Spinal Injury

A spinal injury can be life-changing, often restricting the victim’s quality of life and having a huge impact on their lifestyle. It can also affect the lives of others around them profoundly.

Spinal injuries are a major cause of lost working days in the UK and a common cause of severe disability. They can end careers as well as alter lives permanently.

Why Claim for Spinal Injury?

Money will never be able to erase the life-changing effects a spinal injury can have, but it can cover the costs involved in the impact the injury has on you, especially as these costs will extend into the future.

Making a successful spiral injury claim can help to cover:

  • Loss of earnings, including how this affects your family
  • Medical and rehabilitation expenses
  • Adaptations you need to make to your home
  • Travel and accommodation costs, for going to and from appointments for example
  • The impact of your spinal injury on your social life, including hobbies and interests
  • Your physical pain and suffering.

If you suffer damage to your spinal cord, the consequences can be devastating. The extent of the impact will vary, depending on the severity of the injury, and where on the spine it has occurred.

Generally, the higher up the spine the injury, the greater the impact will be.

Common Types of Spinal Injury

Typical causes of spinal injuries include road accidents and accidents in the workplace. They can also occur as a result of medical negligence.

Common types of spinal injury are: paraplegia, quadriplegia, neck injuries and fractures.

Even if a spinal injury does not result in paralysis, it can still affect mobility significantly and all spinal injuries are painful, affecting sufferers on a daily basis.

The spinal cord is the thing that connects most parts of the body, therefore an injury to it can mean loss of control in various areas.

Along with paralysis, you might have involuntary muscle spasms, loss of bladder or bowel function, and suffer problems with low blood pressure and regulating your body temperature.
