Back Injury Claims

Spinal injuries are among the most severe and life-changing injuries that can be sustained as a result of an accident. Due to the devastating nature of many spinal injuries, taking legal action to claim compensation can be complex and requires an elevated level of skill and expertise.

If you plan on making a claim for a spinal injury, it is crucial that you are represented by expert solicitors to ensure that you get the compensation you deserve. To make a personal injury claim following a spinal cord injury, contact us today using our online contact form.

Spinal Injuries

Due to the sensitive nature and the importance of the spine, even a minor injury can have a significant impact on your everyday life. The most serious types of spinal injury include tetraplegia and quadriplegia, both of which can have a significant impact not only on your life, but also the lives of your loved ones. For this reason, tetraplegia and paraplegia claims attract high levels of compensation and thus require a specialist solicitor to ensure you are compensated for all areas in which you have suffered loss.

Quadriplegia, sometimes referred to as tetraplegia, refers to a spinal cord injury above the first thoracic vertebra. Such an injury often results in a degree of paralysis in all four limbs. The injury can often be so severe that it can affect breathing and lead to extreme difficulties throughout your life.

Paraplegia occurs in spinal cord injuries below the first thoracic spinal levels with those suffering such injuries usually being able to use their arms and their hands. The extent of such injuries in paraplegia differs greatly and can depend on the seriousness of the initial injury.

While the above injuries are the most common spinal cord injuries, not all spinal cord injuries result in tetraplegia or paraplegia with lower spinal cord injuries often causing varying issues.

Many types of accidents can cause spinal cord injury, and often people sustain spinal cord injuries as a result of negligence on behalf of another. If this describes your circumstances, and your injury was at least partially caused by the fault of another, you could be entitled to make a personal injury claim and claim compensation for your loss.
