The human spine is made up of vertebrae. In between each vertebra us a soft material called a disc. When the disc ruptures or moves this is called a herniated disc. The herniated disc will then push on a nerve or compress one’s spinal cord. When this happens the person is left in a severe amount of pain and is at risk for permanent nerve damage and even paralysis. This pain is not limited to the site of the herniated disc but will radiate throughout the entire body. If you have suffered a herniated disc due to the negligence of another you may be entitled to compensation. Top of Form
