Back injuries are amongst the most common injuries to be suffered after a slip, trip or fall, and spinal and back injuries don’t always just lead to back pain. Injuries to the lower spine or a herniated disc could press on nerves in the spine and groin, causing leg, hip and groin pain. If you’re suffering from this type of pain it can often be difficult to diagnose and you may need to have scans or an x-ray so that medical professionals can determine what is wrong.
A back injury can be debilitating, meaning months off work and leaving you in considerable pain – but you could claim personal injury compensation if somebody else is to blame for your accident. Accident Advice Helpline has over 15 years’ experience helping people to claim compensation, and we could help you too.
Has your back injury with leg pain left you unable to work?
If a back injury with leg pain has left you unable to work then your finances may be suffering. Worrying about how you’ll cover your rent or mortgage and other household bills is the last thing anybody needs after an accident, but it can often happen. If this has happened to you then you don’t need to worry. You could make a claim for personal injury compensation provided it’s been three years or less since your accident, and you could be compensated not only for your pain and suffering but also for your loss of earnings, which can help you out financially.
Even if you have suffered a minor back injury which has caused leg pain, you could still be entitled to compensation for your lost wages. Whether you’ve been injured in an accident at work, in a public place or even a road traffic accident, you could claim compensation if somebody else is to blame.
