Back Injury Compensation
Chronic back pain can seriously compromise our quality of life, and if the condition is linked to the workplace, you may have a case for back injury compensation. If your back pain has lasted for a significant period of time, you can call Blackwater Law today to talk about a claim.
Back pain can be the result of damage to the bones, muscles, nerves, tendons, ligaments, discs, tendons and the spinal cord. It often occurs after workplace injuries caused by someone else’s negligence. There are many potential causes of back pain and injuries, including the carrying and lifting of objects, falling, slipping, tripping and substandard products and furniture. Back pain can also occur after road accidents.
A Duty of Care
You may experience chronic back pain after being forced to lift a heavy object at work. If the load carried was outside legal limits but you were expected to lift it nonetheless, you may have a case for compensation. You may also be able to take action if your employer did not provide you with adequate carrying and lifting training. Falls can occur after health and safety procedures aren’t implemented at work. You may experience a fall due to poor scaffolding or the absence of safety barriers for instance.
Chronic back pain can also be caused by defective products including chairs or ladders. Slips and trips are another cause and are often the result of someone else’s negligence. For instance, a slip may occur after a spillage is not dealt with, whilst a trip may occur when debris is left somewhere it shouldn’t be. If you have suffered from chronic back pain due to negligence, we can help.
