Can anyone share experience on how much maximum disability one can get from the Herniated Disc at L5S1 level ,I know it is hypothetical but want to know what and how i have to look for my family and self?
I don't know what state you are in but every state has their own formula. You can look it up on the web for your state. I know here in Mo your dr gives you a rating and then if you have an attorney they usually send you to one of their drs for a rating. When all that is done your attorney fights it out in court. I know here in Mo they do not consider pain and suffering.
It depends on the level of nerve compression. When I had my herniated disc, it was so large that I could barely take a step without crying out in pain. The nerve compression was such that it literally felt like my shin would split in two everytime I took a step. However, everyone's case is different, so it really is a case by case thing!
