Millions of people suffer from backache for one reason or another. However very few of those millions of people have backache resulting from a road accident. It is however more than possible for an accident like this to cause a back injury.
This holds true whether you are a pedestrian and you are struck by a vehicle, or whether you are a driver who has been struck by another vehicle that didn’t stop for some reason.
The speed at which a road accident can occur might also have a bearing on the severity of the injuries suffered. Whenever a back injury is suspected the greatest care must be taken not to move the injured person prior to medical assistance arriving. If this happened it could make an injury even worse.
Are you wondering whether road accident back injury compensation might be payable?
It’s fair enough to consider whether this might be true for you. There are experienced lawyers who specialise in this type of compensation claim. They will know whether there is enough evidence pointing to negligence on the part of someone else who was involved in the accident.
From your point of view, it doesn’t matter whether you were the driver, passenger or even a pedestrian or cyclist. If someone else caused you to suffer a back injury you may have a chance to claim some compensation.
A back injury caused in this way could cause you to have ongoing problems long into the future. It’s not always a case of simply recovering from the initial injury. It may not always be possible to do so. For example you might trap a nerve that causes you pain in your legs for the foreseeable future and perhaps keeps you up at night. This would certainly affect many areas of your life.
