Insurance companies are notorious for delaying and denying compensation for back injury claims. Because herniated disk injuries cannot be seen on X-ray, the insurance company will usually require you to complete a four- to six-week course of physical therapy before ordering any further tests. If your pain persists after your course of treatment, it is important to work with a lawyer who has experience handling these types of claims.

Helping You Get the Medical Care You Need
Herniated disks are rarely diagnosed in the emergency room. Following your accident, endorphin’s are rushing through your body, camouflaging the full pain of your injuries. You may not even realize you have a spine injury until the next day. Additionally, because disks are made of soft tissue, they are not seen on X-ray.
When your back treatment is delayed for these reasons, the insurance company may claim that you are faking your symptoms or were hurt by something else. Additionally, the insurance company may argue that your herniated disk injury resulted because of a pre-existing condition.
Mr. Castranova knows all of the tactics used by the insurance company to deny you the compensation that you are entitled to receive. He will make sure that you receive the appropriate testing, including an MRI, to prove that your injuries exist. He will work with your doctor to calculate the full cost of your injuries, including future medical care. Then he will aggressively pursue a settlement that meets your current and future needs.
