A disc herniation is a type of disc injury that is frequently caused by car accidents. The impact of a car accident often exerts significant force and pressure on the spine. This pressure can cause a tear and rupture or bulge of the spinal discs, which act as pads or cushions for the spine. This injury is referred to as a herniated disc.
Our firm has handled scores and scores of herniated disc injury cases. Our first trial at Miller & Zois was a herniated disc verdict in 2003. Our doors had been open for about a month. The defendant offered $25,000 to settle a no property damage herniated disc injury case where the most aggressive treatment was steroid injections.
Laura Zois and I tried the case and we got a $300,000 verdict. Our firm has handled these cases ever since. We have earned millions in settlements and verdicts in herniated disc injury cases.
