7 out of 10 People Suffer Back Pain
Statistics say that as many as 7 out of 10 people suffer with back pain during their lives. Back pain is therefore a widespread problem but how many of these people have hurt themselves as a result of an accident which was not their fault? No one can be precisely sure but clearly back conditions are a huge problem affecting the whole population and keeping people off work for periods at a time.
To illustrate the point there are a wide variety of ways in which back injury occur:
- Lifting and bending to lift heavy items;
- Car accidents;
- Tripping and slipping accidents;
- Repetitive lifting of objects;
- Defective chairs, stools and ladders.
Bringing a successful back injury claim
To succeed, similar to all personal injury claims, the first hurdle is to establish that the back condition was actually caused by the accident. This is why that if the back injury was sustained at work it is important that the accident has been formally reported and the accident book has been completed. It is also essential that you can show that the accident was the fault of your employer or, if not sustained at work, was the fault of somebody else.
Your medical history is important in the context of demonstrating that the back injuries were caused by the accident and when attending for medical advice and treatment you should make sure the circumstances of the back injury are accurately recorded.
