    Claiming for a level 2 spinal cord injury


    Vertebrae, the spinal cord, thoracic, cervical, lumbar… these are all words used in association with the spine and its composite parts. If someone experiences an injury to their spinal cord, regardless of the area of their spine that has been injured, they will be assessed on the level of their injury. If you have sustained a level 2 spinal cord injury, you should seek advice on whether you can claim any compensation for what has happened to you.

    Spinal injuries are considered and assessed as per the severity of the injury and where in the spine it has occurred. The upper part of the spine is the cervical region, the middle section is the thoracic region and the lower section is the lumbar region. An injury to any of these sections can result in permanent symptoms and possibly paralysis. The prognosis can be more serious the higher the injury has occurred, because more of the spinal cord may be affected.

    Coping with your level 2 spinal cord injury

    Suffering any damage to your spine or spinal cord can potentially mean a big change for you. Many patients must come to terms with paralysis and possibly with the need to use a wheelchair from that moment on. They may spend many months in hospital and need ongoing care.

    You may already know there are many emotional and psychological changes to come to terms with, alongside the physical changes. Everyday life will change and it can take a long time to come to terms with this. If your injury occurred because of the actions of another person, perhaps in an accident for example, this can be hard to deal with. It can also impact you financially.
