I Suffered A Herniated Disc In A Florida Car Accident. How Much Will I Recover From The At-fault Party?


Unfortunately, a herniated disc injury can be quite serious. Such an injury can result in disability, chronic pain, and sometimes paralysis. If you suffered a herniated disc in a Florida car accident because of another driver’s negligent or wrongful act, it is only right that you recover compensation. Treating a herniated disc can be expensive. Also, you deserve to be compensated for the pain and suffering you have suffered because of your injury. A skilled lawyer can help you fight for the compensation you deserve.

So, how much exactly can an attorney help you recover after suffering a herniated disc in a car accident? There is generally no average settlement for a herniated disc in Florida. This is mainly because every case is different, and the amount you receive depends on several factors and the facts of your case.

Below, we will highlight what exactly a herniated disc is and some of the factors that can affect how much you recover after suffering a herniated disc in a Florida car accident.

What Is a Herniated Disc?

According to Mayo Clinic, a herniated disc refers to an issue with one of the discs found between the vertebrae. A herniated disc involves one of the discs slipping or pushing out from between your spine’s bone. A herniated disc can also occur when the center of a disc slips through the disc’s rubber-like covering. Often, such an injury occurs in the lower back, but it can also occur in the neck.

Common symptoms of a herniated disc include;

  • Back pain
  • Weakness
  • Neck pain
  • Numbing or tingling
  • Problems when straightening or bending the back

According to Mayo Clinic, symptoms of a herniated disc generally depend on where the disc is situated and where it is pressing on a nerve.

Factors That Can Affect Your Settlement Amount

Your herniated disc settlement amount is dependent on several factors. These factors include, among many others, the following;

  • Whether you have suffered any long-term damage
  • Your pre-existing condition(s), if applicable
  • Your age
  • The prognosis of your herniated disc
  • Your medical bills
  • The amount of physical and emotional pain and suffering you’ve endured
  • Years left to retire. However, this might only be applicable if your herniated disc is permanent.
  • Who was at fault for your accident/injury
  • Whether you were partially responsible for your accident/injury
  • Whether your accident occurred due to ordinary negligence or gross negligence
  • The at-fault party’s financial resources

Suppose your doctor believes your herniated disc injury will last for a long time, meaning it will continue preventing you from living the life you were living before your accident for a long time. In such a case, you should recover a substantial amount of payment.
