Legal Options After a C4/C5 and C5/C6 Herniated Disc

Herniated discs often occur during an accident, such as a motor vehicle collision or a slip and fall. If you sustained this injury due to someone else’s actions, you could hold him or her accountable through an insurance claim or lawsuit. If you can prove that his or her negligence caused your accident and herniated disc, you could recover compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.

Medical professionals also have a responsibility to correctly diagnose herniated discs and uphold a certain standard of care while providing treatment. If your provider misdiagnoses your condition, prescribes the wrong medication, makes a surgical error, or commits any other act of negligence, you could hold him or her accountable in a medical malpractice lawsuit.

In these situations, you need an attorney on your side. As soon as possible following your injury, contact a Missouri lawyer with experience in medical malpractice and personal injury claims. Your attorney can evaluate your case and explain your legal options.
