Compensation for back injury – the most important aspects
Spinal injuries are one of the most frequently sustained injuries. Therefore, it is worth protecting yourself properly both when staying in the country and abroad, as back injuries can arise from many different situations. Because of this, a lot of people purchase accident insurance, which is very helpful when somebody is injured due to slipping and falling. If you have this type of policy, you can claim compensation from the insurer with whom you paid premiums. However, if you suffered a back injury but did not have such insurance, it does not mean that you cannot claim compensation. If you have suffered a back injury in the UK in an accident at work or a traffic collision that was not your fault, you can claim compensation from the person who is responsible for the accident. If you have private insurance and you are injured in an accident that is somebody else’s fault you can claim compensation from two sources. Which ever insurer you make a claim against, you will need to comply with the policy regarding compensation payments and prove any losses you have suffered due to the accident. As such you should seriously consider heading over your case to lawyers with experience in this field.
