Job Accident St. Clair County Herniated Disc

If you work anywhere in St. Clair County, Alabama, and you have suffered a herniated disc as the result of a job accident, you most likely will need the services of an experienced Alabama Job Accident attorney in your pursuit of Alabama workers' compensation benefits as a herniated disc (also called a herniated disk, a herniated nucleus pulposus, a slipped disc, a ruptured disc) can be a serious injury.

Generally, a herniated disc is caused by either (1) degenerative disc disease or (2) a traumatic injury. In the situation where you have suffered a job injury which led to back pain, your herniation was the result of a job accident; however, many times the Alabama Job Injury lawyers at Powell and Denny have had cases where the workers compensation adjuster claimed that the injured worker's herniation was due to degenerative disc disease and was not related to a job injury, but this is usually a red herring as in many situations, people are already suffering from degenerative disc disease, but are asymptomatic, and a work related injury causes an aggravation or a worsening to the pre-existing degenerative disc disease of the spine. If a job related injury aggravates your underlying degenerative disc disease, causing a herniated disc, you are entitled to workers' compensation benefits.

If you have suffered a herniated disk as the result of a job accident in St. Clair County, but you are being given the run around by workers comp as to whether your injury was pre existing or the medical treatment you have been prescribed is being denied, you don't have to go through this ordeal alone. The Alabama Job Injury attorneys at Powell and Denny would be happy to assist you in your Alabama workers compensation claim.
