Compensation for a Compression Fracture

The back is one area of the body that is incredibly important to pretty much any task we are trying to do and any injuries in this area can leave us with serious health problems and concerns further down the track. Compression fractures can be incredibly painful and usually target the spinal area specifically and if left untreated they can lead to the development of far more serious health issues and potentially a long-term disability.

If you have sustained a compression fracture through the negligence of another person then you could be eligible to make a compensation claim.

What are the attributes of a Compression Fracture?

A compression fracture is one type of fracture that is generally very specific to a certain area of the body. In this case it usually refers to damage sustained to the vertebrae as the result of an impact. A compression fracture occurs when the vertebrae becomes damaged, leading to either the slipping of a disc or the potential dislocation of a particular bone within the back area. Both of these problems can lead to a series of health issues including on-going sustained back pain and the development of more serious long-term problems including arthritis.

How could I receive a Compression Fracture?

Compression fractures can generally occur anywhere where the spine has suffered from severe trauma. Some common examples of situations where this may occur include:

  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Accidents in the workplace
  • Falls from a height
  • Injuries sustained after being hit by a falling object
  • Injuries sustained in a fall from a bicycle or motorbike.
