If you have suffered from a lower back injury as a result of an accident, whether in the car or due to a slip or fall, you will be in a lot of pain and your mobility may also have been affected. Back injuries can range tremendously in seriousness, from soreness over a few weeks to permanent disability or even paralysis. Regardless of the specifics of the injury, it is important that you seek expert legal advice as soon as possible.

Lower Back Injury Compensation

Back injuries can also be caused in the workplace, due to lifting and carrying without the correct precautions being taken, or even by faulty products such as chairs or ladders giving way. If the accident which caused your lower back injury was someone else’s fault, then you may be able to claim financial compensation for the pain and suffering you have been caused, as well as for any expenses incurred or for any loss of income due to your injury. Such claims are often against employers, especially when it is clear that an employer has failed to comply with relevant health and safety legislation. Our team of specialist personal injury solicitors, based in Wakefield, will be able to advise you on how much compensation you may be entitled to claim.

One common type of back injury is a slipped disc, which is when one of the discs between your vertebrae bulges or ruptures, pressing on the nerve or spinal cord and causing pain. Broken bones in the back can be particularly serious, in particular if a vertebra is fractured as this can lead to nerve damage or permanent paralysis. The coccyx at the base of the spine is frequently broken in lower back injuries. Soft tissue injuries to the lower back can also occur, if the muscles, tendons or ligaments in your back have been strained or jarred.

Make a Claim for a Lower Back Injury

If you suffer a back injury at work, you should make sure you report it straight away. Wakefield personal injury lawyers will be able to advise you about the correct steps to take if you are going to sue your employer for compensation. Employers have a duty to protect workers from injury and must provide training about lifting heavy weights, if this has caused your back injury, or if your slip or fall was caused by wet floors or inappropriate signage. Alternatively, if you were hurt in a road traffic accident Wakefield solicitors** will be able to help you seek compensation from the driver that was at fault.
