An accident solicitor in Yetholm can help you get compensation for your suffering and potential loss of income if your injury was someone else’s fault.

    If your accident or injury occurred during the last three years, one of our expert accident solicitors is here to help. Simply call Accident Advice Helpline at any time of the day, and one of our expert advisers will assess your circumstances.

    Slipped discs

    While many people use the term ‘slipped disc’, medical professionals will usually refer to the condition as a prolapsed or herniated disc. A slipped disc can occur as a result of bad posture at work, repetitive motion or a sudden trauma – and the effects can be excruciating. The condition is caused by a protruding or ruptured spinal disc that is exerting pressure on the surrounding nerves.

    Fractured or broken vertebrae

    A broken back is usually the result of a severe impact or fall. Such an injury will be suspected if the person loses sensation in any of the limbs, or in some cases a tingling sensation can be a tell-tale sign of a spinal fracture. A commonly suffered injury caused by falling at work is a broken coccyx, which is located at the bottom of the spine.

    Soft tissue back injuries

    These are the most common form of back injuries, and they can result from either a sudden impact or fall. However, they can also be the result of poor posture – caused by a range of issues such as a poor seating position at work. The pain related to soft tissue back injuries can be extreme, and it leads to thousands of lost work hours in the UK every year.
