Finding an accident solicitor in Berkeley for your spinal cord injury claim
Increasingly, older people suffer serious injuries when involved in falls. Slips, trips and falls are among the most common accidents that are caused by somebody else’s negligence. If your elderly parent suffered a spinal cord injury in a fall that could have been prevented if somebody had done their duty and repaired paving stones, resurfaced the road in your village or put up a warning notice, when water was spilled across a supermarket or restaurant floor, then your parent can claim compensation for their spinal cord injury.
Accident victims qualify for personal injury claims, if:
- the accident was caused by somebody else
- the accident happened within the last 3 years
If your parent had an accident in the Berkeley area and you are seeking the services of a no win no fee* accident solicitor locally, you may experience problems finding somebody taking on your parent’s claim, especially if it is not a straightforward case, where the defendant is likely to accept liability without the intervention of the Courts.
Where do you find an accident solicitor in Berkeley willing to take on the case, if the local high street won’t furnish one?

Spinal Cord Injury
There are some 40,000 people in the UK who suffer from spinal cord injuries. Their symptoms can vary considerably. Some accident victims are paralysed and use a wheelchair to get about; other spinal cord injury victims suffer from incontinence but are still able to move about. Spinal cord injuries are invariably the result of major trauma such as motor accidents, bad falls, violent attacks and sports accidents.
Even incomplete spinal cord injury can have an enormous impact on a family. The accident victim may still have a range of motor function, but may be in permanent pain. The home may have to be adapted to allow wheelchair access to all important parts of the house or families have to move to a different home, if adaption of their existing one is too expensive or not practical.
Any expenses your family incurred because of your parent’s spinal cord injury can be reclaimed from the defendant. An accident solicitor in Berkeley will advise you which bills, receipts and invoices should be included in your claim.
