A brief guide to work-related spinal injury claims
Spinal injuries are frequently life-changing. This is because even the smallest seeming of injuries to the spine can lead to significant damage; creating obstacles to mobility and motor function that have the potential to greatly reduce a person's independence, whether it is their ability to climb the stairs, go shopping alone, do simple household chores, work or enjoy sports and leisure activities.
Furthermore, such injuries are rarely short-term. Instead they tend to have long-term effects on a person's mobility and independence.
A work-related spinal injury claim cannot turn back the clock, nor can it lessen the severity of the injury, but it can help reduce the potential for suffering by reducing the financial consequences of injury, alleviating the trauma for both the injured party and his or her family.
However, it is vital for all concerned that a work-related spinal injury claim is commenced at the soonest available opportunity. The Statute of Limitations makes it plain that claimants have three years from the date of accident – or three years from the date of diagnosis – to commence litigation. Any claim outside of this period is likely to be time-barred.
