    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Can I claim for spinal cord injuries?

    As one of the leading names in personal injury law in the UK, we at Accident Advice Helpline receive numerous calls from individuals who wish to make a claim for spinal cord injuries. If you have been involved in an accident and sustained spinal injuries as a result, you might have a valid case for compensation.

    Spinal cord injuries can be caused in a number of ways, including road traffic accidents, sports accidents, workplace accidents, slips, trips or falls. These injuries are usually severe and can lead to partial or total paralysis. The effects of spinal injuries are devastating and can distress the entire family.

    It is for this reason that we advise you to initiate a compensation case against those responsible for causing your injuries.

    Who is responsible for my injury?

    The responsible party in a compensation claim will vary, depending on the details of each individual case. For instance, if you suffered an injury as a result of a workplace accident, your employer may be held accountable for the incident. On the other hand, if you sustained spinal injuries in a road traffic accident, then you can make a claim against the driver who caused the accident.

    To ensure that your claim is successful, you need to provide proof against the guilty party in the compensation case. This will help you win the full compensation payout that you deserve.

    Is my claim for spinal cord injuries eligible?

    Your claim is likely to be valid if you meet the following criteria:

    • You were in no way responsible for the accident that led to your spinal injury.
    • You initiated the compensation claim within the stipulated time limit. The law in the UK requires claims to be filed within three years of the incident. However, some exceptions to this rule exist.
    • You sustained injuries and received medical care for them.

    You can confirm the eligibility of your claim using the 30-second calculator on our website. This calculator will also indicate the estimated value of your claim.
