Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) resulting from an accident? Make a ‘no win, no fee’ claim
If you have suffered a spinal cord injury (SCI), the result of an accident that was not your fault, then you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation. Spinal cord injuries can occur for a variety of reasons and are often such that there may be subsequent problems or pain with movement. One common misconception is that the neck, for example, if broken will leave the accident victim unable to regain movement. This is not the case. The neck can be broken without affecting the spinal cord however the spinal cord itself is susceptible if the nerves or vertebrae are damaged. The spine is surrounded by a number of bones which offer some protection and can heal if broken but damage to the nerves and vertebrae beyond the spinal column can lead to difficulties with mobility. Accident Advice Helpline and our no win no fee solicitors in Market Rasen and across the UK are experienced and knowledgeable in dealing with such cases.
Impaired movement and spinal cord damage – ‘no win, no fee’ Market Rasen lawyers can help
We take movement for granted and any difficulty moving can be life changing especially if it results in pain. Spinal cord injury (SCI) is split into two – incomplete and complete. Incomplete allows for some movement of the limbs, neck etc. But this is limited. There may be feeling in parts of the body that do not allow for movement. Complete does not allow for any movement at all and ultimately means that the victim of the accident will suffer from paralysis. It is worth noting also that damage to the spinal cord not only causes impaired movement but can also have a domino effect on other parts of the body such as the bladder, kidneys and bowel. Problems with blood pressure may also arise. Accident Advice Helpline and our no win no fee Market Rasen solicitors deal with compensation claims which have arisen from just such injuries.
