Insurance companies are notorious for delaying and denying compensation for back injury claims. Since herniated disk injuries cannot be seen on an 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.

For more than 30 years, Elia J. Castranova has represented clients in California with herniated disks and other neck and back injuries. As a seasoned Encino herniated disk injury attorney, he will help you get the medical care and compensation you need to move on with your life.

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.

I hired Elia after I was in a catastrophic automobile accident.  Throughout the whole process he guided me and made me felt confident I hired the right attorney to handle my lawsuit.  Elia made me feel like he had my best interests throughout the suite, and it was a huge help having one less thing to stress about, and that gave me the freedom to focus on my health and recovery.

Elia navigated through the process efficiently and looped me in along the way.  He examined the case, and after taking depositions he hired an expert team of witnesses to gather enough information to effectively negotiate a large settlement.  I hired the right attorney to help me during a tough time.

Thank you for everything, Elia.

I contacted the Law Offices of Elia J. Castranova after being involved in a car accident. Attorney Castranova was very professional and compassionate. He explained the legal process to me and fought hard to get me the compensation I deserved. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs a personal injury lawyer.
