About workplace back injury claims
Back injuries and back pain are common causes of work-related absence in the UK, with the Office for National Statistics reporting that musculoskeletal problems accounted for 27.8 million days of sick leave in 2018.
All manner of workers can suffer from a workplace back injury, including those who work in offices, on production lines, and in warehouses, on construction sites, and in health and social care settings.
A workplace back injury is typically caused by lifting heavy items, repetitive activities, or prolonged periods in one position and can lead to discomfort and stiffness in the lower back, muscle spasms, and even long-term mobility issues.
Your employer is responsible for your health and wellbeing in the workplace, and this includes preventing or minimising the risk of back pain and injury. If you’ve injured your back at work and think your employer was at fault, our specialist accident at work solicitors will be able to offer you no obligation advice on how to make a workplace back injury claim.
