All firms will probably provide the first half hour of your consultation free of charge, either by telephone or in person.

More serious back injuries can occur anywhere, for example whilst at work, out on the road or from tripping on uneven pavement slabs. These types of injuries can be debilitating and again often lead to much pain and suffering.

Many people suffering back injuries have to take time off work to recover and this can lead to a loss of income and subsequent financial troubles. Rehabilitation following a back injury can vastly improve a person’s life and but this can be expensive and therefore a specialist lawyer is essential to help you get sufficient compensation for your suffering.

Types of back injury

  • Soft tissue damage - these injuries generally have no visible signs but can cause long term pain
  • Road traffic accidents - whiplash might be the most common injury, but much more severe injuries can result from serious accidents
  • Construction site accidents
  • Lifting or moving heavy objects - most common in the workplace where inadequate training or lack of a risk assessment can result in injury
  • Slips, trips and falls - caused by wet, slippery and uneven surfaces
  • Faulty products - such as ladders and chairs which can break leading to a fall
  • Slipped disc - caused when a spinal disc is displaced causing pressure on the nerve or spinal cord
  • Fractured neck or fractured spine - very serious injuries which can lead to paralysis and even death

Claiming compensation for back injury

If you have suffered a back injury as a result of someone else’s negligence you may be able to make a claim for compensation to help ease the pain and suffering and to alleviate potential financial troubles. Only specialist back injury lawyers are listed on this page.

It is strongly recommended that you should consult with two or three accredited injury lawyers before making a decision on who to instruct.
