Back injuries are more common than you might think, and if you have suffered an accident at work that has left you with a back injury with groin pain, you’re not alone. Spinal injuries such as a herniated disc can pinch the nerves in the groin area, leading to groin pain or pain in your thighs, which can be quite debilitating.
If you work in a physical role (and even if you don’t), you may find you’re unable to go back to work for some time, which can have a knock-on effect on your finances. Accident Advice Helpline could help you to claim compensation if you’ve suffered an injury in an accident that was somebody else’s fault.
How severe is your back injury with groin pain?
Everybody feels pain differently, so what is debilitating for one person may be manageable for another. You’ll normally need to seek medical attention for your back injury and you may need to have an x-ray if you’re in a lot of pain. In the case of a slipped or herniated disc, surgery may be needed, which will usually be followed up by physiotherapy to restore mobility, and can include a range of exercises to carry out at home.
Suffering from a back injury with groin pain can be doubly painful and you may find it hard to sit or stand for long periods of time, making time off work a necessity rather than a choice. Luckily if somebody else is to blame for your accident, you can make a claim for compensation – you could be awarded a settlement that could compensate you for your loss of earnings, helping you out financially at a difficult time.
How do back injuries happen?
Back injuries are usually the result of:
- A slip, trip or fall
- A fall from height
- Something falling onto you from height
- Manual handling
Any of these types of accidents could happen at work or in a public place, and if somebody else is at fault, you shouldn’t need to suffer in silence. Since 2000, Accident Advice Helpline has helped hundreds of members of the public claim compensation for back injuries and accidents at work, and we could help you too.
