We have a dedicated team of solicitors ready to help you claim compensation for your injuries and a proven track record of recovering thousands of pounds in compensation for those who have suffered as a result of a back injury that was not their fault.

Contact us today on freephone 0800 689 0973 and get your back injury compensation claim underway.

We understand that back injuries can be completely debilitating and have handled many back injury compensation claims for people who have suffered minor injuries right up to those who have been permanently paralysed due to a serious spinal injury.

Causes of back injuries

A few examples of how back injuries can occur are outlined below:

  • Individuals lifting or moving heavy objects manually
  • Individuals falling from height whilst at work or in public
  • Back injuries as a result of a trip or slip
  • Victims being struck by a falling object

Results of back injuries

Back injuries can cause long lasting or even lifelong damage resulting in on-going pain or in severe cases disability. We have helped a wide variety of victims of back injuries who have suffered the following:

  • Damages to tendons or ligaments
  • Broken spines
  • Pulled muscles
  • Slipped or prolapsed discs
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Paraplegia
  • Brachial plexus injuries

Accidents at work

A vast majority of back injuries sustained at work are a result of employees moving or lifting heavy objects without the appropriate training or machinery to assist them. If your employer fails to provide you with machinery to move objects such as a palette or forklift truck or fails to provide you with the appropriate training to lift these objects and you are injured, you may be eligible for compensation.

Road traffic accidents

Road traffic accidents contribute to a great deal of back injuries, and is something the expert solicitors at Forbes have a vast amount of experience in. A road traffic accident can leave victims in serious distress as the emotional scarring associated can also be debilitating. When a back injury is added, this can all seem completely overwhelming, but the expert personal injury solicitors at Forbes can help you claim the compensation you deserve.

Make a claim

A back injury can lead to long term suffering, rendering a victim unable to work or go about their day as they normally would have. With this in mind, if you are injured as a result of someone else's negligence or are injured in an accident you deserve compensation, as this can help cover any medical costs and help to recover any loss of finances.

For expert legal help, contact the specialist back injury solicitors at Forbes today on 0800 689 0973 and get your back injury compensation claim started now.

Alternatively if you would like a face to face consultation, we have expert Solicitors at each of our offices based in Accrington, Blackburn, Chorley and Preston ready to help you.
