When you have been injured, insurance companies will do what they can to reduce the amount of money they will pay out for a claim. They will look at your medical history to determine whether or not they can be held liable for your injury.

Our Injury Attorneys Understand Disc Herniation Claims
Degenerative disc injury cases are often referenced as a “disease,” despite the fact that degeneration of discs is a normal part of aging. Degenerative disc disease occurs when the discs between vertebrae in the spine (typically the lower back and neck) lose fluid and are less effective in supporting the area between vertebrae.
Many people can suffer from degenerative disc disease, but individuals who perform a significant amount of heavy lifting, are in labor-intensive occupations or have been injured in an accident have more prevalent issues.
Insurance companies will often assert that degenerative disc disease is not a product of sudden trauma from an accident. While it can exist on its own, the condition is exacerbated by trauma, and the injured individual should be able to rely on his or her insurance company to pay for necessary medical care.
