    Compensation for car accident back injuries


    Our backs are complex networks of tendons, muscles, bones, ligaments and soft tissue, and when you suffer car accident back injuries, they can be difficult to diagnose.

    That’s because there are so many different injuries that could affect your back, and they can have a knock-on effect on your mobility, your shoulders, your arms, neck, head and torso.

    Back pain can manifest itself as aches and pains in other parts of the body, such as a dull headache or pain in the neck.

    If you’ve suffered car accident back injuries, you’ll know how debilitating they can be and just how much they can ruin your enjoyment of life.

    From not being able to play with the kids to being forced to cut your shifts back at work because you can’t stand or sit still for too long, back pain can be a real, well, pain.

    How do back injuries occur?

    One of the most common causes for car accident back injuries is being rear-ended by another car. The sudden jolt forwards and backwards has the potential to cause injuries to the neck (whiplash), back and shoulders.

    Back pain may not be evident until a few hours after your accident, and it’s important to be assessed by a doctor to make sure nothing is broken or seriously damaged.

    Torn tendons or ruptured ligaments may require physiotherapy or even surgery in order to make a full recovery. Chronic back pain could continue for months after your accident, affecting your quality of life and ability to carry out simple day-to-day tasks.

    Claiming personal injury compensation with Accident Advice Helpline means you’re putting your claim in experienced hands – we have dealt with hundreds of similar claims since we opened in 2000 and we know how much back injuries can impact your life, so we’ll make sure you get the compensation you deserve.

    Our personal injury lawyers care about our customers – we offer excellent customer service and work on a 100% no win, no fee basis, so that’s one less stress.

    Recovering from your injuries

    Recovering after suffering a back injury is obviously your main priority, but once you start to feel better, think about making a claim for personal injury compensation within three years of your accident – you could receive a settlement which helps you pay those physiotherapy costs or other household expenses.
