Will I have to pay to claim?
No Win No Fee claims mean you don't have to pay any money up front and we only get a fee if we win compensation for you. This is a risk-free way of doing things that lets you make a claim even if you can't afford to pay for a lawyer. That's why we handle around 98% of back injury cases as No Win No Fee claims.
Will I have to have a medical for my back injury claim?
Back injuries can be serious and complicated, so it takes an expert to work out how serious your injury is, and how long it might take to heal. This is important, because not only do we need proper evidence of your back injury, we also want to make sure you get all the compensation you deserve. After all, if a back injury is likely to stop you working, for example, you need to make sure your loss of pay will be covered.
Will I have to go to court for a back injury claim?
Most injury compensation claims are settled between lawyers without ever going to court. So it would be quite unusual for your back injury claim to end up in court. In fact, you don't even have to come to our offices if you don't want to. While our offices are conveniently placed all over the country, we're happy to talk to you by phone if you prefer.
What sort of back injuries can I claim for?
It's good to understand that back injuries and spinal injuries aren't quite the same thing. Back injuries tend to cover the lower back, while spinal injuries generally happen at the top of the back, next to the neck. Typical back injuries are:
- Muscle strains
- Slipped discs
- Torn ligaments
- Severe bruising
This isn't a full list though, so if you have injured your back in any way and it was someone else's fault, you should talk to one of our friendly advisors today.
What can I claim for?
When you have sustained a back injury that was someone else's fault, you might be able to claim compensation for any or all of these things:
- Loss of earnings
- Pain and suffering
- Medical expenses
Depending on how serious your back injury is, all of these things can add up to cost you a lot of money. That's why it's important to talk to an expert lawyer to see if you are entitled to compensation. Start today by calling one of our friendly advisors.
Who's to blame for my back injury?
The lower back can be injured in all sorts of ways, from trying to lift heavy objects without the proper equipment or training to falling on a slippery staircase. These are some of the most common causes of back injuries we help people with:
- Workplace injuries: caused by trips, falls or unsafe lifting
- Car accidents: whether you were a driver, passenger or pedestrian
- Clinical negligence: where a back operation has gone wrong
- Slips and trips: due to wet floors or hidden obstacles
In all of these cases, where someone else was at fault for your back injury, you may be entitled to start a No Win No Fee compensation claim. Talk to one of our friendly advisors now on 0800 175 7900.
