Back Injury

Back pain can be particularly debilitating, leading to poor quality of life and lifelong implications. Back pain usually lasts a short time, but can be described as ‘chronic’ if symptoms persist for more than 12 weeks. Most adults experience back pain at some point in their life, and 50% of working adults suffer from the ailment at least once a year.

Back injury is often caused as a result of manual handling at work – lifting and moving stock, for example. Your employer has a duty to ensure members of staff are correctly trained and that the right lifting equipment is provided. However, even if you have had training, you might be entitled to make a claim for back injury.

Other causes of back injury might include road traffic accidents or slips/trips.
