Back Injury Claims Queensland
Spinal injuries can be debilitating, often changing the affected person’s life forever. If you have suffered a spinal injury then you may find yourself no longer able to work, look after your family or care for yourself. If this injury was sustained at work, on the road or through no fault of your own then you may be entitled to compensation.
While back injury compensation may not be able to fix your spinal injury it can help take off some financial pressure and allow you to afford the care and rehabilitation services that you need.
What is a Back Injury?
Back injuries can be very complex, however, can range from mild, persistent lower or upper back pain right through to spinal cord injuries. In many cases, you will need to seek help from a medical specialist who will be able to advise exactly what back injury you have sustained.
Common causes of back injuries include:
- Slips, trips and falls.
- Repeated lifting and carrying heavy objects.
- Workplace accidents caused by unsafe conditions.
- Falling from a height.
- Road accidents.
