Different types of back injuries caused by accidents
Back injuries are one of the most common types of injuries caused by slips, trips and falls, as well as car accidents and more in Mitcheldean. Those who suffer back injuries may need to consult with a lawyer in Mitcheldean in order to seek compensation due to an accident that wasn’t their fault. We outline the different types of back injuries below.
Lower back pain
Lower back pain is a common injury caused by accidents and can lead to a lot of discomfort for the sufferer. Whilst it may make sense to rest for a while, the longer you leave it before trying to get mobile again the worse it may be. However, if you work in a job which requires you to be mobile or perform physical activity, lower back pain could cause issues that could mean that you’re out of work. If the accident wasn’t your fault, you could discuss compensation with a lawyer in Mitcheldean.
Heavy lifting, sudden movements and other factors can contribute to slipped disks, and if you suffer one as a result of negligence from an employer or someone else then it can be a cause to seek advice from a lawyer in Mitcheldean, especially if there is a loss of earnings caused by this accident. Slipped disks are painful and may require surgery, and therefore can be a serious injury which requires a lengthy rehabilitation period.
Whiplash is a common injury found in road traffic accident victims. Caused by a sudden moving of the neck, it can be painful and limit movement, as well as causing other symptoms such as headaches. Whilst whiplash is common, it can still require treatment which will lead to time off work. If your company doesn’t provide you with sick leave, you could be out of pocket, which is unfair if the accident wasn’t your fault. If you have been involved in a car accident and suffered whiplash, contact a lawyer in Mitcheldean.
