Back Injury Solicitors

Back injury solicitors issue legal proceedings for compensation in a number of situations where the damage has been caused by the negligence of a third party. The most common claims are as follows :-

    Motor Accidents

    Every year car accidents account for tens of thousands of whiplash neck and back injuries in Australia ranging from minor to severe however most people who suffer a whiplash injury make a full recover within two years. More severe back injuries that do not resolve mainly occur to certain classes of vulnerable individuals including the elderly and those with a pre-existing back condition.

    Slips Trips Falls

    Slips, trips and falls may cause serious back injury and tripping and slipping accidents are a major cause of damage to the vertebrae, discs and tendons particularly to the elderly and those with a pre-existing back condition. The cause of slipping accidents frequently rests with the owners and occupiers of property where the incident took place.

    Workers Compensation

    Back injuries sustained in the workplace account for more time off work than all of the other types of work related accidents added together. Employers must adopt mechanical handling methods where reasonably possible and must carry out proper risk assessment and ensure the provision of adequate training in materials handling and in addition supply adequate protective equipment where necessary. Even if the accident is caused by the negligence of a co-worker, a claim for workers compensation can still be made as all employees are entitled to expect a safe system of work.

    Defective furniture including chairs and stools may collapse under a persons body weight causing severe back injury. There are also numerous accidents every year caused by defective ladders and step ladders.
