Back injury

Back injuries and disorders are extremely common and one of the main causes of sickness absence in the UK.  The National Health Service estimates that 'one in five people will visit their GP in any given year because of back pain and 80% of adults will experience at least one episode of back pain at some point in their life.'

Whilst this is a common problem, when a back injury has been caused by the negligence of someone else, such as in a road traffic collision or an incident at work, the sufferer may be entitled to claim compensation.

We will investigate the circumstances of your accident and thereafter we shall instruct a suitably qualified medical expert to report upon the nature of the injury you have suffered and how it may affect your future.

In all but the most minor of back injury claims, which settle within just a few weeks, we invite your opponent's insurer to facilitate a course of rehabilitation, such as physiotherapy.  

Blake Lapthorn are a leading firm of accident and negligence solicitors, well-respected and experienced in handling compensation claims for back injuries.
