Back and elbow injury claims
You may be wondering if you can really claim compensation for the work-related damage you’ve sustained to your lower back. Elbow injury claims arising from car accidents can be equally worrisome. Aren’t they the sort of minor problem everyone suffers from? Surely it’s not appropriate to make a fuss?
You have a right to make reasonable back and elbow injury claims
Back and elbow injuries may well be common, but they can be serious too. An elbow injury can keep you from your work whether it involves typing academic papers or turning a lathe. Permanent damage could affect your earning power, not to mention your quality of life.
Back problems can be unpredictable. It’s safer to act when the incident has just happened or the problem first becomes apparent. Often a back strain will heal, but there’s always the danger a minor problem will develop into a major one and then you could find you’ve left it too late to claim compensation. There is a legal limit on how long after an accident you can make your compensation claim, so it makes sense to check now rather than to wait and see.
It’s also quite common to injure both of these vulnerable parts of the body at the same time in slips, trips and falls, so here at Accident Advice Helpline we have dealt with many back and elbow injury claims and won compensation for the injured party.
