Back Injuries From The Workplace in Portsmouth
Back Injuries account for millions of lost man hours every year. Some back injuries are relatively minor, with little or no long lasting effects and a quick recovery.
When Can I Make a Claim for a Back Injury?
You can make a claim for a back injury providing it came as the result of someone else’s negligence. The most common example of this would be a workplace injury. If your job involves a lot of heavy lifting, it is your employer’s duty to ensure you receive the proper training about the safest way to do this. If your employer fails to provide this, or the training provided is inadequate, and you suffer a back injury as a result of your job, you could be entitled to make a successful back injury claim against your employer.
If your employer failed to give you the correct training and you suffered a back injury as a result, speak to Accident Claims Portsmouth today for a free, confidential consultation.
You can also make a claim for a back injury suffered in public, such as an injury caused by a slip in a supermarket or a building owned or operated by a local council.
Claiming Against Your Employer
There is also no need to fear of placing your employer under any financial strain as employers are legally required to have insurance covering accidents in the workplace and the running of their business. You will therefore not be claiming against your employer directly, but against their insurer who will pay your compensation instead.
If you think you might have a claim and are ready to discuss your experience, contact Accident Claims Portsmouth for a free, no obligations consultation about your claim.
