Dealing with a Back Injury!
One of the most common complaints our injury lawyers deal with are those of back injuries at work, which can often be devastating. Workers may hurt their back in a number of different situations. However, the common theme these accidents have is that health and safety guidelines haven’t been correctly followed by the employer – whether that injury is the result of a fall or heavy lifting.
When your employer hires you, they are taking responsibility for your health. If you should injure yourself at your workplace, through no fault of your own, it is your employer who must bear the blame.
If this describes you, get in touch with us today. The funds recovered can help you rebuild your life. We’re on 01-6641800, or request that we give you a call-back.
Is There A Time Limit On Making A Back Injury Claim?
Yes, though it does have some exceptions. Usually, you’ll need to start your claim within two years of the date when your back was injured. Generally speaking, if you believe you have a legal claim in anything, don’t delay in seeking help. The earlier a potential case is reported, the easier it is to find evidence for it, and the better your memory will be of the crucial details.
Everyone’s claim is entirely different, so it is difficult to tell you exactly how much you might get to make amends for your back injury. The estimates we can provide will take into account your time off work, lasting personal harm, psychological effects and other issues.
