Spinal Injury Claims and Serious Back Injury Claims

A paralysing injury

A spinal or serious back injury is most often caused by damage to the muscles of the back or to the spinal cord itself. In either case, a person is likely to be incapacitated for the duration of the injury and may require therapy or mobility aids during recovery. In more severe cases of spinal injury, partial or complete paralysis may result, putting the person in a position of needing long-term care.

The types of injuries

Back and spinal injuries can differ in nature and degree, from muscular sprains and strains to permanent loss of mobility.

Back injuries of a muscular nature can happen during road accidents, falls or other mishaps. They are usually the result of violent motion causing the muscles and ligaments to extend unnaturally. Symptoms include aches and pain, loss of mobility and spasms, with rehabilitation treatment ranging from heat or ice packs to massage and physiotherapy.

Spinal injuries are the result of injury to the vertebrae (backbone) or spinal cord itself, and the effects can be more devastating. These include loss of sensation and movement, and in more serious cases loss of bladder or bowel control, severe pain and even impaired breathing. These injuries require long-term therapy and surgery.

The effects of spinal or serious back injuries

The effects of these injuries can be wide-ranging, but the impact to your life will often be devastating, from long-term rehabilitation, to modification to your lifestyle, and even lost wages.

We can arrange interim payments for you to help cover your treatment, pay for any adaptations you need to for your car and home, and also help you financially with your everyday expenses. These payments will allow you piece your life back together and start thinking about compensation.
