Injuring your back is no laughing matter. Because your back connects your neck, shoulders and limbs to the rest of your torso, a back injury can leave you unable to move, work or enjoy life. Some back injuries can be so serious that surgery may be required and in the case of a spinal injury, you may even be left permanently disabled.
Luckily, injured back compensation can be claimed if your accident was somebody else’s fault, whether you’ve been injured at work, in a public place or even as the result of a faulty product at home. Accident Advice Helpline has spent these many years helping customers claim injured back compensation, so take advantage of our 100% no win, no fee* service and find out if you’re eligible to make a claim.
Serious back injuries
It could be that you have torn or ruptured a ligament or muscle in your back, slipped a disc or even suffered a serious spinal injury. Life-changing back injuries could result in permanent disability, meaning you’re confined to a wheelchair, or your mobility could be affected and you could find yourself unable to return to work. Here are just a few examples of the types of accidents which could cause a serious back injury:
- Fall from scaffolding on a construction site
- Car accident
- Fall from height (such as a roof or ladder) at work
- Slipping on a wet floor
- Falling down stairs
- Tripping over loose cables or wires in an office
- Crush injuries caused by a building or pavement collapse
- Tripping and falling on an uneven pavement or floor
Should you make a claim?
Serious back injuries (or even more minor ones) could mean taking time off work to recover, affecting you and your loved ones financially. If this has happened to you and your employer or somebody else is responsible for your accident, why shouldn’t you claim the compensation you deserve? You shouldn’t have to suffer in silence after a construction accident or slip, trip or fall that has left you with a back injury.
