Spinal Injury Compensation: How Much Can You Claim?
In our professional experience, our solicitors and lawyers state that compensation for spinal injuries will typically be a lot more than your average personal injury claim, due to the unique and debilitating nature of spinal nerve damage and spinal cord injuries.
When we process your spinal injury claim for compensation we take a number of factors into account. This includes items such as how much pain and suffering you have endured, any medical costs, future rehabilitation costs, how much will need to be spent on nursing and disability aids, any forms of equipment that needs to be purchased as well as loss of earnings for your and your family. Loss of earnings is particularly important if you are in the situation where you will not be able to return to work due to a spinal injury.
Our spinal injury solicitors are extremely experienced in dealing with spinal injury compensation claims. We advise that you only ever deal with a lawyer, like those at our disposal, who are well-versed and practiced in spinal cord injury claims. A spinal injury claims solicitor will work with you to recover as much money as possible for you when it comes to getting the compensation that you deserve. Our lawyers and solicitors have been responsible for settling cases that range from one hundred thousand pounds up to the millions.
If you have not yet taken action, then we implore you to call us today so that we can start your spinal injury claim as soon as possible. The longer that you leave it the more difficult it gets to claim the full amount of compensation that you are due for your injuries.
Why Make a Spinal Cord Injury Claim?
If you, or someone in your family has had an accident that has resulted in an injury to their spine, then it can be a defining and life-changing moment. Everyday tasks and activities can be severely impacted, or in the worst case scenarios can become completely impossible.
If a third party was to blame for your spinal injury, then you should be looking to claim for compensation. We won’t lie and say that a monetary pay-out is going to make everything better, but it will at least make your life and the life of your family and carers much easier.
What Will the Compensation Be Used For?
By claiming for spinal injury compensation, and winning the case (which our solicitors and lawyers are experts at doing, with an excellent track record) then you can benefit from the following when you receive a compensation pay-out.
- Travel costs, for example hospital and support group visits
- Private health care, therapy and rehabilitation sessions (the best possible treatment)
- Home customisation such as lifts in the bath, stair lifts, and ramps
- An adapted car which has been designed to accommodate your injuries
- Money to compensate for suffering endured, and immediate or long-term pain
- Compensation for loss of earnings if you cannot work, or return back to your job

What is Spinal Cord Injury?
Also known as an SCI, spinal cord injury refers to damage to the spinal cord that occurred due to an injury or accident. It does not include disease-related deterioration. The symptoms will be different from sufferer to sufferer, and will range from paralysis to incontinence. Those suffering from a spinal cord injury could be still able to lead a normal life, whilst in more severe cases can have a complete loss of function in the spine. For more complete definitions please refer to the work done by the American Spinal Injury Association (below you can see how they classify these types of injuries.
In terms of treatment, our spinal injury solicitors will arrange for excellent medical care and rehabilitation. Treatment types again can vary, but will typically include restraining of the spine, and methods in which to ensure that the inflammation can be controlled as painlessly and effectively as possible. Most forms of spinal injury will need a long rehabilitation period and physio. These will all be handled by your allotted spinal injury claims solicitor when we take charge of your spinal cord injury claim. We also help hundreds of people in the UK to make head injury claims.
With nerve damage there can be a wide array of symptoms. Which ones you may have depends on the location and type of nerves that are affected. Damage can occur to nerves in your brain and spinal cord. It can also occur in the peripheral nerves, which are located throughout the rest of your body including the neck (we can also tell you how much for a neck injury compensation claim).
What Are the Symptoms of Spinal Nerve Damage?
Another spinal claim that we often get asked about is related to nerve damage. This is one of the most common spinal injury compensation claims that we process and help UK clients with. If you are suffering from any of the following symptoms, then you could be affected and might be able to make a claim with us.
- Sweating more than usual
- Feeling like you are lightheaded
- Have a dry mouth and/or dry eyes
- Suffer from constipation and/or bladder dysfunction
- Feeling weaker in your back and spine
- Wasting away of muscle
- Twitches, prickling, and tingles in your back and spine
- Paralysis on a complete or minor level
- Pain, sensitivity, and numbness in the affected area
- Burning sensations in your back leading to back injury compensation claims
- Loss of balance
If you are suffering from any of these factors, then please seek medical attention for a professional diagnosis. We cannot offer medical advice over the telephone, but can act on your behalf for spinal injury claims once you have been completely assessed by a doctor or physician.
We will endeavour to make sure that your rehabilitation is as quick and as comfortable as possible when recovering from spinal injuries. Our solicitors and lawyers will make sure that the relevant authorities get in touch with you during your recovery from spinal nerve damage, a spinal cord injury, or any other spinal-related injury that you have suffered. However, there are some websites which contain a wealth of information which you might like to look at during the recovery period.
