Experienced a back injury due to the negligence of someone else?
Unfortunately back accidents are a very common type of accident and can happen to almost anyone. Our spinal cord and lumbar spine are two of the most commonly damaged areas of our backs. Firstly, the spine is incredibly intricate and delicate and can be damaged very easily. The lumbar spine is located at the lower back and tends to be the area that becomes injured through a slip, trip or fall.
If you have been injured due to the negligence of someone else, your best option is to speak to a professional adviser at Accident Advice Helpline about claiming compensation through our solicitors in Margate.
The effects of a back injury
If serious, a temporary back injury can mean that you are unable to walk, sit or lie down for anything up to a couple of months. If it is a lot more serious, sadly it has been known for people to have become paralysed or disabled. Emotionally, a serious back injury can have serious detrimental effects on your health and you may require counselling or further medical help and support.
If this is the case, you may in fact be able to claim more compensation if you have also suffered from emotional damage through the fault of someone else. In order to claim through our solicitors you must be able to provide evidence that your injuries took place within the past three years and were medically documented. As well as this, there must be valid evidence supporting that the accident was caused by someone else.
