    How to claim coccyx injury compensation

    How to claim coccyx injury compensation

    The coccyx or tailbone is a triangular bone at the base of the spine, made up of three to five bony segments linked by ligaments and joints. Women are more prone to tailbone injuries than men, as the area is more exposed due to a wider pelvis. If you’ve suffered a coccyx injury, whether due to a fall from height or a blow to your tailbone, why not consider claiming coccyx injury compensation? Trust your claim to Accident Advice Helpline and you could be compensated for your pain, suffering and loss of earnings, provided it has been three years or less since your accident.

    Common causes of coccyx injuries

    How do coccyx injuries happen? Since 2000, we have helped hundreds of customers claim coccyx injury compensation, and the most common causes for injuries include:

    • A direct blow to the lower back or tailbone area
    • Spinal injuries
    • Childbirth
    • A fall onto the tailbone

    Not sure if you’ve injured your coccyx? Signs can include bruising, pain and tenderness – particularly when sitting down, and painful bowel movements. It’s rare that you’ll need to go to hospital if you have injured your tailbone, and most injuries can be treated at home (after seeing your GP for an assessment) with ice and painkillers; eating more fibre can also help to avoid constipation. Most injuries heal within a few weeks, but in rare cases, chronic pain may require medical or surgical referral.

    Who’s to blame?

    If you have fallen from a faulty ladder at work, been struck by tools falling from scaffolding or even suffered injuries in a car crash, who is to blame for your accident? Well, if the ladder you were using at work was faulty, negligence has occurred and your employer could be held liable for your injuries. If you’ve been hit by a speeding driver or somebody who wasn’t paying attention to the road, you could claim personal injury compensation for your coccyx injury and any other injuries you’ve sustained.

    You shouldn’t suffer just because somebody else has been negligent, and Accident Advice Helpline is here to make sure you are compensated.
