Back Injury Claims

Back injuries can be extremely painful and along with restricting mobility can significantly affect people’s lives.

Back injuries can vary enormously from soft tissue injuries and tendon or ligament damage lasting from just a few days to several weeks, to more serious and life-altering injuries involving herniated discs, fractured vertebrae and paraplegia.

The lower back is the most common site for back injuries and pain although symptoms can be felt anywhere along your spine from your neck down to your pelvis.

Back injuries are often the result of road traffic accidents, slips and trips, defective products, falling from height, incorrect manual handling techniques or from lifting, carrying, pushing or pulling loads that are too heavy, either in the workplace or at home.

Although treatment varies depending on the severity of the injury, it may include, prescription medication, bed rest or moderate exercise, hot and cold compression packs, manual therapy such as physiotherapy, acupuncture and osteopathy and in severe cases, surgery.

Some people believe they may not be able to make a back injury claim if they have already suffered acute or chronic back pain in the past. This is not the case however, if pre-existing back problems have been exacerbated by a recent injury or age-related back symptoms, which may not have developed so soon, have been brought forward as a result of an accident.

If you have suffered a back injury through someone else’s negligence, especially if your injury was caused by an accident at work or road traffic accident, our team of back injury experts can help guide you through the complex process of claiming compensation.

As leading experts in our field, the back injury team at Fentons have particular expertise in dealing with accident at work claims involving back injuries due to incorrect manual handling. Our team can draw on many years’ experience and specialised knowledge of the regulations and guidelines regarding the lifting and moving of heavy objects at work, and help you access the financial compensation, medical treatment and rehabilitation you need to aid your recovery.
