If you’ve suffered a back injury through no fault of your own – be it through work, in a road accident or as a result of medical negligence – you have every right to make a claim.

Back injuries can have a serious impact on your life, affecting everything from your ability to enjoy sports and hobbies through to your ability to work. Plus, ongoing treatment and therapy can get expensive. Making a claim could not only help cover these costs, but give you a little extra peace of mind during what could be a difficult time of your life.

But how much might you be able to claim for? Let’s take a look.

Back injury claim values

The answer to this question is anything but straightforward, just like back injuries themselves. Every single injury is different and occurred in a slightly different way, which means that, by extension, every injury claim is different too.

With that in mind, it’s impossible to put a ballpark figure on how much you might be eligible to receive without knowing the extent of your injuries and the circumstances in which they occurred.

To give you an idea, back injury settlements can range from £1-2,000 all the way up to £150,000 and beyond. At the lower end of the spectrum are claims for injuries lasting just a few weeks or months. These short-term back injuries can still have a marked impact on your life, but only for a short period – and the settlement amount reflects this.

At the other end of the scale are serious back injuries. These can leave individuals paralysed and impact their bladder and bowel function, among other things, changing their lives permanently. As a result, claims for this type of injury can be settled for tens of thousands of pounds.
