    How to claim spondylolysis compensation


    Spondylolysis is a condition that develops when one of the vertebrae in the spine is damaged. The defect tends to be present in the lower back, but it can happen in the upper spine in uncommon cases as well.

    Some people are more prone than others to developing spondylolysis. While some sports may see professionals developing the condition, it can also occur in cases where people have performed certain movements continually over time, such as you would in sports. This might occur in the workplace if you constantly move and twist to perform your duties.

    Repeatedly straining your back

    If you perform a movement that puts stress on your lower back, you are far more likely to potentially develop spondylolysis over time. Basically this refers to an injury caused through overuse, and this can happen if you do the same thing over and over again. This can occasionally happen at work if you do repetitive tasks that put stress and strain on the joints in your back. Your employer should do everything they can to prevent something like this happening, but if this hasn’t happened in your case, compensation could be the eventual outcome in payment for the condition you now have.

    If you suspect you might be affected by this condition, it is important to see your GP as soon as possible. This will help you get evidence that might help support a claim for spondylolysis compensation if this turns out to be a possibility. Your lawyer will need to access that information to help form the basis of a potential claim if they feel you have an opportunity to make one.
