We understand the challenges of spinal cord injuries

Every spinal cord injury is serious, and some will be life-changing. Many spinal cord injury patients require special care and rehabilitation and in some cases adapted or new property.

As spinal injury solicitors who have secured substantial compensation payments for many people who've suffered a spinal cord injury, we understand the far-reaching changes that a spinal cord injury can mean to you and your family.

We also understand the importance of seeking interim payments in advance of a final settlement, to enable rehabilitation, household bills and even specially adapted housing to be paid for.

How much compensation can I claim for a spinal cord injury?

Naturally, every spinal cord injury is different, and the final amount of compensation awarded is based on factors including the cost of long-term care and loss of earnings as well as the loss of mobility.

However, where spinal cord injuries result in paraplegia or tetraplegia, and are someone else is at fault, compensation payments in the millions of pounds are not uncommon. Our spinal injury solicitors can even help you claim compensation for any necessary house adaptations needed to get you life back on track.

How am I going to pay for long-term care?

One of the biggest worries for spinal injury patients and their families is about how long-term care will be funded. So it's important to understand that the cost of long-term care, medical costs, rehabilitation and aftercare over your entire lifetime is part of the overall calculation for the spinal injury compensation settlement.

We also strive to ensure that all your rehabilitation and other expenses such as necessary modifications to your home are taken care of as part of your spinal injury claim.
