Some lumbar conditions, such as osteoarthritis and degenerative disc disease, may occur as the result of normal “wear and tear” and aging processes. Other conditions, however, may result from acute trauma due to incidents such as motor vehicle collisions, workplace injuries (including repetitive stress injuries), and sporting activities. In addition to causing acute trauma such as spinal fractures and ruptured discs, these incidents can also “trigger” long-standing degenerative processes that have not yet produced obvious symptoms or “aggravate” pre-existing conditions by making them more severely symptomatic.
If you or a family member has suffered a spinal injury as a result of such an incident, or had a pre-existing problem triggered or exacerbated, it is crucial to protect your legal rights with respect to those who caused the injury. There are often strict time deadlines to act in order to protect those rights, and a law firm whose practice specializes in handling these types of injury cases is in the best position to advise you as to how to protect those rights.
