    Successful claims for spinal injury

    Serious spinal injuries can lead to paralysis that can affect the legs or the legs and arms. Functions on major internal organs such as the bladder and the bowel can be affected too. There can be loss of mobility and several people become wheel chair users.

    Clearly, using mobility aids to get around will require some serious adaptations to your home and possibly your garden. If you can return to work, then there will be changes there too; you might face life on a reduced income if you cannot work full time, like you did previously.

    Some spinal injuries are less serious but can still have devastating effects. Spine problems are often referred to as an ‘invisible injury’, with pain that isn’t always visible and tangible to other people. With a broken leg, people sympathise when they see the plaster cast but when you tell people you have a ‘bad back’, what reaction do you get?

    We will assess your eligibility to make a compensation claim with our ’30 second test’. All our customers – no matter what injury they are claiming for – undergo this quick test.

    This looks at liability (who is to blame?), time frame (within the last 3 years) and what medical treatment you received.

    Compensation – serious spinal injury will result in several changes happening to you and your lifestyle, including your home. Specialist spinal injury solicitors will know what to look for and will ascertain further detail from you about the accident and how you have had to adapt.

    The first part of the compensation claim looks at the spinal injury itself. There is a tariff system that operates within the personal injury arena, and so you may find this is a ‘set amount’. Your specialist spinal injury solicitors will advise you further on this.

    The second part takes into the more complex situation of how things have had to change to accommodate the spinal injury you received. This can run into thousands depending on the costs you have had to meet; for example, have you made adaptation in your home? Do you need help around the home? Can you still work? What about rehabilitations and further treatments?

    There are so many questions but you can be confident in the ability of your specialist spinal injury solicitors to advise you every step of the ways. Your spinal injury solicitors will also look to resolve your case in your favour as quickly as possible.
