Your back is very precious, and also very delicate. Made up of 24 bones, discs and ligaments, it is exceptionally easy to injure. If you have been involved in an accident which has resulted in a back injury then you could contact an injury lawyer in West Malling.
Accidents which can cause back injuries
Of course there are a number of scenarios which may lead to an injured back, and it would be impossible to list them all.
Road traffic accidents (or road traffic collisions) account for a large number of back injuries sustained over the year. You may have been the passenger in a vehicle, the driver of a vehicle that was hit by a third party, a cyclist or even a pedestrian. If you have been involved in some form of RTA that was not your fault, and you have sustained an injury to your back, then you would be able to call an injury lawyer in West Malling.
You can also seriously injure your back whilst carrying or lifting heavy objects. Not all cases of injury whilst carrying something heavy will result in a successful compensation claim with an injury lawyer in West Malling; however, if you have suffered this sort of injury whilst at work and were not given the appropriate training or support to lift the object in question, you might be able to make a claim for compensation based on your employers negligence.
You might even injure your back if you have had a slip, trip or fall. This could occur in any public place or building and might occur at your place of work.Open Claim Calculator
How do I know if I have a claim?
You can easily find out if you will be able to make a compensation through an injury lawyer in West Malling or Accident Advice Helpline by taking our 30 second test. This test will establish the validity of your claim, and will also give you a good idea of how much your claim could be worth.
When dealing with a claim, we need to establish three things:
- That the accident which occurred was someone else’s fault.
- That the accident resulted in some form of injury to yourself which has had an impact on your life.
- That the accident (or the presenting symptoms of the injury) happened within the last three years.
If the answer to all of these questions is “yes” then chances are you have a great chance of succeeding with your claim.
