If you have suffered a back injury at work as the result of an accident which was not your fault, the Croftons Solicitors team may be able to assist you with making a claim.
Back injuries can be extremely painful and cause people to miss time from work, potentially leading to loss of earnings and additional medical expenses.
All of these factors will be taken into account when determining the total payout you could receive should the claim be successful.
Back Injury Compensation Claims
For any case to proceed, there are a number of factors which must initially be determined to ensure that the claim can be considered. The first of these is that your employer must have been to blame for the accident.
Incidents involving lifting are often to blame for work-related back injuries, and can happen as a result of failing to provide proper safety equipment or insufficient training on correct lifting methods.
You must also consider the date of the accident, with only claims relating to accidents within the last three years able to be taken forward.
An exception to this comes when a back injury is only discovered at a later date, with the cut-off point reverting to three years from the date of diagnosis in this instance.
