    Gateshead car accident

    Make a claim for your back injury

    A car accident can lead to the onset of many injuries, especially those affecting the back.

    A back injury can range in severity, but even a minor one can cause significant pain and disruption. If you have suffered a back injury in a Gateshead car accident, you could potentially claim compensation. Provided you were not to blame for the accident, and it took place within the past three years, you could be within your rights to make a claim and potentially receive thousands of pounds in a payout from whoever was responsible.

    There are all sorts of back injuries that can arise, from torn ligaments to trapped nerves, slipped discs, fractures and of course, whiplash. It is very common for whiplash to onset in the wake of an accident, and this injury can be particularly expensive to treat, not to mention incapacitating while you recover.

    More serious accidents can lead to serious and often permanent damage, resulting in either full or partial paralysis. Many victims that have suffered a back injury report chronic back pain afterwards, sometimes for the rest of their lives. If you have been made to live with all of this because of someone else’s actions, don’t settle for doing so without adequate financial compensation.
