Spinal cord injury compensation following an accident
A spinal cord injury, or any kind of injury to the back, can have a dramatic effect on your life. If you have sustained the injury in a non-fault accident, you can and should claim personal injury compensation from the insurance company of the person who was responsible for the accident. Compensation can be a lifeline to help you rebuild your life following a spinal cord injury.
In many cases no amount of money can sufficiently compensate you if you have suffered a spinal cord injury or back injury. If you have suffered an injury of this nature, financial recompense is just one of the factors that need to be taken into consideration following a spinal cord injury. You may also need advice on range of areas, including: employment, DSS benefits, pensions, insurance and investments.
Our solicitors specialise in dealing with injuries to the back and spinal cord and can ensure you receive the best possible settlement for your personal injury claim. As well as the financial considerations, we will ensure your treatment and rehabilitation needs are met, through access to the country’s top specialists and treatment centres. We will ensure your rights as a disabled person are fully protected.
If you have suffered a spinal cord injury or back injury we can help you:
- Claim compensation for pain and suffering
- Claim for loss of amenity (being able to carryout your usual, day-to-day activities)
- Arrange specialist equipment or vehicles
- Organise modifications to your home or even purchasing a new home any ongoing or future care needs you may have
- If you are unable to return to your job due to the injury, we will ensure you
are compensated for this too
- Obtain interim payments for accommodation, buying equipment and setting up care regimes
- And, when your claim is won, we will advise on investing your compensation and setting up special trusts to protect your benefits
Where liability can be established early on we can obtain interim payments to fund care and housing which are so essential in the early stages after a spinal cord injury and which the statutory authorities have difficulty providing.
As you see, there is a lot we can do to help you following a spinal cord injury or back injury. Let’s now come onto costs.
The cost of making a claim
You and your family may well be daunted by the prospect of pursuing a personal injury claim of this nature and not have the financial means to fund your claim yourself. We would take your case on under our no-risk, no win no fee arrangement, so you would be protected from costs at all times. We will not require you to make any payment up front, nor will we take a percentage of your compensation. If your spinal cord injury claim is successful, we can claim our costs and fees in addition to your compensation. If your claim is unsuccessful you will be fully protected from costs. See no-risk, no win no fee for more information...
How much compensation will I get?
As the circumstances and nature of injuries can vary vastly between clients, at the outset of your claim we can only give you a broad idea of the compensation you will be awarded, but may well be in the region of £1-3 million. Once we know the full details of your accident and the extent of your injuries, we will be able to put you a more accurate figure.
