We are experts in securing compensation for clients who have suffered traumatic spinal cord injuries as a result of accidents that were not their fault, to pay for rehabilitation, adaptations to their home, the cost of care and support, loss of future earnings and therapies.

Types of Spinal Cord Injuries

Spinal cord injuries are almost always very serious and result in some kind of restriction in the ability to move or feel (paralysis). The exact location and severity of the damage are the two main factors that determine any resulting disability which can include paralysis in the arms, legs, torso or impaired breathing and body functions.

  • Cervical - Relates to areas around the neck and head with injury usually result in full or partial tetraplegia or quadriplegia (loss of use to limbs and torso).
  • Thoracic - Commonly referred to as the area between the head and abdomen. Injuries in this region of the spine usually result in paraplegia (loss of use to lower limbs).
  • Lumbosacral - The area around the lower back, abdomen and pelvic region. Spinal injuries here can decrease control of the legs, hips and urinary system.
  • Cauda Equina Syndrome - Is a condition where nerves at the base of the spinal cord become compressed resulting in damage to the nerves controlling the bladder and bowel.

Experienced Spinal Cord Injury Solicitors

Injuries to the spine can occur in a variety of circumstances, including road accidents, accidents at work or whilst playing sport. Through no fault of their own, an injured person may be left temporarily or permanently paralysed.

We handle spinal injury claims within our complex injury team and one of our experienced solicitors will establish a unique understanding of the injured person's circumstances and needs.

  • From here we will establish any immediate and ongoing medical needs and create a comprehensive claim that covers the cost of all current and future care.
