Also known as sciatica, lumbar radiculopathy involves pinched or compressed nerves in the lower back region. It causes excruciating pain and limited mobility.
Lumbar radiculopathy often involves a complex set of symptoms resulting from inflammation in a spinal disc. Treatment often helps, but doesn’t cure the condition in all individuals.
Certain occupations may make lumbar radiculopathy and associated complications more likely due to injury, such as jobs that involve heavy lifting.

Winning Lumbar Radiculopathy Claims with a Customized Legal Approach

For those who are unable to work as a result, employer-provided long-term disability benefits can help offset lost income. However, lumbar radiculopathy disability claims are often denied due to a lack of proper documentation. At Bartolic Law, we have extensive experience in helping clients suffering from lumbar radiculopathy get their disability claims paid. Our Illinois long-term disability attorneys have extensive experience in these types of cases and can help you get the disability benefits you deserve.

One of our clients worked as a consultant and suffered from lumbar radiculopathy, making him unable to maintain a single position for any meaningful length of time. We helped this client get the claim paid at the application, to avoid the long wait that accompanies a denial and appeal. We handled the claim at the outset like an appeal, getting a functional capacity evaluation, and a vocational opinion.

Lumbar radiculopathy involves damage to nerve roots in the lower back region. It can happen in the aftermath of an injury or due to an illness, overuse, or genetic conditions. Squeezing and pressure on these nerve roots can result in potentially debilitating symptoms, which include numbness and tingling in the feet and legs, muscle tightness and spasms, sharp, shooting pains in the lower extremities, general weakness and discomfort in the affected area, and the need to constantly change positions.

Sciatica, which involves pain that radiates from the back or hips and runs down the leg, is a common manifestation of lumbar radiculopathy. Treatments often involve physical therapy, medications, the use of braces or supports, and in some cases, surgery. Unfortunately, these are often unsuccessful, and symptoms associated with lumbar radiculopathy are likely to get worse over the years.


If your lumbar radiculopathy is progressing and making it difficult to work, don’t wait to contact an attorney.
