Back injuries can lead to all kinds of symptoms. The spine protects the spinal column, and while it is rare to damage this, any injury to the spine or the muscles and other structures around it can lead to severe back pain. The combination of a back injury and nausea is not an unusual one – pain alone can be enough to cause a person to feel sick. However, it can also point to more serious injuries that could require treatment.
The team working for Accident Advice Helpline has come across people with back injuries who have experienced nausea and a range of other symptoms as well. Finding out the cause of the back injury is the most important thing for us, because this helps us determine whether the injured person could win compensation for what happened to them.
Can you claim for a back injury and nausea?
It is possible to claim in cases where negligence is proven against another party. For example, if someone fell at work and injured their back, and the employer is found to have neglected their health and safety duties, a claim could potentially be made. Thankfully, such things are rare and most employers do all they can to go above and beyond the minimum that is required of them.
Of course, back injuries can occur in other ways, too. A fall on a slippery surface, perhaps in an iced-over car park that should have been gritted, could lead to a back injury. A pedestrian struck by a car could injure their back, as could someone who is in a high-speed car accident. There are other examples that could be given here too – one of which could apply to you.
Finding out more about the possibility of claiming
The good news is we are here to provide advice if you’re suffering from back injury and nausea. Even if you’ve now made a full recovery, you could still have time to claim if the injury happened in the last three years.
