There are many reasons why you can sustain a herniated disc injury (also known as a slipped, prolapsed or ruptured disc injury), however the most common reason for a herniated disc injury compensation claim is lifting heavy goods in the workplace. Employers have an obligation under the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act to provide a safe environment for their staff to work in, and where your herniated disc injury is due to an employer´s negligence, you are entitled to make a herniated disc injury compensation claim.
The worst herniated disc injuries can require surgery, and if you have suffered such an injury, you should see a doctor before the condition deteriorates any further. No amount of herniated disc injury compensation can make up for a permanent physical disability which could have been avoided with timely medical intervention and, furthermore, your doctor´s medical notes will be used to support your claim for herniated disc injury compensation.
Making a Herniated Disc Injury Compensation Claim
Making a herniated disc injury compensation claim is always best done with the assistance of an experienced personal injury claims solicitor – particularly if the claim is made against your employer. In this way, you can avoid the potential for an awkward workplace confrontation when your injury has healed and you return to work.
A solicitor will be able to guide you through the necessary procedures in order to ensure that you receive your full entitlement of herniated disc injury compensation, including any loss of earnings for time not spent and at work, and intervene on your behalf should your employer´s insurance company approach you with an inappropriate offer of early settlement for your herniated disc injury compensation claim.
