Strained Back Injury Compensation Claims Information
If you have suffered a strained back injury that wasn’t your fault, we are here for you. Where sprains and strains may feel the same, being that there is pain in the back, they are in fact very different. Sprains involve injury to the back through the stretching or tearing of the ligaments, whereas strains are injuries that involve tearing of muscle tissue or tendons. If you have a strained back as the result of someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation.
How Serious Can Strained Back Injuries Be?
Strained back injuries can vary from minor to severe, but all of which can have a significantly negative impact on a person’s normal lifestyle, including work, travel, socialising and everyday activities. Acute strained backs are arguably the most typical form of back strain, and although a more minor injury, can still impede on a person’s life. A chronic strained back is much more severe and can even render a person immobile or require surgery. Whatever type of strained back injury you are suffering from, we are here to help. Contact our legal experts today to begin your claim for compensation.
Am I Eligible To Claim For Strained Back Compensation?
If you have a strained back injury as the result of an accident that was not your fault, you may be entitled to compensation. You are eligible to make a claim if your strained back injury was the direct outcome of someone else’s negligence. If you are unsure as to who the fault lies with, or you wish to discuss your claim for compensation in more detail with a personal injury solicitor, get in touch with our team today for friendly, no obligation advice.
Should You File a Claim For Your Strained Back?
Strained backs are a frequent injury in work environments. If you have sustained a strain to your back you may have grounds for a claim, especially if the condition has been diagnosed as a chronic sprain.
If your sprain was the result of improper policies and procedures, either in the form of the existence of faulty procedures or the absence of procedures, which resulted in the sprain to the back, you may have grounds for a claim. In such cases where the procedures were faulty, if the injury was obtained while following the practices and procedures, you more definitely have a claim.
If your sprain occurred while lifting or carrying products or goods for your business, you may have grounds for a claim. Even if you used a back support and/or other safety equipment, if the load carried posed a substantial risk for injury you may be entitled to compensation.
Jobs which require continuous and repetitious strain upon the back need to make know to potential employees the health risks of undertaking such a job. If you were not advised as to the health risks, specifically as it relates to the acute or chronic strain which has occurred to your back, thank you may have grounds for a claim. You may also have grounds for a claim if the potential for injury was misrepresented in order to obtain your services.
I Suffered A Strained Back At Work – Can I Claim?
If you were at work when you sustained your strained back injury, you may be entitled to claim compensation from your employer if they did not have the proper safety precautions in place as a preventative measure. Because strained backs are so common, cases must be filed in a timely manner and adhere to the regulations and restrictions for filing such a claim. Compensation claims which are based upon negligence must show that the defendant was at fault for the injury. You are more apt to win your case if policies and procedures were being followed. Your case will also have more merit if you have medical proof of your injury. If you have suffered a strained back injury at work, file your claim for compensation with our team today.
