    Spinal cord injury claim advice


    Spinal cord injury claim advice

    If you are looking for the best spinal cord injury claim advice, then you have come to the right place. Accident Advice Helpline has helped thousands of people in the UK win compensation for their spinal injuries and we can help you too.

    We have seen the distressing effects that spinal injuries can have on families and understand the trauma associated with these injuries, which is why we strive to ensure that the claims process is as stress-free for you as possible. We will handle all paperwork associated with the claim, leaving you free to recuperate in peace.

    Why claim compensation?

    If you suffer a spinal cord injury you can easily end up partially or completely paralysed, leaving you incapacitated. This can have a devastating effect on your family, especially if you are the main breadwinner.

    Claiming compensation from the person or organisation responsible for your injuries will help bring a sense of justice to the whole situation. Furthermore, the amount you receive should help you recoup any financial expenses you have incurred relating to the incident. The amount paid out should also cover any future expenses you are likely to incur. This might include rehabilitation fees, the cost of purchasing specialised equipment and the cost of modifying your house to suit your needs.

    In short, the compensation you are awarded will help you cope with your new life.

    What evidence is needed to validate a claim?

    If you have sustained a spinal injury due to an accident caused by someone else’s negligence, then you can sue them for compensation. However, it will be up to you to provide evidence that the third party’s actions led to your injuries, which is why you should seek advice from a specialist spinal cord injury solicitor.

    The solicitor will be experienced in handling similar claims to yours and will guide you through the entire claim process. He or she will know precisely what evidence to gather in order to strengthen your compensation claim.

    It is also essential that you retain all the documentation pertaining to your spinal injury. This includes photos of the accident scene (where possible), contact details of any witnesses, copies of medical reports and prescriptions, together with receipts of any financial expenses directly attributable to your injury. Your solicitor will use these to determine the amount of compensation to demand from the defendant.
