A back injury can be life changing. There could be several ways that you may receive a back injury – maybe from slipping or falling in an incident that wasn’t your fault. You may also suffer chronic back pain and injury as a result of not being trained properly in manual lifting.
Or you may have received an injury to your back as a result of a car accident. No matter how you received your back injury, if you sustained it as a result of an accident or incident that wasn’t your fault then you could have a back injury compensation claim!
How much compensation for back injury could I claim?
The amount you could claim will vary depending on the severity of your back injury, along with the impact of you injury on your life, both in the long and short term. Essentially, you need to know if you have an eligible claim. Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we do this by introducing you to our ’30 second test’.
You can take the test either by phoning us or by taking the assessment test on our website. It may sound daunting but there’s no need to worry! We guarantee that you’ll know immediately if you have an eligible claim for your back injury.
How much compensation for back injury will you claim back for me?
Again, without knowing details of your back injury and accident, that’s impossible to answer. As soon as our ’30 second test’ indicates that you have an eligible claim, it will be your decision as to whether you decide to continue with your compensation claim.
If you do, then you’ll be put in touch with a solicitor who specialises in back injury compensation claims. Our solicitors are independent of Accident Advice Helpline, meaning you can be confident of the best legal service for you. Your legal team will advise you with honesty and impartiality in claiming compensation.
How much compensation for back injury will be mine?
All of it! We, along with your solicitor, will work on a ‘no win no fee*’ basis meaning any compensation you win is all yours, all 100% of it.
Back injury can vary from painful pulled muscles to spinal problems, that may involve surgery or other specialist treatment such as visits to chiropractors, physiotherapists, pain management clinics or other forms of medical treatments.
We also find that many back injury compensation claims by people also involve large claims for prescription drugs; one or two items, charged per item over several months can soon add up!
Keep any receipts and give these to your solicitor as there are two parts to your compensation claim: compensation for your actual back injury AND compensation payment to cover any additional costs such as prescriptions, travel expenses, help around the home, adaptations to your home etc.
