I suffered a spinal injury at work now I have spinal stenosis. Can I claim for this?

Spinal stenosis is caused by the narrowing of spaces within your spine, which in turn puts pressure on the nerves that move within your spine and therefore causes you pain. Spinal stenosis that is left untreated can mean that cauda equina syndrome can develop, which can have debilitating effects on a person’s day to day life. Spinal stenosis is one of the reasons a person may need spinal surgery after an injury at work. The procedure can cause effective relief by removing part of the vertebra that’s putting pressure on the nerves. If you find yourself suffering from painful spinal stenosis as a result of an accident at work or at the hands of a negligent employer, you should look into making a claim for work-related back injuries.

What can I use my compensation for a spinal injury at work for?

Compensation for a spinal injury at work won’t reverse the effects that your spinal injury at work has had on your day to day life, but it can certainly help with things such as expensive medical bills that you have had to pay for a result of your work-related back injuries as well as compensate for a loss of earnings if you have been unable to work as a result of your condition. Whilst we can’t say exactly how much spinal injury at work compensation you can expect to receive without knowing the full details of your case, you can rest assured that we will strive to achieve the highest amount of compensation that you deserve for your condition. At Stephensons, we recognise just how debilitating a spinal injury can be, and if this was caused in the workplace, you shouldn’t suffer in silence.
