    Continuous Lower Back Pain


    Accident Advice Helpline has observed through reports that the number of accidents on roads, slips, trips and falls are increasing rapidly. Victims mostly experience continuous lower back pain; hence, AAH has decided to help victims successfully make Personal Injury Claims.

    The following are a few tips by AAH for victims who wish to claim personal injuries:

    1. Write everything down

    To begin with, it is important for the victim to gather as much information as possible. This may include the names and addresses of all those who were involved, including any witnesses. Keeping a note of the details and symptoms of the continuous lower back pain along with the medical appointments attended, diagnosis and prescribed medication will help in pursuing personal injury claims.

    2. Take photos where possible

    With so many people owning mobile phones with cameras on board these days, it is easier than ever for people to snap a picture of the situation as it happens. As a picture says a thousand words and never has that been truer than in the world of personal injury claims law, a photograph of a vehicle collision or a poorly maintained pavement that caused a trip which injured the person pretty roughly and left him with a continuous back pain could be good evidence to support their case.

    3. Keep everything in a folder or file

    One of the things Accident Advice Helpline recommends to its clients is to keep everything in a file or folder. Not only does this make the process easier, it also keeps you organized. Even if the victim doesn’t file things in any sort of order, just having all the necessary paperwork in one place will inevitably take the stress out of making a claim.

    4. Prove it

    Being injured in an accident has much further reaching consequences than one might think. The immediate implications of lower back pain due to the accident  could be not being able to work or drive. However, a personal injury claim simply cannot state that the victim has done this or that; it is better if you can prove it. Claimants can help with this process by keeping receipts; invoices, bank statements or anything they think will help to calculate the total costs involved in their case. 

    5. Get Expert Advice

    Accident Advice Helpline offer free expert advice so you can discuss your case in detail with no obligation and find out about the process of claiming. They will ensure that you are introduced to an experienced 100% no win no fee solicitor who is a specialist in personal injury law. Our expert solicitors have years of experience in dealing with all manner of personal injury claims e.g. continuous lower back pain.

    6. Settle early where possible

    When a solicitor has had a chance to contact the defendant and they have admitted liability, they will usually be able to give an indication of roughly how much they think the claim is worth. This means the claimant will get paid faster and that a good deal of stress will be taken out of the process, leaving the victim of the accident in peace to concentrate on their recovery from injuries like continuous lower back pain. By following the advice offered here by the Accident Advice Helpline, the claims will be processed faster and the compensation amounts will generally be higher.
