Spinal Injuries in the UK
According to new estimates by the Spinal Injury Association and Aspire, the leading UK charities for victims of spinal injuries, it is thought as many as 2,500 people each year are diagnosed with a new spinal related injury, not the 1,200 people as previously thought.
Some of the most common causes of spinal injuries have been identified as serious road traffic accidents, crushing and falling injuries at work, falls at home and due to other illness which can lead to paralysis, including cancer and Cauda Equina Syndrome.
Compensation for Spinal Injuries
The spinal injury solicitors at Nigel Askew can help you claim compensation if the circumstances which led to the accident were not your fault. We can help you claim compensation which could help you and your family support your long term care and recovery.
The amount of compensation you may expect to receive will depend on a number of factors including the severity of your injuries, your long term care requirements and whether you will be able to return to full time employment.
All successful claims may include compensation for the following:
- Compensation for your injuries and pain and suffering
- Compensation for loss of earnings, past, present and future as a result of the accident
- Compensation for adaptations that are required to your home
- Compensation for new transport requirements
- Private healthcare and rehabilitative costs and therapy
Types of Spinal Injury
Spinal injuries can be categorised into two main types of injury, complete and incomplete. A complete spinal injury causes permanent damage to the area of the spinal cord and leads to Paraplegia or Tetraplegia.
In contrast to a complete spinal cord injury, an incomplete spinal injury can lead to paralysis with a partial loss of body functions, such as basic motor skills and sensations.
Our expert solicitors are able to advise you on all types of spinal injury claims.
