    What are the signs of a spinal injury?

    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:

    • Extreme back pain that doesn’t go away with regular medication
    • Difficulty in walking straight
    • Difficulty in getting to your feet
    • Loss of balance
    • Muscular pain in your back or neck
    • Loss of bowel and/or bladder control
    • Tingling and/or numbness in your hands and feet

    Can you claim compensation for a spinal cord injury?

    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.

    How much compensation will you get for a spinal cord injury?
