If you were involved in a car accident in Powell, you could be left with a plethora of physical injuries. If you are experiencing back pain from an accident, it could be a herniated disc. The emergency, follow-up, ongoing, and future medical care you receive for a herniated disc can be extensive and costly.
The medical care you require will likely cost you time, money, energy, and productivity. These expenses should be paid by the driver who caused the accident.

You do not have to pursue financial recovery on your own. Find out how a Powell herniated disc lawyer may be able to help you define liability, assign a financial value to your claim, negotiate a favorable financial settlement, and comply with the statute of limitations in Ohio. Contact the personal injury team at Bressman Law by calling (614) 538-1116 today.
Medical Expenses Start Immediately
When you are injured in a car accident in Ohio, police will offer you emergency medical care for obvious injuries. If your injuries are not readily apparent, but you have symptoms of a herniated disc, you can ask for an ambulance or go to the emergency room as quickly as possible. According to Johns Hopkins Medicine, symptoms of a herniated disc include:
- Back pain that worsens with motion, coughing, or sneezing
- Back spasms
- Pain that travels from your back or buttocks to your leg, calf, or foot
- Numb or weakened leg or foot muscles
- Diminished reflexes in your knee or ankle
- Otherwise unexplained bladder or bowel trouble
When you arrive at the emergency room after a car accident, share your symptoms with your health care team to ensure your injuries are fully and accurately assessed. A clear understanding of your injuries will allow doctors to create a treatment plan that potentially leads to an eventual recovery.
The sooner we are involved in representing your compensation claim, the better. While your health care team concentrates on ensuring your physical recovery, our client care team may be able to use the extent and severity of your injuries and the cost of required treatments to accurately value your claim and to negotiate a favorable financial settlement.

Be Careful What You Say in the Emergency Room
If you are conscious and able to answer questions, emergency room nurses and doctors will ask you questions about your injuries, pain levels, and general health. You should answer any questions related to your injuries that ensure you get the health care you need.
On the other hand, you should not answer any questions that relate to the cause of your injuries, that might point to fault for the accident, or that might later be seen as any form of admission of guilt for the accident. Limiting any questions or responses concerning these topics may be beneficial when it is time to assign fault and financial liability for the collision that caused your herniated disc and other injuries.
A Powell herniated disc lawyer may be able to help you avoid possible damage to your claim for financial recovery, define the cause of your accident, and fight for the financial compensation you deserve. Get guidance and direction you can depend on when you contact the client intake team at Bressman Law by calling (614) 538-1116 today.

We May Be Able To Help You Get the Financial Compensation You Deserve
When another driver’s negligent, reckless, or careless actions are the cause of the car accident that led to your herniated disc, you may be entitled to full financial recovery. According to Ohio Revised Code § 2315.18, you may be entitled to recoup the costs of the following economic and non-economic damages:
- Current lost wages
- Future lost wages
- Current medical expenses
- Future medical expenses
- Damaged or destroyed property
- Pain and suffering
- Physical disfigurement
- Mental and emotional anguish
Each of these expenses may be an important part of your claim for financial compensation. Do not risk leaving an expense off your list or inaccurately valuing your claim because doing so could result in your receiving financial recovery that is too small to fully cover the costs of the accident. Our personal injury team is ready to help you create a detailed list of your injuries and their related expenses. This carefully detailed list will help us assign an accurate value to your claim for compensation.
Make Sure Time Is On Your Side
Time is an important factor in your right to pursue the at-fault driver for financial compensation. In Ohio, you are generally limited to two years from the date of the collision to file a personal injury lawsuit, according to Ohio Revised Code § 2305.10. If you fail to meet this time restriction:
- You put your right to compensation at probable risk of being dismissed
- The at-fault driver may not have to cover the costs of the accident
- You may be forced to cover your injury-related expenses on your own
The sooner we are involved in representing you, the better we may be able to safely navigate the state’s predetermined timeline and ensure you do not run out of time to collect the financial compensation you deserve.
