    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Solicitors in Swiss Cottage


    If you sustain a back injury at work, when you work in a fairly physical job, it is natural to put this down to simply working in the type of job where this is commonplace. However, if you are used to working in a physical job, and only really have the training for this, a back injury can seriously threaten your ability to get back to work, and may cause you financial problems for quite a long time after the injury.

    The best way for you to get back on your feet financially after a back injury at work is to find solicitors in Swiss Cottage and make a compensation claim against your employer. You can only do this if you can prove that your employer was actually at fault for your accident though, so here are some of the reasons that you may not be at fault for your own accident.

    If you weren’t trained properly

    To save time and money, many employers will try to force you to get to work before you have had adequate training in your job. Even though much of it may seem like common sense and logic, if you are not trained in this type of job, there may be easy mistakes to make which you will simply not know enough about to avoid. Training is crucial in any physical job to avoid injury, so without it you should be able to make a claim for compensation. 

    If you weren’t given the help you needed

    If you really needed to be working with another person to lift something or work with something heavy, then your employer is at fault if you are injured because you were working alone. Unless you were specifically instructed to work with another person and ignored these instructions, your employer should have done what they could to ensure that you were not handling this project on your own.
