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.

Our Paralysis Claims Experts

How much will my claim cost?

All paralysis cases taken on by Hudgell Solicitors are handled on a no win no fee basis. This means that you will not have to pay any money up front and there will be no financial risk if your case is unsuccessful.

If your case is successful, you will only be expected to pay a contribution to your solicitor’s fees once the case has been resolved. The costs paid are usually a percentage of the compensation awarded and will be agreed before your case is carried out.

FAQs

How do I claim for an injury leading to paralysis?

We will tell you immediately if we feel you could have a claim to pursue, and our expert personal injury solicitors will guide you through the process in a friendly, supportive and easy to understand manner.

How compensation for paralysis can help you

If you feel your injury was the fault of somebody else, be it an employer or otherwise, you should seek advice from our expert team of personal injury solicitors about making a claim for paralysis compensation.

Our caring approach to legal advice allows us to give our clients a great deal of time and commitment, ensuring you get the best possible outcome in your case.

We will focus on getting you the compensation that will make your life easier and more manageable, and we recognise the difficulties you face every day.

Compensation can help you recover loss of earnings from your injury, both now and in the future, and money can also help make vital adaptations to your home to live more comfortably.

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.

How to claim compensation for an injury leading to paralysis
