Disc Injuries

Disc Injury Lawyer Helping You Recover Compensation in Missouri

Protecting the rights of back injury victims since 2004

The pain from a herniated disc or spinal fracture can be excruciating. It can radiate in your limbs and make your day a living nightmare.

The Ryan E. Murphy Law Firm guides workers suffering from disc injuries through the workers’ compensation process so they can obtain appropriate medical care and relief.

Diagnosing disc herniation

Discs essentially are small shock absorbers between the vertebrae, cushioning them as the body moves. Trauma can cause a disc to rupture and impact a nerve, hence the radiating shocks of pain.

After a back injury at work, it is vital to seek medical care as soon as possible. Unfortunately, disc injuries can be misdiagnosed or go undiagnosed because the disc is invisible on an x-ray. A CT scan or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) test is a better diagnostic tool for disc injuries. So are discography, myelography and electromyography.

These tests build medical documentation that can be used to support your claim and of course guide your medical treatment. Our Springfield, MO lawyer gathers critical evidence in the course of a thorough investigation into your claim.

Our legal team is experienced in the investigation and pursuit of lumbar disc and fracture cases and aggressively pursues workers’ comp benefits and civil damages through a third-party claim.

Powerful advocate for workers with back injuries

Insurance companies are not known for being accommodating, despite all of the commercials to the contrary. They are in the business to make money, so their chief goal is to pay as little on workers’ compensation claims as possible.
