Our expert spinal injury lawyers will provide you with free initial advice on your compensation claim and with our No Win No Fee agreements there's no financial risk to you if you're unsuccessful*.
If you or a loved one has suffered a spinal injury, perhaps in an accident, you will know how much your life has changed. Things that you once took for granted, like going to the shops, getting into the shower or climbing into bed will now take a huge amount of effort and energy, or may not even be possible. You will face new barriers going about your everyday business like working, driving or recreational activities.
If someone else is to blame for causing your spinal injury, you may want to seek compensation. That money will not make everything right again, but it will make life a lot easier. It can:
- Pay for adaptations to your home (e.g. ramps, bath lifts, hoists, extensions)
- Pay for a car that you can drive and/or access easily
- Compensate you for the fact that you have lost wages, or cannot return to work
- Pay for private health care to make sure you receive the best treatment without delay
- Compensate you for your pain and suffering
- Pay for any expenses you have had to pay for, such as travel costs to and from hospital appointments
- Above all, secure rehabilitation and therapy to help maximise your independence
