Accident Advice Helpline is here to help you get compensation for any expenses you accrued as a result of your injuries on a no win no fee* basis.
Claiming injury compensation for spinal damage
It doesn’t matter how you received your injury, we can help. Here are just some of the types of cases we’ve successfully won for people with spinal injury claims:
– Accident at work
The most common claims in the work place happen where people have fallen from a height, for example from an unstable ladder. It’s your employer’s responsibility to ensure that the environment you work in is health and safety checked. If your injuries were a result of negligence, you could be entitled to compensation.
– Road traffic accident
This is the most common place that spinal injuries occur. If another driver has crashed into you, even at low speeds, this can cause damage to your head, neck and spine very easily. It’s important to take down details of the accident and any witness to your collision. It is also very useful if you can take photographs at the scene to be used as evidence later on.
– Slips, trips and falls
You may have tripped on an uneven pavement, fallen down an uncovered hole or slipped on an icy surface. If you fell onto your back, you are likely to have caused an injury to your spine. As long as this happened in the last 3 years, you could be entitled to make a claim.
The most important thing you must do to claim for compensation is to seek medical assistance as soon as possible after your accident. Whether you see a GP or have to be admitted to hospital, spinal injury claims rely on the notes from your medical appointments to build a case for compensation.
Some of the common symptoms of a spinal injury include pain in the back, stiffness and being unable to move your back. Spinal injury claims vary in severity – you may have been taken to hospital on a board to closely check your injuries, or you may not have realised that you had injured your spine until a few days after the accident. Whatever the case, the important thing is to check with a medical professional as soon as you experience any pain or discomfort.
