San Francisco Fractured Spine Attorney
San Francisco Bay Area | Oakland | San Rafael | San Jose CA
A herniated disc (disk) sometimes is referred to as a “ruptured disc,” “bulging disc” or “slipped disc.” A herniated disc can be the result of an injury to the spine, which can crack the disc, causing the jelly-like center of the disc to bulge or break out of the disc and inflame surrounding nerve roots.
Herniated discs often are found in the lower back but also can occur in the neck (cervical spine) and upper back. Herniated discs can be treated conservatively or surgically. If you suffered a herniated disc or fractured spine in an accident or as the result of another person’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation.
With offices throughout northern California, the personal injury attorneys at Weber & Nierenberg have extensive experience handling disc injury claims, including herniated disc injuries. Attorneys Joseph S. Nierenberg uses his 35 years of experience to fight to obtain the maximum amount of compensation for you and your family.
