Back Injury Compensation

Suffering a back injury at work is quite common, even in workplaces that don’t require a lot of lifting or pulling. In fact, according to Safe Work Australia, back injuries comprise 18% of all workers’ compensation claims. If your accident occurred at work and was caused by your employer in some way, either directly or indirectly, you may be eligible for back injury compensation.

Back injuries can be caused in a number of ways, from pushing, pulling, or lifting heavy items to a slip or fall. These injuries may occur as a result of a single traumatic accident, or as a result of repeated straining, bending, or other motions. An experienced back injury lawyer can assess your injury and determine whether you’ll be able to claim any back injury compensation.

It’s your employer’s responsibility to provide the correct safety equipment, training, and a safe and secure working environment for employees to function safely at work each day. A back injury at work can often be caused by unsafe equipment, slips from leaks or unsafe or uneven flooring, road accidents, or simply a lack of education about safe work practices. If your back injury at work is serious, you might be suffering from broken bones or soft tissue injuries that can cause serious long-term complications.

It’s very common for workers to seek compensation payouts for back injuries in Australia, as these funds can be instrumental in the employee’s ability to recover, helping to cover any medical or rehabilitation expenses, time off work, or other costs incurred resulting from their injury.

Frequently Asked Questions

You’ve probably seen a lot of lawyers use the term ‘No Win, No Fee’. Long story short: you only pay us when you achieve a successful outcome. So if you don’t get paid, we don’t get paid.

Let’s break it down.

  • We start by reviewing your claim in detail and give you a clear assessment of your prospects for success. We’re experts in compensation law, so we can give you an accurate assessment of your claim.
  • Once we’ve established that you should pursue your claim, you can tell us if you want us to proceed as your legal representatives. To formally appoint us as your legal representative, you will enter into a ‘Conditional Costs Agreement’ with us. This is a legal contract that sets out the likely costs of running your claim based on our fees, as well as the rights and responsibilities of you as the client and us as your legal representatives.
  • We’ll explain it clearly and thoroughly, with as little legal speak as possible – we promise you’ll understand it completely.
  • Importantly, this agreement will set out the ‘No Win, No Fee’ arrangement in black and white. This specifies that you will not pay us anything if your claim is not successful. Our ‘No Win, No Fee’ agreement also covers you for disbursements, or outlays. These are expenses that we may need to pay to progress your claim, including medical reports, expert witness fees and barristers’ fees.
  • In certain circumstances, you may be required to pay the other party’s legal costs if you are unsuccessful.
  • Remember, your success rests on you providing us with an honest, comprehensive account of all matters relevant to your claim.
