Back injuries are among the most debilitating injuries you can endure because they often have a major impact on your ability to work and undertake normal daily activities.

Examples of back injuries include:

  • Lower back strain or sprain;
  • Fractured vertebrae;
  • Sciatica;
  • Lumbar strain;
  • Herniated disc;
  • Lumbar spinal stenosis;
  • Other back strains and sprains.

Back injuries can occur from:

If your back injury is the result of a motor vehicle accident, then you may have a claim for compensation, regardless of who may have been at fault.

If you injured your back at work, then you may have a claim for workers compensation.

If your back injury is the result of an accident in a public place, such as a fall in a shopping centre or a trip in a car park, then you may be entitled to make a public liability claim for your back injury.

No matter how your back accident occurred, you should contact the experts at Lionheart Lawyers for a free initial consultation. We will listen to you and advise you of everything you may be entitled to.

Lionheart Lawyers have more than 50 years of combined experience in injury law, including back injuries, and are experts at maximising compensation for your back injury claims.

Legal advice for Back Injury Compensation Claims

You should contact Lionheart Lawyers for expert legal advice about your back injury claim if:

  1. Your back injury is recent, and you are unsure of what to do;
  2. You were injured in a motor vehicle accident and the insurer has assessed you as having a ‘threshold’ (minor) injury but you disagree;
  3. Your back injury workers compensation claim was rejected or partly denied by the insurer;
  4. You have already made a claim, but wish to know if you may be entitled to additional benefits, such as a lump sum payout;
  5. You are unsure if you have a valid negligence claim for your back injury.

Our solicitors are vastly experienced in back injury claims and will be able to assist in any of these scenarios or whatever your circumstances may be. We will identify all the claims you are able to make and obtain maximum compensation for your injuries.

We will:

  1. Listen to you to understand how your accident occurred, and how your injuries are affecting your life;
  2. Advise you of all the claims you may be eligible to make;
  3. Gather evidence to support your back injury claim, including medical reports, clinical notes, financial records and other documentation;
  4. Submit your claim to the insurer on your behalf;
  5. If settlement cannot be reached, we will advise you of next steps, which may include court proceedings;
  6. Fight for you every step of the way, to ensure you receive everything you are entitled to.

Making a Negligence Claim for Back Injuries

You may be entitled to a lump sum payment if your back injury is the result of accident caused by negligence.

This may include:

  • Negligence on the part of your employer, if your accident occurred at work; or
  • Negligence on the part of the proprietor of the premises where your accident occurred, such as a shopping centre or supermarket.

To understand if your accident could be the result of negligence, it is best to speak to an expert solicitor at Lionheart Lawyers for personalised advice.

Additionally, you may be entitled to a lump sum payment through your superannuation if your back injury is classified as a total and permanent disability by your TPD insurer. This is in addition to any other claims you may be able to make for your back injury.

Claiming for Back Injuries Sustained at Work

If you have injured your back at work, or your pre-existing back condition has worsened through your job, then you may be entitled to make a claim. Even if your claim has been previously denied by the workers compensation insurer, or you have encountered another difficulty with your back injury claim, you should contact Lionheart Lawyers for advice.

It costs nothing to reach out to our expert team for an initial assessment to check your entitlements regarding your workplace back injury.

Back injury compensation may cover:

  • Lost income (past and future);
  • Medical and treatment expenses;
  • Travel costs;
  • Domestic care;
  • A lump-sum payment for permanent impairment, if your injury is assessed as permanent;
  • Work injury damages lump sum, if your back injury accident was caused by your employer’s negligence;
  • An additional TPD payout through your superannuation insurance, if applicable.

We understand that dealing with back pain, injury and an uncertain future at work is stressful enough without having the additional burden of dealing with insurers, medical assessments and paperwork. Lionheart Lawyers have a highly skilled and compassionate team of solicitors who can manage your workplace back injury claim from start to finish. Our no win, no fee policy gives you peace of mind that we will do everything possible to ensure your claim is successful and you receive all the compensation you deserve.
