Dedicated Legal Advocacy for Residents Suffering Herniated Back Injuries in Seattle
Herniated back injuries involve the upper body forced forward and thrown back, oftentimes due to a seat belt. That torque and twisting of the spine puts extra strain on discs. The resulting pain is sometimes on one side of the body more than the other. Aching and stiffness can be combined with shooting sciatic pain down the leg to the toes. More serious injuries include nerve damage.
Damages can take two forms:
- Monetary damages involve lost income (both now and in the future), medical expenses and other financial needs that result from the herniated back injury. Those expenses can range from a special bed to housekeeping services.
- Noneconomic damages involve the impact on a victim's life and do not have a set formula. In these claims, we have access to vital information via a database with statistics from prior settlements and verdicts to help establish the fair value of your claim.
