Back and spine injuries are among the most common types of injuries that people get. Perhaps this is because there’s so many different ways that someone can injure their back in their day-to-day lives.
Below are some of the common ways that people injured their backs or spines and why they seek compensation for their spine injuries.
People often seek compensation for spine injuries from car accidents
One of the most common reasons that people get back or spine injuries is because they have been in a car accident. A very common type of spine injury is whiplash. This is where a person’s spine or neck has been injured because the head was thrown backwards and then forwards during the car crash. As well as whiplash, a lot of people experience injuries to their mid and lower back when they have been in a part accident.
People often seek compensation for an injured back from workplace accidents
Another reason that people get back injuries is when they are injured at work. One of the most common reasons for back injuries at work is because people are lifting heavy items, although back injuries from slipping and falling at work are also common. Back injuries at work often the two workmen’s compensation claims against the person’s employer.
People often seek compensation for back injuries from medical negligence
It’s sad to say, but a lot of times people have back injuries because someone messed up an operation that they had. Spine operations are extremely complicated, and when operations are performed incorrectly it can leave the person in a worse situation than they were before they had the operation. These kinds of back injuries often lead to medical negligence claims against the doctors and hospitals that they trusted to give them the best care they could.
People often seek compensation for back injuries due to sports
It’s not uncommon for people to be injured while they are playing sports or participating in sports. A common type of sport that results in back injuries is horseback riding. When someone is thrown from the horse that they are riding, it can lead to a bad back injury that can even leave them paralysed.
People often seek compensation for an injured back due to assault
Sometimes when someone assaults another person, one of the results is that they have injuries to their back. These kinds of injuries can vary from being mild to being paralysing.
