    If you suffered a back injury at work, what to do next


    Many of us will suffer some pain in our backs from time to time and we may need to rest, take gentle exercise or time off from strenuous exercise. However, you may have been unlucky enough to sustain a back injury at work after an accident. If the accident was not your fault and you feel someone else was to blame, we would like to offer you advice and support about your next steps.

    How can a back injury affect your life?

    Back injuries can limit your mobility so you may find that you are unable to work or even leave the house for long periods of time. You may find certain positions uncomfortable like standing or sitting.

    If you have a back injury you may require surgery, physiotherapy or need to regularly see a chiropractor you may need to rely on pain relief and you may even be suffering from mental health problems such as depression because of the impact your back injury has had on your life.

    Can I claim for my back injury at work?

    Making a claim for compensation for your back injury is simple with Accident Advice Helpline. Our advisors will be able to tell you over the phone whether you qualify. To be eligible to claim your accident must not have been your fault and it must have happened within the last three years. Your injuries must have been looked at by a doctor or other medical professional and there needs to be a case for negligence.

    If you do qualify for compensation and you decide to let us proceed with your case on your behalf, you can rest assured that we will do our utmost to get you the compensation you deserve. We will take into consideration all the details before making your case, such as whether your employer paid you for time off from work and how badly your injuries have affected your emotional and physical well-being.
