While many of us experience occasional back pain, nobody should have to suffer with chronic pain. If you’ve had an accident or suffer long-term back pain through no fault of your own, our back injury claims solicitors could help you get the compensation you deserve.

How To Make A Back Injury Claim

Call us on 0800 056 4110 for your free initial consultation. We’ll take down the details of your case, including the injury type and the circumstances that led to your injury, and assess if we think you have a claim. Whether you were injured at work, on the road or out and about in public, you may have suffered:

  • A lower back injury
  • A sprain or strain
  • A slipped disc
  • Fractured vertebrae
  • Spinal injuries.

We’ll determine who’s responsible for your back injury and then talk you through the funding options. If the person you’re claiming against accepts responsibility early on, we may be able to help you get interim back injury compensation payments before your final settlement.

How Long Do You Have To Make A Back Injury Claim?

Generally speaking, the cut-off point is three years after the date of the incident, but there are some exceptions to these time limits. We always advise that you claim as soon as possible after the incident. This helps us to produce the most accurate report and increases your chances of getting compensation.

How Much Compensation Can I Claim For A Back Injury?

There are no set compensation amounts for a back injury claim. Your personal assessment will be based on:

  • The severity of the injury
  • Its impact, for example not being able to take part in a hobby you enjoyed before the accident
  • Loss of earnings
  • Whether or not you’ll need ongoing support.

No Win No Fee Back Injury Claims

Most of our claims are ‘no win, no fee’, which means that yours and your opponent’s legal fees are covered if you’re unsuccessful*. If you’re successful, your opponent will pay the majority of your legal costs. Any costs not paid by your opponent will be deducted from the compensation you receive.
