Spinal & Back Injury Claims
Spinal injuries can be particularly devastating and debilitating. If you have suffered a spinal injury it may result in some form of paralysis. A spinal injury depending on its severity can be a life altering event and can carry serious implications for the sufferer. Spinal injuries can be utterly traumatic for the sufferer and can be even more so if as a result of someone else’s negligence.
Spinal injuries are categorised as serious injuries and any compensation awarded will reflect the severity of the damage caused. The award will of course never compensate for the devastating effect the injury will have but it will go to provide some form of recompense.
Back injuries are extremely common and are caused mostly by the twisting and turning or lifting of a heavy weight during manual labour. If you have suffered a back injury through the negligence of another be it in a public place or in the work please please read our checklist of what to do in the respective page of this site. If another party for example an employer is responsible for your back injury through a lack of manual handling education or by providing improper equipment then you may be entitled to compensation.
Examples Of Common Back Injuries
- Bulging discs resulting in sharp sudden and continuous nerve pain
- Muscle strains
- Ligament tears
- Referred nerve pain down through the legs
If you have suffered a back injury and are in pain through the negligence of another you may be entitled to compensation.
