With back injuries having potential life-changing results, back injury claims can often be a great way to receive the compensation that you’re owed. An accident can be extremely distressing, particularly when caused due to someone else’s negligence.

Spinal Injuries

Cord damage can happen with spinal injuries, which often leads to permanent nerve damage, discomfort, or phantom pain. This bundle of nerve fibres travel alongside your entire spine to connect with practically all of your body to your brain.

In addition to permanent nerve damage, spinal injuries can also result in loss of sensation, paralysis, or incontinence.

Lumbar Spine Trauma

Also known as lower back pain, lumbar spine trauma can be extremely uncomfortable and categorised into four different types:

  • Sprain. A tear or damage to supporting ligaments.
  • Fracture. When bone cracks or breaks.
  • Strain. When there’s muscular damage.
  • Herniation. Movement or damage of spinal discs.

Brachial Plexus Injury

The network of nerves in the spine between the shoulder blades is called the brachial plexus. If the nerves get damaged, they cause something called brachial neuritis, or Parsonage-Turner syndrome.

Any damage done to the nerves can often lead to tingling or numbness and pain in both arms and hands.

Strains, Sprains, and Pulls

Even a day-to-day task at work can cause a back injury. When muscles are torn or overstretched, sprains, strains, or pulls can happen. This can lead to difficulty standing, moving, or severe lower back pain.

Back Injury Claims from an Accident at Work

Employers have a duty of care to keep all employees safe, which includes both providing you with necessary training and a safe work environment. Back injury claims from accidents at work are common, particularly when your employer doesn’t follow the required legislation to ensure your health and safety.

Even with mechanisms in place to ensure your safety, accidents at work can sometimes occur. Should this happen, employees can often claim compensation for accidents at work. Back injuries, for example, can happen at work for a wide range of reasons such as:

  • Work near exposed electrical connections
  • Work near items that can fall from height
  • Slips, trips, and falls from height

If you believe you have suffered a back injury due to forgotten, absent, or flawed health and safety procedures, we’re here to help you. You need to ensure that you record any and all evidence, including photos, medical records, witness statements, and all relevant information.

Back injuries can range from very mild to severe or even life-altering damage, and it’s important that you receive compensation that you’re owed – especially if you need long-term care or expensive therapy and surgery.
