Determining if an Atlanta Auto Accident Caused a Herniated Disc

If you sustained a herniated disc in an Atlanta auto accident, you have to prove 2 things to win your claim: you must show that your injury was caused by the accident and that the other party was responsible for the collision. A skilled Georgia personal injury lawyer can help you prove both aspects in order to improve your chances of a successful claim.

To determine if your auto accident caused your herniated disc, you must consider several things. The first is your age. While a herniated disc may be caused by wear and tear, it's unlikely that a person younger than 30 would sustain a ruptured disc unless it was caused by an accident.

Rating your pain level on a scale of 1 to 10 can also help you determine if your herniated disc is related to your accident. When a herniated disc is brought on suddenly due to an injury rather than gradually over time, pain, weakness and numbness is more pronounced.

You should also see a doctor for proper diagnosis. By using an imaging test, such as a CT scan, MRI or X-ray, your doctor can determine if your herniated disc was caused by an auto accident or something else.

If your herniated disc was caused in an Atlanta auto accident due to the negligence or wrongdoing of another driver, a Georgia personal injury lawyer can help you file a claim for compensation.
