What is the Average Settlement for a Bulging Disc After a Car Accident?

Average Settlements for Bulging Discs in Car Accidents | 24/7 Support

There is no average settlement for a bulging disc after a car accident. One reason for this is that the outcomes of many personal injury cases are confidential. Another reason is that the value of your specific case will depend on the facts of your situation.

Our law firm can calculate the cost of your past, present, and future accident-related losses and determine what a fair settlement would look like in your case.

Compensation You Can Receive in a Car Accident Case

Here are some possible forms of compensation that you could recover after a car accident that resulted in a bulging disc:

Past and Future Medical Bills

Harvard Health Publishing says that a bulging disc can take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months to heal. During this time, you may incur the following treatment-related costs:

  • Hospitalization
  • Physical therapy
  • Medications
  • In-home nursing
  • Crutches
  • A wheelchair or a cane
  • Doctors’ visits
  • Imaging scans

Even if you have health insurance coverage, the treatment associated with a bulging disc can be expensive. Yet, do not worry about paying for these costs on your own—we can include them as part of your claim.

Past Lost Wages

Depending on the nature of your profession, you could be eligible to recover the following while you recover from your injuries:

  • Tips
  • Commissions
  • Raises
  • Bonuses
  • Employee benefits
  • Hourly wages
  • Income

If you missed out on a promotional opportunity because you were hurt, we can consider this aspect when calculating your losses.

Future Loss of Earning Capacity

A bulging disc can impede your mobility and make it difficult to attend work over the long term. If your injury will continue to affect your ability to make a living, we can use your past employment records to determine these future losses.

Past and Future Pain and Suffering

Being injured can take a toll on your mental health and quality of life. We will take into account the following details when determining the cost of your pain and suffering:

  • Your daily pain levels
  • Whether you developed anxiety, depression, or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • The nature of your injuries
  • Your expected recovery time
  • Your mobility
  • Your personal relationships

If you are unable to partake in certain activities because of your injuries, we can also take this into consideration.

Your Property Damage Costs

In addition to suffering a bulging disc in a car accident, your vehicle might also have been totaled or damaged. We can determine the cost of your property damage costs after examining the facts of your situation.

These are just some of the damages that you can recover through a personal injury claim or lawsuit. You could qualify for other types of damages depending on the nature of your collision.

Your Car Accident Case Has a Filing Deadline

To recover compensation for your losses, you must file your case within the appropriate deadline. NRS §11.190(4)(e) says that you have two years from the date of your collision to file a lawsuit. Your deadline for filing a claim will be determined by the insurance company.

If you do not file your case on time, you might:

  • Have to pay for your losses yourself
  • Lose your chance to recover compensation
  • Jeopardize the success of your claim or lawsuit

Our team can file your case on time. We can also determine whether any tolling exceptions apply to your case.

How Our Law Firm Can Help You Improve Your Chances of Success

When you partner with our team, you can expect us to:

Handle Your Insurance Claim

To advance your insurance claim, we will:

  • Handle all communications with the claims adjusters
  • Negotiate a settlement
  • Prove fault and negligence
  • Protect you against bad faith insurance practices
  • Calculate the value of your losses

The Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) says that all motorists are required to carry liability insurance. If the other party in your case was not properly insured, we can explain your legal options.

File Your Car Accident Lawsuit

If we cannot reach an agreement with the liable insurer, then we will file a lawsuit against the at-fault party. To resolve your lawsuit, we will:

  • File all necessary paperwork
  • Present decisive evidence to the judge and jury
  • Follow all courtroom protocols
  • Communicate with the involved parties
  • Exchange information with the defendant’s legal team
  • Take depositions
  • Cross-examine the other party’s witnesses

While your lawsuit evolves, we will keep negotiating with the insurer. If they decide to agree to our terms, then we will drop the lawsuit and resolve your case through that avenue.
