    I hurt my back at work, can I sue


    We are often asked – I hurt my back at work, can I sue

    Back injuries are amongst the most common injuries to be sustained in accidents at work, and if you have suffered a back injury, you might wonder if you could claim compensation. Accident Advice Helpline frequently hears people asking, I hurt my back at work, can I sue and the answer is yes, if somebody else caused your accident then you can make a claim for personal injury compensation.

    Many people worry that they will end up losing their jobs if they claim compensation from their employer but this couldn’t be further from the truth. Employers have liability insurance in place which will pay out if you make a successful claim for personal injury compensation.

    Living with back pain after an accident

    The truth is that back pain can be debilitating and painful, and if you have suffered a back injury then you might find you’re unable to work or live your life to the full. You may have suffered a minor injury to your lower back or a more serious injury such as a slipped disc that requires surgery. Whatever has happened, you might want to find a personal injury lawyer and ask them, I hurt my back at work, can I sue. The answer will normally be yes, if your employer could have done more to prevent your accident from happening.

    Maybe you fell from scaffolding and injured your back or perhaps you slipped on a wet floor and have suffered a serious back injury. Whether your injuries are minor or serious you could find yourself entitled to compensation that could help you out financially until you’re well enough to go back to work.
