Spinal Cord Injury Claims

Your spinal cord is a structure which contains nerves, tissue and fluid, extending from your brain to your lower back. 

An injury to your spinal cord can be catastrophic and can cause permanent damage including paralysis, loss of bladder or bowel control, and can affect sexual function.

If a spinal cord injury has been negligently caused, or misdiagnosed or negligently treated, you may be able to make a compensation claim.

Can you make a compensation claim?

If you believe you have suffered as a result of negligence surrounding a spinal cord injury, you may be eligible to claim compensation.

Due to the complex medical and legal issues involved, it is essential that you talk to a specialist clinical negligence solicitor. A specialist will understand all the implications of a spinal cord injury. This means that they can maximise your compensation if you succeed in your claim. You can contact us by calling 01244 354688, or by filling in our contact form. We are happy to offer free, confidential, and professional advice on potential clinical negligence claims.
