A slipped disc is usually the result of a slip, trip or fall. Discs sit between the spinal vertebrae and if one of these becomes displaced or protrudes, it can lead to severe back pain. But how did your accident happen? If you believe somebody else was at fault, you could get slipped disc compensation advice and make a personal injury claim within three years of your accident. It doesn’t matter if the person responsible is your employer, a colleague or even a member of the public – you’re entitled to claim compensation if somebody else is to blame for your accident.
The pain of a slipped disc
There’s no denying that a slipped disc injury can be incredibly painful and debilitating – your back is connected to the rest of your body, which means back pain can radiate to the shoulders, neck, arms and legs. If you work in a physical role or even a role which requires standing or sitting for long periods of time, then suffering a slipped disc may mean you need to take weeks or months off work to recover.
It’s for this reason that many people decide to seek slipped disc compensation advice, to find out if they can make a personal injury claim not only for their pain and suffering but also for the loss of earnings they have suffered. Your family may be financially impacted if you need to take time off work, and the last thing you need after an accident is more stress, which is where Accident Advice Helpline can help.
