Compensation claims for back injuries are common in car accidents but they also arise as a result of slips and trips and accidents at work often where employees are asked to lift items that are too heavy for them. In such cases the employer should have provided assistance from other employees or even machinery, such as a crane, to take the weight. There can sometimes be psychological injuries as people with more serious injures can suffer from depression. If you have suffered a back injury then you deserve compensation.
Severe back injuries can lead to paralysis which can be temporary or permanent and which attracts a different type of compensation award altogether. Adaptations may need to be made to the persons home and wheelchairs and stair lifts provided. Home care from specialist nurses may also be required. Less serious back injuries cans till cause inconvenience to someone's life whilst they take time to recover.
