Compensation for Back Injury Claims

IMMEDIATE CALLBACK:



Back injuries can be complicated and serious. There are bones, muscles, tendons, major nerves, and other soft tissues that help us accomplish our day to day tasks. Almost everything that you do in life requires the use of your back. Lifting, slips and falls, road traffic accidents, sports accidents and assaults are some of the common personal injuries that cause a back injury.

Common (yet often severe) back injuries include:

  • Fracturing vertebrae
  • Disc herniation
  • Muscle strain, sprain or spasms

Back injuries can change the way that you live your life. Commonly, long-lasting side effects occur:

  • Suffering from chronic pain
  • Problems walking, lifting or performing other daily activities
  • Full paralysis
  • Partial paralysis

Back injuries may limit your movement. You could need physical therapy or surgery. Many people who suffer from back injuries as a result of personal injury are placed on bed rest and unable to work.

Lifting heavy items is one of the most common causes of back injuries. Sometimes, it’s not even the weight of the item as much as it is the frequency of moving heavy items. If you think that you have hurt your back in any type of accident, you should get medical attention immediately. Then, contact Tiernan & Co. Solicitors about your potential personal injury claim.
