If your terms of employment require you to lift or move heavy objects, then it is the responsibility of your employer to make sure that you are adequately trained before you commence your role. If the correct training has not been given and you injure yourself, then you may be entitled to claim compensation.
Back or spinal injuries may be common following a road accident, but it is a specialist legal claim, and a highly qualified and experienced solicitor should always represent you.
A fracture to the vertebrae or a sprain to the ligaments in the back cause different types of pain, which can last for days or months and be mild or severe in nature. You should always seek medical advice. When possible, take a photograph of the area or item that caused your accident. This will be useful for your solicitor, should you decide to claim compensation.
Partaking in fast-paced, intense sports such as football, rugby, cycling or horse-racing can sometimes lead to serious injury. An injury to the back can severely limit movement. This may be short or long term and can be life-changing for you and your family.
A spinal cord injury can be devastating; At Specters, we will ensure that you receive specialist medical care, rehabilitation and long-term support.
