A herniated disc is a very serious injury that can commonly occur after you have been involved in a car accident. This type of injury can be quite debilitating and require extensive medical treatment to recover from. If you have been involved in a car accident due to someone else’s negligence and are now dealing with a herniated disc injury you could be entitled to compensation. An insurance settlement or court could award you an amount to cover your medical bills, out-of-pocket expenses, pain and suffering, and more.

At Himpro we fight for our clients working to calculate not only the money you’ve already spent on medical costs or loss of wages due to being unable to work but also look at your future medical care costs to determine a fair value for your claim. Herniated disc settlements depend greatly on the unique circumstances of each case so it can be difficult to determine an average herniated settlement disc amount.

What is a Herniated Disc?

Also known as a slipped, ruptured, or bulging disc, a herniated disc injury occurs when the pad or disc that sits between the individual vertebrae in our spine is disrupted from its natural position. These intervertebral discs offer cushioning between each of the vertebrae and are made up of a tough outer layer, the annulus, and a gel-like center, the nucleus pulposus. When the soft center is forced through the tough outer ring it causes the disc to bulge and presses on the surrounding nerves, which is called a herniated disc injury. These types of injuries often cause pain, discomfort, numbness, and in some cases, reduced sensation and mobility.

What Causes Herniated Discs?

The spine, although literally the backbone of every human being, can be susceptible to injury. Herniated disc injuries are quite common and can be triggered by age, improper movement or lifting, and disease. They can also happen due to an experienced physical trauma like a sports injury, auto accident, slip and fall, or workplace injury such as a construction accident.

When it comes to more severe accidents it is not uncommon for a person to suffer multiple herniated discs, like in a serious car accident. If you have suffered a multiple herniated disc injury because of someone’s negligence, we recommend reaching out to a personal injury attorney.

At our Toronto personal injury law firm we have helped many individuals who are dealing with herniated disc injuries because of a car accident or some other avoidable accident recover substantial compensation to help cover the costs caused by their injuries. Contact our office to set up a free case consultation to see how we can help you.

What Are The Signs Of A Herniated Disc?

Back injuries can be quite painful. There are many types of injuries that can occur involving the back and spine. When it comes to knowing if you have suffered a herniated disc injury here are some of the most common symptoms to watch for after being involved in an accident:

  • Pain or discomfort
  • Tingling or numbness in your back or your extremities
  • Muscle weakness or spasms

Because your spine runs from your neck to your pelvis your pain could occur in a number of places. If you have ruptured a disc in the upper part of your spine you could experience shooting pain in your neck, shoulders, arms, hands, or even fingers.

If your herniated disc is located in your lower back then you could have symptoms in the lower back, buttocks, legs, or feet.

Describe your symptoms in full to your doctor and make sure they are noted in your charts. It may also help to keep a daily journal of your experience. Strong evidence enables you to maximize compensation for your pain and suffering.

Recent Herniated Disc Settlement in Toronto

We recently helped a client who was suffering from a herniated disc injury. Our client was involved in a motor vehicle accident that resulted in a herniated disc in her back. She works full-time as a special needs educator. Her job can be quite physical, working with challenged children. She was devoted to her position which she held for over twenty years and pushed herself back to work.

However, she was forced to stay with a friend who lived closer to the school because she had difficulty driving. She no longer enjoyed her life after work or on weekends. She needed to lie down and relax at every opportunity. She relied on others to prepare meals and complete household chores.

She was in constant pain which took an emotional toll on her. It also caused a breakdown in her relationship.

She contacted us and we went to work for her fighting until she was finally compensated for the seriousness of her back injury and the dramatic changes it caused in her life with a herniated disc settlement of $65,000. The amount you can expect for a herniated disc settlement varies greatly depending on the unique circumstances of your case which is why it is so important to speak with an experienced injury lawyer in your area if you have been involved in an accident caused by the negligence of someone else. For more information on what you can expect, check out our article on lower back pain car accident settlements.

I'm so happy I chose David as my lawyer. I spoke to a few lawyers before finding David and I noticed majority of them spoke to me in a way that felt demeaning or that my case wasn't big enough or important enough to take. One phone call with David and my opinion on lawyers changed. He spoke to me as an equal and made me feel as if my case was definitely important and that I deserved to be fairly compensated. The whole process was wonderful. From dealing with David's law clerk Ingrid whom is an amazing and kind woman to his legal assistant Melissa whom is another amazing kind and talented young woman. I was so stressed about this case but from day 1 they helped ease that stress and always answered all my questions promptly and respectfully. I couldn't believe David got me to mediation within 6 months of being cut off my LTD and got me a settlement way beyond my expectations. I can't say enough good things about this law firm but I guarantee you that if you need a lawyer to fight for you David is your guy! . Believe me when I say this is the law firm for anyone dealing with personal injuries especially LTD denial claims. Thank you so much to David, Ingrid and Melissa you truly don't know how much I appreciate all you did for me and how this will help me get back on track with my life. Keep helping others you guys are doing amazing work! I wish you all the best!

I sustained a relatively painful injury, affecting me long term.I wouldn't otherwise had pursued it, as it involved a relatively large corporation, but felt it necessary to do so. However, many lawyers were daunted, with one, who actually referred me to HIMPRO.I was connected with Dan Holland, who reviewed the case, provided with me realistic expectations, sound advice and had a willingness to move forward and represent me.His calm and professional demeanor, brought me to a place of reassurance. His ease in addressing all facets of this process, clearly demonstrated a wealth of experience. There was never any hesitation, when being challenged, and felt my best interest was always in the forefront.This case has since been resolved, to my complete satisfaction.Without reservation, HIMPRO (and Dan Holland, in particular), would be the only firm I would recommend for these type of cases.
