Sustaining a herniated disk in an auto accident, boat crash, construction accident, assault or other act of negligence or wrongdoing can severely limit your ability to work and to fully enjoy your life. During the months or years until you can negotiate a just settlement with the negligent party, you may suffer adverse financial repercussions. Your creditors demand timely payment on your mortgage, car loan, credit cards and other bills. It is not your fault you cannot pay them.
Injury Funds Now (IFN) gives you the money you need now to pay your bills and improve your quality of life. You do not pay us until you have recovered damages through a settlement or verdict. Our no-risk policy means you do not pay us back if you do not recover. Securing legal funding for herniated disks allows you to wait for an equitable conclusion to your claim and gives your lawyer the opportunity to reach the best possible settlement.
Soft, flexible jelly-filled capsules called disks lay in between each vertebra of your spine to cushion the bones and promote free movement of your back and neck. A herniated disk occurs when the outer surface of the capsule ruptures and allows the gelatinous liquid to escape into the surrounding area. Often, the herniation puts pressure on nerves and causes pain, numbness, weakness and paralysis that may be permanent or require surgery, including:
IFN provides legal funding for herniated disks that require surgery. Although we recognize that a bulging disk can be painful and debilitating, IFN does not fund cases that are treatable solely by chiropractic and nonsurgical therapies and rehabilitation. Our in-house review team takes care to only fund cases that can benefit the client. IFN has been funding personal injury claims for the past 10 years and always considers when funding is in your best interests.
A traumatic blow to the body is a common cause of a herniated disk. The impact may be direct, such as from an object that strikes your body, or through inertia, including a vehicular wreck. Examples of herniated disk claims that IFN funds include:
Your doctor may recommend spinal fusion of the vertebrae on either side of your herniated disk. Spinal fusion — or arthrodesis — is a surgical procedure whereby the surgeon fuses two vertebrae together, often using a bone graft, to restrict mobility and reduce pain in the affected area. During your recovery, you have to remain careful about the way you walk, sit, stand, lift and move to keep your fused bones in alignment. You may remain limited in your activities even after you are allowed to return to work. IFN gives you the funding you need after your cervical or lumbar vertebrae fusion.
