Back pain is something most people will suffer from to some degree at one time or another in their lives. It can crop up for all kinds of reasons. Sometimes even lifting something in the wrong way or moving in an odd manner can cause you a problem. However most of the time back pain is fleeting and untroublesome – it can even be caused by sleeping in an odd position.
Of course, while many cases of back pain are very minor, some people suffer acute back pain that goes on for some time. These cases can be caused by lots of different things. However our focus here is on back pain that is triggered by the negligence of another person.
How can negligence lead to back pain?
Negligence means someone has not done something they should have done. Perhaps someone has not paid attention on the roads and hit another car as a result. Perhaps they own a business and neglected to provide their staff members with manual handling training that could easily have prevented back injuries from occurring.
As you can see, there are lots of situations where someone could incur back pain that could affect them for some time to come. If this is the case it could have a knock-on effect in many areas of that individual’s life. Perhaps you can identify with this if you have been unlucky to suffer from an injury of this type within the last three years.
Why three years?
We mention the three-year aspect because it is within this period of time that you have the chance to make a no win, no fee* claim to see if you are due to receive any compensation for your injuries. You might end up being surprised by the outcome.
