Self-help for sore backs
Moving house, playing footie with the grandkids and clearing out your garage all have the same effect – they can play havoc with your back! Here’s a fast fix solution for dealing with sore and tired backs:
- Borrow a tennis ball from your grandchildren and sit relaxed in a straight-backed chair with your feet planted firmly on the ground;
- Place the tennis ball on any sore spots on your back and lean into the chair, resting your back on the ball;
- Inhale deeply ten times and relax; and
- Repeat this exercise a few times until your back begins to feel better.
Sadly, not all back problems are dealt with quite so easily. If you suffered a back injury in an accident at work and your accident was entirely down to your employer’s negligence, you must make a claim for compensation to get justice and be recompensed.
Not every accident solicitor in Canonbie will wish to take on your claim on a no win no fee* basis if your work-related accident is not a straightforward case. Were you partly to blame by ignoring warnings about lifting excess weight? Did you ignore warning signs about slippery surfaces? When your accident solicitor writes to the negligent party outlining the reasons why you think you are not to blame for your accident and what injuries you suffered as a result of your employer’s negligence, you must be able to prove your case.
What information do I supply to an accident solicitor in Canonbie or other legal specialist?
Your accident solicitor in Canonbie needs to have the names and contact details of the people involved in your accident and that includes names of potential witnesses. They will also need documentation outlining your injuries, such as medical diagnosis and subsequent treatment. If you have paid bills for private medical treatment or any other expenses that were the direct result of your accident, your accident solicitor in Canonbie or other specialist will include them in your claim. You must also provide proof of loss of income, if you wish to claim compensation for it.
