Paralysis compensation claims

At Stephensons, we know how life-changing paralysis can be for both you and your family, and we understand how hard it can be to come to terms with, whether it be as the result of an accident or due to the negligence of a medical professional.

This can include compensation for your future care, rehabilitation and in some instances your accommodation and travel requirements.

Am I entitled to make a clinical negligence claim if I have paralysis after medical treatment?

The term ‘paralysis’ can cover a wide spectrum. It can mean losing the use of one or both sides of your body, your spine, or losing the use of one (monoplegia), two , three or all four (tetraplegia or quadriplegia) of your limbs. You may also suffer facial paralysis. Paralysis can be permanent or temporary and, in both cases, you may find that your mobility may be affected, or you lose feeling altogether. 

If you have suffered from paralysis following surgery, or medical treatment, it could be due to the negligence of a medical professional. It may also be that you had not been made aware of the risk of paralysis prior to agreeing to undergo surgery and had you been informed, you would have elected for alternative treatment. It may also be caused due to a delay in diagnosing and treating other medical conditions such as a brain tumour or Lyme’s disease. If this is the case, you may be entitled to compensation. Our team of specialist solicitors will assess your claim thoroughly and discuss the severity of your condition and the circumstances of the negligence with you in full. Once we have built a clear picture of how paralysis may affect your current day-to-day life and your future, we will be able to advise on how much compensation you may receive.
