The worst kinds of accidents may leave victims fighting for their life or suffering for the rest of their life with a spinal injury. There are many different spinal injury effects which can be detrimental to your quality of life and if you are suffering from any because of someone else’s negligence, we would like to offer you free support and advice about your legal options and potential right to compensation.
Are you eligible to claim?
Were you involved in an accident, at work, at an event or at a place of business in the last three years? Was the accident caused by someone else? Were you left with a serious spinal injury which needed medical attention? If you answered yes, you could be entitled to a large compensation award and Accident Advice Helpline could help you get it. For an estimate of how much compensation you could be awarded you can call our helpline and speak to a friendly and knowledgeable advisor or you can try our claim calculator online.
Spinal injury and spinal injury effects
The type of spinal injury which you are suffering from may include incomplete spinal injuries such as:
- Anterior cord syndrome (front of the spinal cord is damaged)
- Central cord syndrome (central part of the spinal cord is damaged)
- Brown Sequard syndrome (side of the spinal cord is damaged)
- Posterior cord syndrome (back of the spinal cord is damaged)
- Clauda Equina syndrome (damaged nerves in the bottom of the spine)
Or complete spinal injuries:
- Paraplegia (loss of movement and sensation on the body below injury site)
- Tetraplegia (as above but with added loss to arms and legs)
When the spine becomes damaged it can affect the communication between the body and the brain and result in difficulty moving and feeling. If you have been suffering the complications of a spinal injury we would like to speak to you about making a claim against the person or persons who caused your injuries.
