Back Injuries from a Road Traffic Accident

Back injuries are perhaps one of the most crippling and debilitating injuries that you could sustain and they are one type of injury that is able to have a very direct impact on your lifestyle. Road traffic accidents are one of the most common causes of back injuries around the UK and this is mainly due to the direct force of the impact and the high speed at which this type of accident usually occurs. As a result, you could be left with a rather crippling illness and a rather large medical bill.

Road traffic accidents are common personal injury cases, mainly because in most situations there is someone at fault and if this isn’t you, then you could be eligible to make a claim to recoup any financial losses that you have made as a result of your injuries. 

Where could I receive a Back Injury?

There are a number of different situations where you could receive a back injury as a result of a road traffic accident and these include:

  • Accidents which involve animals
  • Accidents due to black ice or poor weather conditions
  • Accidents which involve heavy goods vehicles
  • Accidents with negligent drivers
  • Accidents due to poor maintenance of the road.

What types of Back Injury could I sustain?

Road traffic accidents can lead to a number of different back injuries, some far more serious than the others, and some that you might consider making a compensation claim for include:

  • Paralysis
  • Lower back injuries
  • Upper back injuries
  • Slipped disc
  • Sprains and strains.

Who can I make a claim against?

Compensation claims for back injuries that you have sustained as the result of a road traffic accident can be made against anyone who you feel has been negligent towards you. This can include another driver if you feel that their negligence has led to your injuries, or perhaps a third party such as a private property owner or the council, if your accidents were caused by an unsafe road surfacing, or poor driving conditions that hadn’t been dealt with appropriately.
