Back injuries at work – has your employer been negligent?
Accidents happen, but when they happen in the workplace, they need to be investigated fully. Take back injuries at work for example. A large percentage of these accidents could have been avoided if the right health and safety provisions were in place. If you have suffered an injury of this type, you could sue your employer for negligence and receive compensation that reflects the pain and suffering you are experiencing.
Back injuries can be one of the most complex and varied injuries. We have dealt with many back injuries at work over the years, including the following:
- Soft tissues injuries
- Ligament and tendon damage
- Pulled muscles
- Prolapsed discs
