If you were involved in a car accident you may have been taken to a spinal injuries unit to be assessed. You may have suffered a broken or fractured spine and you may even have party damaged your spinal cord, or worse, completely severed it. To find out where you stand legally after an unfair accident, contact Accident Advice Helpline today. We help victims to move on from their accidents and get the justice and compensation that they deserve.
Car accidents resulting in paralysis
Car accidents are fairly common and you may not have considered compensation as it is not often the first thing that comes to mind after a horrific accident. Yet, if the accident was not your fault you have the right to claim compensation for any injuries which needed to be seen by a doctor. You may have felt lucky to survive your accident but maybe you are struggling with limited mobility and are now relying on wheelchairs and the help of others.
How can compensation help after a visit to the spinal injuries unit?
Compensation may help with unpaid bills which have been piling up since your accident. You may have suffered a loss of earnings since being unable to go back to work which can have a dramatic effect on your outgoings. If you were not responsible for your accident why should you be left struggling to cope financially?
Compensation may help with private medical costs. You may be seeing a professional for physical or mental therapy following your accident. If you had to cancel bookings made before your accident which you are now unable to attend but also unable to get refunded for, compensation could help reimburse you.
