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.
