Back pain is never nice to deal with, but if it has been due to the negligence of someone else then it can be really frustrating. It goes without saying that we all expect to go about our day and not be injured – thankfully most of us are successful! However, there are times when poor decision making by someone else or a lack of care can result in injury. Often this is just a slip or fall which doesn’t result in suffering, however sometimes things are much more serious. One of the most common problems following an accident is back injury, which can often lead to much more serious and long term issues.
How Back Injury Can Occur
There are many ways in which someone’s back can be injured. Accidents by their very nature are unpredictable and therefore we never know when they are going to happen. Road traffic accidents are a common way for people to injure their backs, as are accidents at work. If you have fallen from a height, been made to carry heavy objects or you have had to use a piece of faulty machinery that has resulted in back injury, then it could be that you are entitled to make a back injury claim. In fact if you have been injured in an accident and this is as a result of someone else’s negligence or poor training at work then you could be entitled to make a claim.
