Claiming for your back injury in Kippford

Under what circumstances would someone be eligible to make a compensation claim for a back injury? By far and away the greatest number of back injuries occur at work, and thousands of working days are lost every year from chronic or acute back pain. A very common injury is a slipped disc.

The discs are “cushions” of soft tissue between each vertebra. When the back is subjected to trauma, from a severe impact, or from attempting to lift items which are too heavy, the disc can swell, or even rupture, and this is what causes the pain and immobility. A badly swollen disc puts pressure on the sciatic nerve, which runs down the leg, hence the painful condition known as sciatica.

All kinds of workers risk back injury on a daily basis: delivery drivers, postal workers, warehouse workers, workers in construction, shipyards, heavy engineering, and baggage handlers.

Many employers take care to train their staff how to lift items properly, and provide lifting gear and equipment where appropriate. However, if you or someone you know has suffered a back injury from working in conditions where safety regulations were not properly enforced, there could be a case for compensation to be made.
