A slipped (herniated) disc is an incredible painful injury and can be caused in a number of ways, such as:
- Car accidents
- Falls from a height
- Slips or trips on a wet floor or unsafe surface
- Unsafe working conditions
But when it comes to claiming compensation, it doesn’t matter what caused your herniated disc, it matters who caused it. If someone else was entirely responsible and you’re living with chronic back pain as a result, they should be held to account. Our personal injury solicitors in Crewkerne can help bring forth a claim for compensation and strive to get the maximum amount possible in a settlement for your injuries.
Accident Advice Helpline can help
A slipped disc refers to a disc in the spine that has become ruptured, causing the fluid inside to leak. This pressure affects the nerves in the spine, causing the victim to suffer a great deal of pain, limited mobility and discomfort. And as a slipped disc can take up to six weeks to fully heal, they may also have to take time off work, losing income in the process.
We can help put this right with a compensation cheque. As long as you can prove that someone else was responsible for the accident in which you injured your back, you could have grounds to receive a substantial sum in damages.
