Serious accidents such as a fall from height, a car collision or a sports injury may leave victims suffering from damage to their spines which can lead to paralysis or limited feeling and movement. UK spinal injuries may change a person’s life permanently and so if you have been affected by this type of injury we would urge you to speak to a professional, legal advisor at Accident Advice Helpline today.
Types of spinal injury
An incomplete spinal injury means that the spinal cord has only been partially damaged, meaning that the victim can still retain some feeling and movement depending on the extent of the damage and what part of the spine was affected.
A complete spinal injury is where the spinal cord has been completely severed which eliminates the victim’s function of the body below the injury area. Although it cannot be completely cured, with treatment and physical therapy the victim may regain some function again.
Are you eligible to make a claim for compensation?
If your accident happened in the last three years and you don’t believe you were to blame, contact Accident Advice Helpline. Our advisors will be able to assess whether you are entitled to make a claim and we will ask you some detail about your accident. There is no obligation to make a claim when you call but if your spinal injury was seen by a doctor and we find that someone else was to blame, you could be entitled to a large sum of compensation.
You can also try our claim calculator online to get a quick answer as to whether you have a claim. It only takes 30 seconds and if you do have a claim it can give you a quote as to how much compensation you could be eligible to receive.
