Back Injury Compensation
Back injuries encompass a wide spectrum of types of injury from the most severe such as paralysis and damage to the spine, to minor injuries like strains and sprains. Back injuries can be among the most debilitating of all injuries and can be very hard to treat. These injuries are commonly associated with lengthy periods of rest and recovery. As such, you may also be able to make a claim for lost earnings.
Back injuries can result from slips, trips and falls, workplace accidents, or road traffic accidents. The level of back injury compensation reflects the severity and nature of the injury as well as the type.
