The last thing you expect when you suffer a back injury in an accident at work or in a public place is to be left with pain or numbness in your leg. But it seems as if a back injury with leg numbness is actually pretty common, caused when the nerves in the spine are pressed on, often by a herniated disc. This can cause pain or numbness in the leg or groin that can make it difficult to go to work, play sports or participate in your usual activities.
However, the good news is that if somebody else is responsible for your accident, you could make a claim for compensation by contacting a personal injury lawyer within three years of your accident.
Are you unable to work after suffering a back injury with leg numbness?
A back injury with leg numbness can make it difficult for you to work, particularly if you are employed in manual labour or in a role where you are standing for long periods of time. If you’re unable to go to work, your finances could be affected which can put your family under financial stress at an already difficult time.
Accident Advice Helpline doesn’t believe anybody should have to suffer financially after an accident that was somebody else’s fault, which is why our lawyers work on a 100% no-win, no-fee* basis. This means that anybody can afford to make a claim with us as there are no upfront legal fees to worry about – your fees are deducted from your settlement if your claim is successful.
Should you claim compensation?

It might be that your employer didn’t provide you with manual handling training, or maybe you were injured in a road traffic accident caused by a drunk or speeding driver. Whatever has happened, and whoever is to blame for your accident and injuries, we can help you to get the compensation you are entitled to.
