Signs and symptoms of slipped disk

Posted on August 13, 2015 4:48 pm under Premises Liability

Herniated disk, commonly referred to as slipped disk, is a condition when the rubbery disk that serves as a cushion between two vertebrae ruptures and pushes its way out and into the nerves. Although some people might not know that they are suffering from the condition, most cases of herniated disk occurs with painful symptoms.

Among the many symptoms associated with this condition are:

  • Numbness and tingling
  • Muscle weakness in the area served by the affected nerve
  • Extreme pain in the lower back, buttocks, thigh, and calf. Herniated disk in the neck, on the other hand, might affect the upper extremities

Although herniated disk in the workplace is oftentimes a result of poor ergonomics and wrong work posture, some of its cases have been a result of an injury or trauma caused by a slip or fall. If you have suffered from herniated disk or any other medical condition after a slip and fall incident in an unsafe construction site in Wisconsin, you might be eligible to file for a claim against the negligent contractor involved.
