Compensation for a back injury at work

Back injuries are potentially one of the most serious and most dangerous types of injuries that you can sustain and as such, any injuries of this type can be incredibly debilitating and require a great deal of rest and rehabilitation. Your back is one of the most important areas of the body and if you do sustain an injury in this area you could find it difficult to walk, move or perform many of the daily tasks that you have come to take for granted.

The workplace is a mecca for back injuries, especially if the correct safety precautions aren’t taken and back injuries are one of the most common sources of compensation claims in this area. If you have sustained a back injury through the negligence of your employer who has failed to provide you with adequate safety equipment or training, then you could be eligible to make a compensation claim against them to recoup any costs. 

What are some examples of common back injuries I could sustain?

There are a number of different back injuries that you could sustain in the workplace and you could consider making a claim for any of these. These claims include:

  • Slipped disc and other back injuries sustained from a trip or fall
  • Back injuries sustained from a fall from height
  • Partial or total paralysis
  • Injuries sustained from falling objects
  • Fractures to the spinal cord and surrounding area.

Who could I claim against for a back injury?

If you have sustained a back injury in the workplace then you could claim against your employer if you feel that they have been negligent towards you. In any workplace it is the responsibility of the employer to ensure that the appropriate safety measures are taken and that the appropriate training and safety equipment is provided. If you feel that you have been working in unsafe conditions then you could make a claim against your employer for compensation.
