Paralysis Compensation Claims

Paralysis Compensation Claims

Paralysis compensation claims are usually made when this life-changing condition has been caused by a serious injury or illness. It leaves individuals unable to control their movement or detect core senses such as touch and temperature.

Not only does paralysis affect all aspects of day-to-day life, it can leave sufferers dependent on their carers and loved ones for help and support. We specialise in advising, representing and supporting victims of serious, life-changing injuries – throughout their claim and beyond.

We also have strong relationships with care providers, rehabilitation experts and medical advisors who will all strive to help you and give you a better quality of life following your injury.

How long after suffering paralysis can I make a compensation claim?

Most personal injury claims must be made within three years of the date when you suffered your injury.

One exception is if you suffered paralysis before turning 18, which would allow you to claim for the accident until your 21st birthday. All claims involving children under 18 must be handled by an adult – and are subject to different time limits.

If you are claiming on behalf of someone who doesn’t have mental capacity, the time limit of three years does not apply. But if the person was to regain their mental capacity, they would have three years from this date to make a claim.
