Claiming back injury compensation has helped a huge number of people cope with not working and not being able to live comfortably in their day to day routine. Back injuries are very serious and should not be taken lightly.
Understanding Your Back
Back injuries are very serious and should not be taken lightly considering you have the option to claim back injury compensation. Your spine houses your spinal cord which transports messages from your brain out to the nerves on each side of your vertebrae (the 24 bones in your spine). These nerves control everything in your body.
If you have damaged your spine, take a look at our Spinal Injury Compensation Claims Page.
Back injuries effect you a lot more than you would expect. Not only are you unable to take part in physical activity, whether it be sport, work or family time, but it effects you mentally more than anything else. Don’t let something like this take over your life; consider talking to one of our solicitors about back injury compensation.
Damage to your spinal cord can result in paralysis or limited body movement. The severity of an injured back can range from a slight pain to being permanently disabled.
A fracture in the neck or spine can cause permanent disability or even death, particularly if the spinal cord is damaged. If you have had a fall where your back might have been injured, a scan should be carried out immediately to check for fractures, particularly if there is any loss of feeling or a tingling sensation.
Back Injury Claims
One of the most common injuries of back injury compensation cases we come across is a slipped disc. This type of injury is more accurately described as ‘prolapsed disc’ or ‘herniated disc’. This type of injury is caused when the disc bulges or ruptures and the internal material presses on a nerve or the spinal cord.
A common bone to break in the back is the coccyx which is the bone at the bottom of the spine or ‘tail bone’. The soft tissues of the back include the muscles, ligaments, tendons and nerves. If any soft tissues are damaged or bruised, you will experience back pain. Injuries of this nature are not visible to the eye and possibly not detectable by x-ray. Pain is usually what leads to further investigation and diagnosis.
