Raleigh Automobile Accident Induced Sciatica


Automobile accidents can cause devastating orthopedic injuries that result in a life time of disability, physical pain, and financial difficulties. One of the more common conditions associated with automobile accidents is sciatica, a group of symptoms which may be caused by a number of diagnoses but which commonly manifests as pain, numbness, and tingling to the legs and feet. If you are suffering orthopedic pain because of someone else’s careless actions, contact the Raleigh personal injury attorneys of Maginnis Law at 919.480.8526 or via email.

Your sciatic nerve goes from your spinal cord down through your buttock and the back of your legs. Sciatica commonly results from pressure being placed on the sciatic nerve roots and refers to pain, numbness, and tingling which radiates down the back along the nerve itself. Causes of such pressure include herniated discs, spinal stenosis, spondylolisthesis, and direct trauma to the nerve roots. Sciatic pain may go after a few months or persist, depending on the underlying cause. If the pain persists, an MRI may be necessary to determine that underlying cause.

The medical bills associated with diagnosing the root cause of your sciatica and treating it can get expensive. If your injury was caused by the negligence of someone else, you should seek immediate legal counsel to recover the expenses associated with such treatment, as well as, fair compensation for your pain and suffering.
