    Everybody moans about feeling the odd twinge and most people will suffer minor back injuries at times in their life. But constant and debilitating back pain is a horrible thing to have to bear.

    What causes serious back pain?

    Back injuries can range from crushed vertebrae to torn ligaments, herniated discs to fractures of the spine. Lower back pain is often caused by incorrect lifting methods. Victims can feel acute or chronic pain, numbness or muscle weakness in the affected area. This can sometimes lead to further damage

    The result

    If you are suffering, then your quality of life is likely to be reduced; you may be unable to work or carry out normal day-to-day activities. This is painful for the person concerned and often frustrating for both them and their family.

    How do back injuries happen?

    There are a variety of causes – from road traffic accidents, slips, trips and falls, accidents at work, in the home or at play. In some cases, there may even be medical negligence involved. Another possibility is that you could suffer a repetitive strain injury whilst working.

    Why you should consult a back injury solicitor

    Generally, you can claim if you have had an accident, or the injury is caused by someone else. The cause needs to have occurred within the last three years – and you should have sought medical attention. It’s vital to put the facts to a back injury solicitor as soon as possible. You can talk to our friendly and professional advisers in confidence and then decide if you wish to go ahead and make a claim.
