Types of spinal injury?
Back and spinal injuries are very serious. A back injury can range from damaged muscles to broken bones and sometimes even damage to the spinal cord. The spinal cord is made of nerves that keep us upright, as well as helping us to move, breathe and stay balanced. Injuries to the spinal cord can be extremely serious, sometimes leading to paralysis in a number of limbs and causing restrictions to movement, such as limiting people from walking.
Back injuries can occur in many diverse ways such as road traffic accidents, accidents at work, including those involving dangerous machinery and sporting accidents. Back and spinal injuries can also occur as a result of clinical negligence. Whatever the reason, if you have suffered serious injury through the fault of another party you could be entitled to spinal cord injury compensation.
The severity of a back or spinal injury can often depend on which part of the back is injured; for example, sometimes if the higher part of the back is damaged, the consequences can be more serious. Our spinal injury lawyers will ensure your injuries are carefully evaluated by specialist medical professionals in order for us to offer the best strategy for your recovery.
Signs of spinal injury
The symptoms and signs of serious spinal injuries can vary widely as there are many different ways in which you can be injured, but it’s really important to get the right medical treatment if you have a back injury, as incorrect treatment or well-meaning assistance from other people can actually make the problem worse.
Some of the spinal injury symptoms might include, but are not limited to:
- Severe pain or pressure in the back, head or neck
- Weakness, paralysis or lack or coordination in any part of the body
- Numbness or tingling in fingers, toes, hands or feet
- Difficulty breathing
- Loss of bowel or bladder control
- Balance issues or inability to walk as you would normally
- Loss of movement
Back and spinal injuries can be the result of a variety of situations, including:
- Slips, trips and falls
- Falling from a height
- Accidents in the workplace
- Road traffic accidents
- Accidents in public places
- Accidents in another country
- Accidents and injuries acquired during sport
- Clinical negligence
Back and spinal cord injuries are always serious and can sometimes be completely life changing. Some spinal injuries can result in paralysis at varying levels, which often impacts the lives not only of the victims, but also their loved ones. The reason behind people wanting to claim compensation for such injuries is to allow the victims to live a happy life, without worrying about the financial restraints their new disability may bring.
How we can help
Claiming compensation for serious injuries, such as back and spinal injuries, can be far more complex than more common personal injury claims – but here at Stephensons our legal experts know when to handle such cases differently. We can offer the help of highly skilled specialist serious injury solicitors with years of experience in the field.
If you are interested in claiming compensation for a back or spinal cord injury, the process can be quite complex as it is vital that we evaluate the magnitude of your injuries in order to determine the necessary amount of compensation. For example, not all paralysis is permanent, therefore we must leave enough time to see if your movement improves. We can help with every aspect of your spinal injury claim.
What can compensation pay for?
If you aren't to blame for your back or spinal injury, we will be able to help you claim compensation to cope with the life changing impact the injury has had on your life. The amount of compensation you receive will be dependent on a number of things, such as the severity of your back or spinal injury and whether you need special care and home adaptations. Furthermore, if your ability to work is also affected, this will be taken into consideration when your compensation is being decided.
