What Is a Spinal Injury?

The pain from a spinal injury can be mistaken for the pain from a soft tissue injury. Edmonton injury lawyer, an experienced spinal injury lawyer, Joseph A. Nagy can refer his clients for orthopedic assessment.Find out about different types of spinal injury.

The column of vertebrae that composes your spine is identified based on location.

  • Cervical vertebrae are in your upper spine and neck.
  • Thoracic vertebrae are in your middle spine and back.
  • Lumbar vertebrae are in your lower spine and back.
  • The sacrum and coccyx are fused bones at the bottom of the spinal column.

Vertebrae are separated by round, spongy pads of cartilage called disks. Disks function like shock absorbers throughout your spinal column and cushion your vertebrae with movement. They contract with downward pressure and expand when your back stretches. The analus fibrosus is a tough outer portion which surrounds the nucleus pulposus, a soft inner gel material. These disks and the space between the bones that they fill give the lower back flexibility.

Damage to the disk can cause the soft rubbery centre to bulge out of the outer layer. This spinal injury is called a herniated disc. If the expanding center presses on nearby nerves, the herniated disc can cause severe pain. A tear in tough outer portion of the disk is called an annular tear.

I sustained a severe brain injury when I was hit by a car while walking in a back alley. I had no idea what I needed to do because there was no insurance available for the hit and run driver.

Joe informed me that there was a special government fund from which I could collect up to $200,000. As a resident of B.C., there was also up to a million in coverage under my wife’s auto policy known as “underinsured motorist protection.” Joe filed 2 lawsuits and fought very hard with ICBC and the lawyer representing the government fund.

I was very pleased with how Joe represented me and I had complete faith in his ability to ensure I was properly compensated for my brain injury, past and future wage loss, cost of future care and other expenses. After several lowball offers, Joe just kept pushing the case to trial and we eventually settled out of Court. It was a long hard fight but Joe got me the result I wanted. I highly recommend him.
