Complications of a herniated disk

Some people who engage in strenuous physical activities in the course of performing their everyday jobs are at risk of suffering from herniated or “slipped” disks that may lead to chronic pain or long term disabilities.

Herniated disks usually occur when one of the soft cushioning spinal disks in the backbone migrate or are forced out of place, resulting in extreme back, arm, or leg pain caused by nerve irritation. Very common complications of herniated disks, such as pain or numbness in the legs or arms, may prevent people from going about their daily routines and completing tasks required in their daily jobs, especially those working in any field where physical labor is a necessity.

The lawyers at the Hankey Law Office understand that many Indiana workers struggle to support their families after suffering from the disabling complications of a herniated disk. Fortunately, long-term disability programs are available to help you and your family manage financially.
