Back aches and bad backs, and more serious injuries, will most commonly occur in the workplace as an employee. If you have been hurt at work, then call us now and give us as much information as possible about the circumstances of the incident. Once we have some initial information from you, we will be able to tell you whether you can honestly make a personal injury claim for a workplace back injury.

  • Work accident book and reports
  • Medical records and reports
  • Witness statements where possible
  • Receipts for your expenses

All of these aspects will help us to ascertain exactly how much back injury compensation you could be entitled to, including exact amounts and payouts.

Back injuries will vary from case to case, and our solicitors will be able to help you in more detail once we have spoken to you about how much you could be due. However, below are some very rough guidelines to back injury compensation amounts and payouts in Bristol:

Concerns You Might Have

If you are taking action due to a back injury claim as an employee, and are concerned about claiming compensation from your employer, then please, don’t worry. We will treat your call with the utmost confidence. However, employers have a duty of care towards their workers, and if they fail in this care, and you become injured, then it’s only fair and just that you are compensated.

Many clients we talk to are hesitant about claiming against their work as they are worried it could affect their career. You should be aware that it’s illegal for an employer to discriminate against an employee if a claim is brought to book. In addition to that, any back injury compensation will be paid from the company’s insurance policies, so it won’t come out of the pocket of your bosses. Please also note that most cases are settled outside of court, very quickly by the insurance companies – our Bristol solicitors** can tell you more during an appointment.
