Here at Accident Advice Helpline we are often asked how much compensation a particular injury will receive. As an honest and upfront personal injury law firm, although we can give you ballpark figures, the truth is that the amount you will receive is affected by many different factors:
- How was your injury caused?
- How much time off work have you had to take?
- Has your injury caused medical expenses?
- Have you suffered psychological stress and trauma?
These are all important factors and so when you ask the question ‘How much compensation could I get for a slipped disc?’ the answer depends on many different things.
What happened to you?
Back injuries like a slipped disc often happen at work. Whether you are employed in a labour-intensive industry like construction, logistics or the military, or in something more sedate like office work or a call centre, you should never be expected to lift anything without receiving full training and an evaluation of any existing medical conditions. Poor lifting form causes countless back injuries at work each year and almost all of them could have been avoided.
If you think your slipped disc could have been avoided with proper training or equipment, or not being asked to lift anything at all, call Accident Advice Helpline to tell us how you suffered your injury. Our expert advisors will be able to inform you whether or not it is likely you have a successful claim to make. If you are worried about legal fees – don’t be. We only take cases on a no-win, no-fee* basis which means there are only solicitors’ fees to pay if we win your case. You don’t have to pay anything upfront and when you call us, you are under no obligation to proceed with a claim.
