Spinal Injury Claims *
There are two parts of the body that are very vulnerable in an accident. The two areas are the Brain and The Spine. When we talk about the Spine you have to remember that there is no such thing as a minor Spinal injury. Just a minor injury to the spine may have such a severe effect that it is life changing for the victim, not just for you the injured one but also for your loved ones, dependents and friends. Major obstacles will come into your life when there is an attempt to do straightforward tasks that once came automatically.
Going to the shops, performing household chores, getting into bed, having fun with the kids or moving in the shower may now require much thought and some amazing manoeuvring. Some tasks could even be impossible. Indeed virtually nothing can compensate you for what you will have to go through, taking a Personal injury claim could at a stroke help your finances for you and your loved ones and help make all of your lives a lot easier.
As for the impact of a spine injury and its ongoing consequences, you must get the correct Spinal injury claims legal advice in order that you do not mess up on your right to make a claim due to a silly legal technicality.
If there is anything worse than Spinal injuries as, it is the fact that Spinal injuries are almost never short term. Most Spinal injuries tend to have unfortunately long term, very often lifelong implications for everyone involved. As with Brain injuries claims the taking out of a Spinal injury claim by you, without the right legal advice is just not on.
Do not go down the solo route if your Spine injury was caused by the fault of clinical negligence or maybe caused by an accident and the Personal injury was caused by someone else, you should still take on a medical negligence solicitor
After you have filed your claim, you will get a very strong Defence from the third party who, even if they are aware that they are to blame, will mount a rigorous defence to proclaim their innocence – a tactic widely used by the HSE and the majority of Defendants. Depending on the extent of your injuries and especially your lack of mobility and the amount of care you will require, you may be able to claim compensation for:
- Making relevant changes to your home such as stair and bath lifts, ramps outside and inside
- Lost wages or salary, which could be either temporary or permanent
- Hiring staff either full or part time to look after you
- To purchase the right mobility aids or equipment and a wheelchair where necessary
The cost of medical expenses, for medicine, surgery, physiotherapy, rehab, hospital visits and the expense of travel back and forth to the hospital
Intangible it is and it is not easy to put a value on it, but you need to be aware that you may have the right to claim for your pain and suffering. Claims for spinal injuries could be a very substantial figure, but only an experienced Personal Injury solicitors will be capable in getting you the best result as quickly as possible.
