Back Injury at Work Claims

At Hill & Abbott we have a team dedicated to assist with accident at work compensation claims. 

One of the most common injuries to happen in the work place is injuries to the back.  Each year employees suffer from a back injury resulting in lengthy periods of absence from work.  This impacts not only on the injured person and their family but also the employer.  Your employer has a duty to ensure that risk of injury is minimal and must ensure that they undertake everything reasonably possible to reduce the risk of injury to their employees.

If you have injured your back at work then you may be able to make a claim for personal injury.

At Hill & Abbott we have helped thousands of employees recover compensation following a back injury at work.  Injuries that were caused as a direct result of their employer’s negligence, these include claims such as:

  • Lifting or moving heavy objects
  • Falling from height
  • A trip or slip
  • Being struck by falling objects
  • Falling off a chair which was damaged

The above can cause injuries of varying degrees Back injuries can be extremely varied, but also particularly painful and debilitating. Injuries can include:

  • Soft tissues injuries
  • Tendon or ligament damage
  • Pulled muscles
  • Prolapsed discs
  • Paraplegia
  • Fractures

The daily impact on you following a back injury is not only physical but psychological and can be extremely stressful.  That is why Hill & Abbott will seek to obtain interim payments throughout the process of your claim.  The benefits of interim payments mean you can concentrate on your recovery with the knowledge that you will have the funds to cover your bill and daily living expenses.

Hill & Abbott can help

Our experienced solicitors will take care of the legal elements of your claim so that you can focus on recovering and a return to work.

We know that many people have previously suffered from back pain however, you may still be able to bring a claim following an accident at work.  Contact our team to discuss whether you are able to make a claim even if you have a pre-existing back injury, or for symptoms which would normally occur later in life to be aggravated (exacerbated).
