Back Injury Claims (sports, work and other)

There are multiple causes of back pain including; strains, trips and slips, sports injuries and injuries caused in the workplace, public place or road traffic accidents. Back or spinal injuries can be very serious, sometimes resulting in chronic pain with long term disabling effects. The spine, or backbone, is a complex structure made up of 33 bones and tissue extending from the skull to the pelvis. These bones, (vertebrae), protect the nerve tissues of the spinal cord. There are different types of vertebrae along the back. A back injury can have a devastating effect to a person’s ordinary lifestyle.

Preventing back injuries is a major workplace safety challenge. Employers are required by law to adhere to strict Health and Safety regulations. It is their duty to provide a safe working environment for all staff members in all areas of the work place inside and outside.

  • Chronic pain
  • Difficulty walking, lifting, or performing day to day tasks
  • Full or partial paralysis
  • Spondylolisthesis
  • Cervical radiculopathy
  • Fractured vertebrae
  • Herniated discs
  • Muscle strain or spasms
  • Whiplash

Work related spinal injuries can be caused by lifting, placing, carrying and holding manual materials. An accident which results in a temporary or permanent back injury can also be the result of an unsafe environment or substandard machinery or tools. If you have suffered or are suffering from a back or spinal injury due to a work related accident you may be entitled to personal injury compensation. The amount of compensation you will be entitled to will depend on:

  • The seriousness of the injury
  • Short or long term effects from the injury
  • Loss of earnings
  • Loss of potential earnings
