from this experience and get fairly compensated.

A herniated disk is the result of a high-energy impact that injures the spine, such as a fall or a motor vehicle collision. This causes one or more of the disks to crack on the outside, tough cartilage part and allow the softer inner cartilage to protrude out of the disk’s perimeter.

An auto accident is actually one of the more common ways that people get herniated disk injuries. After an car accident, if you are jerked back from the impact, your spine may get a heavy blow of the impact thrown at it. This can cause one of the disks to move out of place and bear the brunt of the collision, leading to a slipped or herniated disk.

There are signs that you should look out for that may indicate that you have experienced a herniated disk. Some common symptoms include the following:

  • Pain that worsens with movement or repositioning
  • Pain in your arms, legs, and/or buttocks
  • Weakness, numbness, or tingling in or around the affected area
  • Cramping or muscle spasms in your back or leg

If you experience any of these, you should see a doctor as soon as possible so that they can diagnose and treat you appropriately. Leaving these types of injuries untreated can lead to permanent nerve damage or loss of bladder and bowel control, so it is important that you seek medical attention as soon as you can.

If another person caused your injuries, you can file a claim against them for monetary damages.
