Spine injury compensation claims
Rebuilding your life after a spinal cord injury
Over 1,000 people each year sustain a spinal cord injury and could seek compensation. The impact of a severe spine injury can turn lives upside down. The whole family will be faced with the challenge of coming to terms with the injury and then re-building their lives. To do so, you will need lots of help and support to first recover, and then secure your financial future.
There is often a stigma attached to bringing a claim for compensation, but by doing so, you give yourself the chance of securing the best possible treatment, rehabilitation, care and support that would otherwise be out of reach. We have experienced, specialist spine injury lawyers to advise you about the merits of bringing a claim and guide you successfully through the process
Support far beyond your spine injury claim
Everything we do is focused on you and your needs. We see our role as not only to recover financial compensation, but to ensure you receive the best possible support and rehabilitation, during and after your claim. Our goal is to help you recover from your injuries and get your life back on track as soon as possible.
Treatment and rehabilitation
A spinal cord injury must be dealt with immediately to achieve the best outcome possible. The shorter the time between the injury and treatment, the better the long-term outcome. We can help you access rehabilitation services and medical treatment from some of the country’s top clinicians. This could include specialist consultants or surgeons, in-patient rehabilitation at a spinal treatment centre and rehabilitation following discharge from hospital.
Accommodation and support
We can explore the options for the accommodation and additional support that you might need, throughout your recovery and beyond. These options need to be flexible, so that you can move to more independent living as you re-learn life skills during the recovery and rehabilitation stages.
Where needed, we can also arrange a bespoke wheelchair that can greatly enhance your mobility, independence and comfort. We can obtain interim payments, so you do not have to wait until the conclusion of the claim to meet the costs of a bespoke wheelchair.
Other financial and legal advice
Clarke Willmott is a full-service law firm, so unlike many other solicitors offering spine injury advice, we can give you expert guidance on any other legal matters arising from your injury, such as employment issues, the purchase of a new home adapted for your independence and managing your financial affairs.
