Approximate amount of lump sum settlement for herniated disc surgery?
It all depends on how badly you are injured. There are actually many factors. My friend is an auto mechanic and a chisel that was being hammered on broke and a sliver shot across the garage and went thru all 12 layers of his eye. There is no surgery available to fix his blindness in one eye. Workers comp only gave him 90,000. You do not get a lot of money for your injuries. It is not like suing for medical malpractice or for an auto accident. The money they pay is quite less. I would imagine around 40,000 would be your answer and that's only if you have the right lawyer. Get a lawyer!

There is no average award or settlement for a herniated disc, because so many different factors are involved. Award amounts will vary depending on whether the cause was ne…gligence or not and what actually happened. A range for a settlement amount for a herniated disc is anywhere from $20,000 to $150,000 or more.
Unfortunately, there is not a specific time for recovery as no two people can recover in the same way at the same rate. An average time frame would be between one month and si…x months. Within one month around 50% of people have recovered, and within six months 96% have recovered.
Will surgery be necessary for a 16-year-old with a cervical disc herniation on c5 and c6 with bulging discs on c2 through c6?
NO I REPEAT NO i have hernatied idsc on the lumber 4 and 5 large hernations and my scaitca nerve all the way down my left leg i had the option for surgery but i got the ep…druil injections it toke two times but i feel great surgery is not worth it cause they can revese what they cut ok? Chiropractic should be your first stop Surgery is the last resort...always. You can't unboil a hard boiled egg. Surgery is permanent. Epidural injections will only mask the pain, they don't fix the cause. Thousands and thousands of people, every year, are able to reverse disc bulges by chiropractic care. These guys fix the problem at the biomechanical root. Pain relief is just a pleasant side effect. If your son is so young, then his body should have no problems making a great recovery. Why not try a conservative, non-invasive approach first. Go more radical if your results aren't made. Too many people try an easy, conservative means after heavy drugs and expensive surgeries have left them back at square one. im 20 yrs old, i had a buldgeing disk at l5 s1 and it hurt so bad i did the epidural injections as well i did a series of 3. the first one was worthless. the second one was for my sciatica nerve for my left leg pain and it helped, but my back pain was unbearable. the 3rd injection i had, i got 6 shots he was hitting every joint and the disc and he also hit the nerve one more time cause my leg pain had came back. then i went to a place where they hook you up to a machine and pull you apart to try and relive the pressure off the discs but that didnt help at all it made it worse. i had done physical theropy it made it worse. i just recently had a L5 S1 fusion and i feel great. its a whole different type of pain, the pain is from the surgery but other than the whole back pain its gone except where they cut and put the rods and screws. i was offered a artificial disc replacement but they only last about 10-15 years and then a fusion is required after that. this is what my doctor told me. but definantly surgery is last resort. if he can bear the pain then let him. i suggest the injections most definantly!!!
No. A bulging disc is a disc that has mildly or severely (depending on what the diagnostics prove) buldged from the intervertebral space. This means that the nucleus inside th…e disc is intact and still within the disc space, but the disc itself has bulged outward. A herniated disc is the same thing as a ruptured disc in which case the nucleus has exited the intervertebral space and the two vetrebrae are essentially "bone on bone". A bulging disc occurs more often as we age or as repetitive activities weaken the the disc. Herniated discs are more often specifically related to trauma/injury sustained and are more acute (sudden) in onset.
Like structured settlements, lump sum settlements received as a result of a judgment in the case of injury or disability are not taxable, either. And, if the recipient of the …award is relatively young, a structured settlement may be the worst option available, because it does not account for inflation or future changes in lifestyle. The advice of a qualified financial advisor or Certified Financial Planner should be sought before determining if a structured settlement is even a viable option. The reason most insurance companies will push for a structured settlement is because the insurance company wins by doing so. If a dollar today is worth more than a dollar a year from now due to inflation, of course the insurance company would prefer to pay you a flat rate per month for the rest of your life, rather than give you a large lump sum in cash. Believe me, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Measure twice. Cut once.
It is a condition in which part of an organ becomes displaced and protrudes through the wall of the cavity that contains it.
Yes, sometimes the surgery doent work for the disk it was meant to treat, and it is also possible to herniated another disk that wasnt treated.
The average settlement about after disc fusion surgery is $50,000. This amount can vary greatly depending on the severity of the surgery and the extensive risks associated… with it.
If you had microdiscectomy surgery, it can take as long as 3-4 months for the spine to fully scar over. However, normal activities may be resumed 2-3 weeks after surgery. Just… be careful not to push your body too far.
As the spinal disc becomes less elastic, it can rupture. When the disc ruptures, a portion of the spinal disc pushes outside its normal boundary--this is called a hernia…ted disc.

The advantage of a lump sum settlement is that one does not have to pay tax on it. The money has already been paid, so there is no worry about arrears.
A: You need to describe your symptoms specifically. B: Best to go and see a doctor - personal examination is much better than trying long-distance diagnosis. It feels like th…ree or four disks have slipped in my lower back, I can feel the bumps. I also have scoliosis
I have a disc in my back with a nerve hitting against it and i have to have an operation .. How safe is this and how long are you in hospital??
In my experience, the herniated disks get ignored by the rheumatologist. It is considered "mechanical" rather than inflammatory. I find this to be extremely frustrating!
"All surgery should be taken with caution. A herniated disc is not an uncommon surgery. It should be discussed with your doctor as age, health and symptoms are important facto…rs."
There are four different surgeries to choose from to fix a herniated disc. A discectomy removes the herniated disk from the spinal canal. The surgery takes about an hour. The… patient lies on his or her stomach for the procedure.
