Accidents at work

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.
