The first signs of a spinal injury can take place after a work accident, car accident or even during surgery. Spinal cord injuries are likely to become serious and complex since they can involve multiple parts of your body.
Signs of a spinal cord injury might include:
If you suffer a serious spinal cord injury due to someone else’s negligence, then you can claim compensation from them to help with your costs. Examples of this might include a road traffic accident where the driver of the other car was found at fault. It might include a lack of safety provisions in the workplace that caused you to become injured. It might even include a fall from height in a public place due to a lack of handrails or safety precautions. The only requirement to launch a claim for compensation is that the accident was at least partially someone else’s fault.
To start your claim for compensation, get in touch with our expert team of personal injury solicitors who have experience in handling these types of cases. Choosing a No Win No Fee personal injury solicitor will give you the best chance of success and will help you protect yourself against the legal fees that might accrue. We let you know the success fee in advance, so there are no surprises after you sign up.
Speak with our personal injury solicitors and tell them the whole truth. We appreciate that your pain and suffering has caused you a great deal of distress, but do not be tempted to exaggerate the information you provide to us. We need to know the full story so that we can accurately represent you. If you have a child under 18 who has suffered an injury, you can also seek assistance from our personal injury solicitors since you are their guardian.
Our personal injury solicitors can talk you through your options. We will represent you in court and can negotiate a settlement on your behalf.
There is no real way to know in advance what your case will be worth. Courts calculate compensation based on the nature of your injury, the ongoing costs associated with it, your loss of income and any other factors contributing to your case.
