Back Injury Compensation
It is possible to claim for personal compensation for a bad back in Southampton. If our solicitors can prove that your injuries and back complaints are a direct result of someone else’s negligence then there potentially is a claim to answer.
Back Injury Claims Southampton
In most cases that will fall under a few categories:
- Your back was injured and hurt in an accident
- You have back pain due to your work or employer
- Medical or clinical negligence
Essentially if we can prove that the injury or pain is not your fault, and is due to the actions of a third party, another person, car driver, employer, company, or business, then you could be due back injury compensation.
