    How to claim spinal injury compensation


    Anyone who suffers some kind of spinal injury must receive appropriate medical care urgently if they are to recover. An injury to the spine has the potential to paralyse the person involved. This may mean they are paralysed from the waist down or from the neck down, to give a couple of examples.

    A spinal injury can change someone’s life in mere seconds. One moment they may be carrying on with their work, or driving somewhere in their car, and the next they might be unable to feel anything in one or more parts of their body. It is quite sobering to think just how much someone’s life could change in this instance.

    What are the odds of winning spinal injury compensation?

    Obviously if you have received an injury that involves paralysis or a lack of mobility of any kind, there is a chance you could claim compensation of this kind. However, the main crux of the issue is this – you must be able to prove that someone else was at fault for letting this injury happen. This might mean someone was driving without due care and attention and hit your car, or ran into you while you were crossing the road.

    It may also mean someone was negligent in the workplace in causing your accident to happen. For example this could involve a lack of risk assessments that may have identified the hazard that caused your injury to occur. It might also involve a lack of attention to other health and safety matters that could have made all the difference. Your injury may never have happened in the first place if proper care had been taken to begin with.

    Could you claim a sum of money in spinal injury compensation?

    Any accident that results in a spinal injury occurring to someone involved has the potential to result in a compensation claim being made if the person can prove negligence was involved. This means they must prove the person was negligent in their actions, and that those actions led to the injury occurring.
