A spinal or back injury can be sustained in a variety of ways and can lead to very severe consequences. Common instances where someone may suffer such an injury are:
Accidents at Work
If your terms of employment require you to lift or move heavy objects, then it is the responsibility of your employer to make sure that you are adequately trained before you commence your role: If the correct training has not been given and you injure yourself then you may be entitled to claim compensation.
Road Traffic Accidents
Back or spinal injuries may be common following a road accident but it is a specialist area of claim and you should always be represented by a highly qualified and experienced solicitor.
Slips, Trips or Falls

You should always seek medical advice.
