    How much compensation for a slipped disc?


    How much compensation for a slipped disc?

    Are you wondering how much compensation for a slipped disc?

    Our back is made up of muscles, tendons and discs, and if you suffer a back injury, the results can often be debilitating, with pain in your shoulders, neck, arms and even your torso and legs. A slipped disc occurs when one of the discs between the vertebrae in the spine is damaged and it presses on nerves. Symptoms can include:

    • Back pain
    • Neck pain
    • Numbness
    • Tingling in the hands, fingers or arms
    • Weakness in the limbs

    A slipped disc could occur as the result of a fall from height, a slip or trip – for example on a broken paving stone – or even an accident at work. It can be incredibly painful and it may make it difficult for you to return to work. Treatment usually involves a combination of pain relief and massage with physical therapy, and it can take four to six weeks to recover.

    How to cope financially

    Coping financially whilst you’re off work can be a challenge if you have suffered a slipped disc. You may need to take weeks or a couple of months off work, and you’ll usually receive reduced pay.

    When you make a claim for personal injury compensation, we’ll take into account any loss of earnings you have suffered and this will form part of your personal injury settlement. Whilst it’s not possible for us to say exactly how much compensation for a slipped disc, you could get a rough idea of how much by taking the 30-second test on our website.

    We process each claim on an individual basis, as it depends on a number of factors, such as your loss of earnings, time off work and how your injury is impacting your daily life etc.
