Making a Spinal Injury Claim
Spinal injuries which have occurred as the result of an accident are very different from a standard personal injury compensation claim – because many contributing factors have to be taken into account when assessing the case. This includes the long-term impact on the individual and their family, their needs at home and loss of earnings – as they may not be able to work again.
Our solicitors are serious injury specialists, with years of case-handling experience, and they’ll will happily provide you with a comprehensive and detailed breakdown of how your claim will be handled.

The severity of a spinal cord injury (SCI) depends on many factors. But an SCI is in fact a clinical emergency, a progressive disorder and a chronic condition.
A ‘complete’ spinal cord injury is where the damage sustained impacts on the entire width, resulting in no functionality, muscle sensation or control.
An ‘incomplete’ SCI does not spread across the whole spinal cord and therefore leaves an element of function intact. Sometimes this will result in one side of the body being more affected than the other.
Specific types of injuries include:
Compensation amounts can vary according to each individual case. However, the final settlement amount awarded for a spinal injury or spinal cord injury is usually a lot higher than an average personal injury claim.
