Back Injury Claims

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. A back injury can have a devastating effect to a person’s ordinary lifestyle.

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.

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.

If you have any legal questions or wish to start your claim, please do not hesitate to contact our dedicated and experienced team of solicitors who will be more than happy to talk you through the whole process and answer any questions that you may have. You have two years from the date of your surgery within which to make a claim after which time your case will become statute barred.
