Back Injuries at Work

Back Injuries at Work

If you have suffered a back injury whilst at work, whether it was the result of an accident or improper training, you may be able to make a claim for financial compensation.

Common Work-Related Back Injuries

At Farleys, our accident at work solicitors regularly advise clients who have sustained serious back injuries as a result of their employer’s, or a fellow employee’s negligence.

Unfortunately back injuries are a relatively common work-related injury, particularly in professions that involve a large amount of heavy lifting. Back injuries are often caused by:

  • inadequate training in correct lifting techniques;
  • poor posture or poorly designed office chairs;
  • insufficient break time for both sedentary and physically active employees;
  • regular use of heavy, vibrating machinery;
  • lack of supervision;

If you feel that your back injury was caused by any of the above scenarios, contact a solicitor as soon as possible to discuss your compensation claim.

Back Injury Compensation Claims

In order to make a successful back injury compensation claim you will need to prove that another person is responsible for your back injury. Your case will therefore be helped if you provide as much information as possible about the accident or situation that caused your back injury. This could take the form of details of medical treatment you received, details of your injuries and diagnosis, witness testimony and contact details for witnesses (where an accident caused your back injury). The more information you provide, the better your chances of making a successful claim.

The work accident team at Farleys will provide you with legal advice and guidance for the duration of the legal process, ensuring you receive the maximum amount of compensation for your back injury.
