You have injured your back at work, through no fault of your own. You are suffering pain and distress because of your injury and now you are wondering:
Can I claim for a back injury from work?
By law, employers are responsible for the health and safety of their employees while at work or carrying out work-related duties. For this reason, most (but not all) employers are required by law to pay for Employer’s Liability Insurance. This Employer’s Liability Insurance covers the employer for personal injury claims if someone has an accident at work.
So, if within the past three years you had an accident at work and the accident was not your fault, you can claim on Employer’s Liability Insurance.
I hurt my back at work, why should I claim compensation?
Although the compensation cannot take away the injury, it can help you cope with the aftermath – covering any costs you and your family may have incurred due to your injury. However, the claim process may also have a beneficial effect on the health and safety of your workplace. This is because your accident will have shone a light on any safety issues and will spur on your employer to make sure that the work environment is as safe as possible for you and for your work colleagues.
So instead of wondering ‘Can I claim for a back injury from work?’ remember that claiming for compensation can benefit not only you, but other people as well.
