Slipped Disc Injury Claim
Have you suffered a slipped disc injury that wasn’t your fault?
Claims National will help you get the compensation you deserve for your Slipped Disc Injury Claim.
A slipped disc can be excruciatingly painful. It is most often caused when one of the discs of cartilage that sits between the bones in the spine splits, causing the soft gel inside this disc to leak out. This leaking gel can put pressure on the spinal cord, leading to pain not only in the area around that particular disc, but also in any part of your body that is controlled by the nerves that the disc is pressing on.
A number of these discs can be damaged by a sudden impact or Slip and Trip, especially if you land awkwardly. It is also possible to suffer a slipped disc injury as a result of lifting or any physical exertion that puts a lot of pressure on your back.
We specialize in providing legal help and support for people who have from slipped disc injuries as a result of someone else’s negligence.
Your case will be dealt with in strictly professional and confidential manor with no legal fees attached. We will take your case on a ‘No Win, No Fee’ basis and you will receive 100% of the compensation.
