this American website advice about the weight of backpacks carried by children to school. Having children myself, it seems to me that in fact they seem to carry fewer books around then I did at their age. They seem to share books in class and rely on the internet so much." />

Who are BL Claims Solicitors

BL Claims Solicitors specialise in personal injury, clinical negligence and travel claims, providing our clients with hands-on support, nationally.

We are rated as one of the top firms in the UK and believe in speaking to our clients in jargon-free language and ensuring you're speaking to a highly qualified lawyer right from the outset

However, when I deal with my personal injury clients with neck and back injuries, I often see that there injuries are complicated by pre-existing wear and tear. This happens to us all to a varying degree and usually we are unaware of it until it develops to an extent where it causes pain, or until a trauma like a whiplash injury triggers the symptoms.

I wonder whether this is going to be an increased problem for our own children as carrying heavy weights would certainly increase the wear and tear on their spine. Perhaps they will end up with more wear and tear causing back problems at an earlier age then in my generation.
