    Claiming for a back injury with nerve damage


    When you damage your back you may suffer from nerve damage and have problems moving around. You may need to take time off from work and be feeling frustrated that you cannot carry out your life as normal. If your back injury with nerve damage is the result of someone else’s negligence then you should find out about your right to compensation. Accident Advice Helpline can offer you free support and guidance. If you have a claim to be made, we can help you get the compensation you deserve.

    Types of back injury

    There are two main types of back injury which a victim may be suffering from after an accident. Spondylolisthesis occurs after a vertebra “slips” or fractures and Cervical Radiculopathy is the result of damage to the nerves in the spine which can happen if vertebrae get compressed. Damage to the nerves can result in pain and weakness. Victims may also suffer numbness or tingling sensation in the neck, arms or shoulders.

    How can compensation help for a back injury with nerve damage?

    Compensation may not be something you had previously considered but if the accident which caused your health problems was not your fault and it has had a negative effect on your personal well-being and finances, why shouldn’t you be compensated?

    Compensation may help with the emotional turmoil you have experienced and it could be used towards further treatment which could help your pain. You may have experienced a loss of earnings and had to pay for private treatments and compensation could reimburse you.

    Can you make a claim?

    To find out if you are eligible for compensation you can call our team over the phone. We can offer you helpful advice and there is no obligation to make a claim when you make an enquiry.

    In order to qualify for compensation your accident must have happened in the last three years and you will have to have seen a doctor or other medical professional about your injuries which were sustained from your accident. If we find that someone else is to blame for your accident, you could receive a large settlement.
