    Compensation for living with a spinal cord injury


    Suffering from a spinal cord injury can not only be painful and uncomfortable to live with but it can also have a knock-on effect with your everyday life. You may be unable to carry on working, or taking part in leisure or fitness activities. Have you had to cancel holidays or other plans which have been booked months in advance and already been paid for? If you want to find out more about compensation for spinal cord injuries, contact Accident Advice Helpline today.

    Did an accident cause your injury?

    If an accident which was not your fault caused your spinal injury then you could well be entitled to compensation for your pain and suffering. You may have experienced a spinal cord injury after one of the following types of accident:

    • Car crash
    • A fall from height (e.g. ladder)
    • A slip, trip or fall
    • Being hit by a moving object or vehicle
    • Items falling on you
    • Manual handling accident
    • Machinery accident
    • Sports accident

    If you believe your accident was caused by one these situations or that something else caused your pain, contact a member or our team to find out what compensation you could be entitled to.

    How to make a claim for a spinal cord injury

    If you have been in an accident we will need to find out who is to blame. If you are not sure who was responsible but you don’t believe the accident was entirely your fault, call us so that we can help establish who is responsible for your injuries. In order to qualify, your accident must have happened in the last three years and you must have sought medical attention for your injuries. If you have witnesses or photographs of the accident or injuries these can also help your case.

    To see if you qualify and to make a claim, contact Accident Advice Helpline online or over the phone. Our advisors can answer your questions and give you as much information about your available options.
