Lawyers in Poole


Whether you work in an office, or in a labour, or manufacturing based role, a back injury can occur at any time. However, if the back injury resulted in an accident that wasn’t your fault, you may be able to claim personal injury compensation.

Below are some tips on what you should do if you suffer a back injury at work as well as how to make a claim for compensation with a lawyer.

Seek medical attention

It is important if you suffer a back injury that you seek immediate medical attention and that you don’t continue working. If you continue with work activities without seeking treatment, you may make the injury worse. A doctor will be able to advise you on the severity of the injury as well as advise you on treatment and whether or not you will need to take time off work.

Take it easy with your recovery

Don’t rush back into work until you are ready. You’ll want to ensure that you are fully recovered and have taken steps with your employer to ensure that you aren’t likely to suffer a repeat injury and that you are able to work comfortably. Consider working reduced hours or flexible working until you get back into the swing of things.

What to do if the accident wasn’t your fault?

If you suffer a back injury, or any injury at work that wasn’t your fault, you could be entitled to compensation. If your employer failed to follow health and safety regulations or there was a problem with equipment, then they should have taken steps to prevent it. In this case, you should consult a lawyer to discuss your options.
