How much compensation money for a Back Injury?


The amount of compensation you will receive from a back injury will depend how severe the injury is. The damages will be in the region of £4,575 to £46,000. Very Severe cases of back injuries where there is no involvement of paralysis but where there may be consequences of impotence or double incontinence the amount of compensation you could claim would be in the region of £58,500 to £98,500. With cases where the consequences are impaired bladder and bowel function, severe sexual difficulties and unsightly scarring with the possibility of future surgery the amount could be in the region of £46,300.

With disc lesions or fractured discs that despite treatment are still causing severe pain and discomfort, impaired agility, impaired sexual function, depression, personality change, and alcoholism could see you being awarded between £22,650 to £40,750. The risk of arthritis and not being employable will also be taken into consideration. In moderate cases where there is less severity the amount you could be entitled too would be in the region of £16,300 to £22,650. This is for a wide range of injuries including crush fracture of the lumbar vertebrae where there is a large risk of osteoarthritis and constant pain and discomfort. Traumatic spondylolisthesis with constant pain and the probability that spinal fusion will be needed is another, as is a case of a prolapsed intervertebral disc.

There are some moderate back injuries where the injuries to the back such as disturbance of ligaments and muscles will give the person headaches. The amount you receive will depend upon the severity of the original injury and whether there is some permanent or chronic disability, the award bracket is between £7,125 and £16,300.

Sprains and strains, disc prolepses and soft tissue injuries where a full recovery is likely the amount you get will depend of the time of the recovery and how long the injury was giving discomfort. A recovery within about 5 years the amount you could receive would be in the region of £4,575 to £7,125, but a recovery within 2 years would give you up to £4,575. If any of these describes your injury and you believe the accident was not your fault then you should claim compensation. No win no fee (Conditional fee agreements) were first introduced in 1995 when legal aid was still available for personal injury cases. The reason it was introduced was to give the people with incomes above legal aid eligibility limits the chance to fund personal injury litigation. People whose income was just about the limit were still finding it difficult to pay for a solicitor. This “no win no fee” agreement eventually became available to fund most civil cases and the consequence of this was that legal aid was abolished 2000. Contrary to popular belief there has not been a compensation boom, in fact the number of claims has dropped since this time.

So if you have damaged your back and have suffered as a result you should be seeking out an accident claims solicitor. Ignore the stigma attached, and find yourself a solicitor that offers free impartial advice and one that has years of experience dealing with accident claims.
