A T4 spinal cord injury may be serious depending on how badly damaged the area was and whether it is a complete or incomplete, which will determine whether the effects are permanent or may improve with time. If you were injured after an unfair accident you could be entitled to thousands of pounds of compensation. To hear more about your rights and how Accident Advice Helpline can assist, contact our helpline or try our claim test online.
Causes and symptoms of a T4 injury
T4 injuries are often caused by incorrect lifting of heavy items. If the body has to twist, bend or lift excessively, an injury may occur. It can also happen from poor posture or overuse.
The symptoms you may experience include:
- Pain, tingling or numbness in the arms
- Pain in the neck or back
- Pain in the rib cage
- Shoulder blade weakness
If you have experienced any of these you should seek medical attention. A doctor may be able to confirm that you have T4 syndrome and can advise what treatment options are available to you.
How to claim for a T4 spinal cord injury
If the accident which caused your injury was not your fault and it happened in the last three years, you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation. If you sought medical advice for your injuries then contact Accident Advice Helpline to see if you qualify to make a claim. We can tell you quickly what the likelihood of a compensation award could be and we could even give you an estimate of the amount.
Compensation may not be something you have considered and many victims who are entitled to make a claim never do. At Accident Advice Helpline we help victims to put in a claim and in return they could receive hundreds of pounds, thousands of pounds or even more! We also offer a no-win, no-fee* service and there is no obligation to make a claim when you get in touch.
