Back Injury

Accident At Work

The claimant was a 45 year old man who sustained a severe back injury whilst at work. During the course of his employment the man was injured when a forklift truck reversed, knocking him to the ground. The man brought an accident at work claim against his employer alleging that it was negligent in its health and safety duties towards its employees.

The claimant sustained a Back Injury as a result of the accident and unable to return to his previous employment and needed to improve his qualifications to enhance possible job prospects. He also suffered from chronic back pain. Evidence from a medical expert provided to the court showed that the man had suffered degenerative changes, however after a pain management course the pain should relinquish.



The worker instructed a specalist personal injury solicitor to deal with the case on his behalf. The court awarded the claimant £195,831 for the back injury he suffered at work.
