Spinal injuries

Spinal injuries have a big impact on people because they are so distressing and have long term implications. Spinal injuries can occur as a result of road accidents, clinical negligence, sporting accidents and accidents at work, in many cases being in some part due to some else’s negligence. Spinal injuries tend to lead to higher levels of compensation than other types of injury as many injuries result in some form of paralysis which will have a serious impact on quality of life.

For anyone with a serious spinal injury, early rehabilitation is essential. Your specialist lawyer will be able to find the most suitable rehabilitation centre for you to help get your life back on track as soon as possible.

Other costs such as the cost of life-long care need to be taken into account when making a claim for compensation. It is imperative that your specialist lawyer ensures that you receive sufficient compensation to restore your life to what it was as much as they possibly can. Your specialist lawyer will also provide for your long-term future, including loss of your pension from work.

Causes of spinal injuries

  • Road traffic accidents
  • Construction site accidents

  • Lifting or moving heavy objects - most common in the workplace where inadequate training or lack of a risk assessment can result in injury
