If you work in an office, shop or hotel with stairs, you probably rush up and down them multiple times a day without any thoughts about personal safety. But you’d be surprised at the number of people injured each year on stairs at work – and the number of claims we have handled for a back injury after a fall down stairs. You may have fallen as a result of damaged flooring or treads on the stairs, a faulty hand rail or a spillage on the floor that caused you to slip and fall.
Whatever has happened, if your employer is to blame then Accident Advice Helpline can help you to make a 100% no-win, no-fee claim for personal injury compensation, provided it has been three years or less since your accident.
How serious is your back injury after a fall down stairs?
It may be that you have suffered a slipped disc or another type of back injury that will require medical treatment and possibly surgery. A back injury after a fall down stairs doesn’t necessarily need to be serious though. You may have suffered a minor injury to your upper or lower back resulting in pain that requires time off work and physiotherapy to heal. Taking time off can affect you and your family financially – and why should you have to suffer if your employer has been negligent? You could make a claim for personal injury compensation which will take into account your pain, suffering and financial losses, helping you out financially after your accident at work.
How common are back injuries?
Back injuries after a slip and fall are surprisingly common, and they can range from minor to severe. Even if you’ve suffered a more minor injury, Accident Advice Helpline believes you are entitled to compensation, if somebody else is at fault. It might be that you’re not sure who is to blame for your accident – so get in touch with us to find out.
