Specialist Spinal Injury Solicitors

It is important that the personal injury solicitor representing your interests is experienced in spinal injury. Injuries to the spine have to dealt with in a very different way to back injuries as every spinal injury claim is unique.

The Rogers & Norton personal injury team are dedicated to pursuing compensation claims on behalf of claimants who sustain life changing injuries

The prognosis is more positive for a full recovery with a back injury back than there is to your spine. It is quite possible for an individual to suffer a broken back; ruptured discs; spinal stenosis or trapped nerves and yet providing the spinal cord remains intact and the vertebrae not damaged, a full recovery without paralysis, loss of mobility, function and feeling can be achieved.

Spinal injuries of whatever severity can dramatically change a person’s day to day life. It is therefore very important that the personal injury solicitor ensures that all areas of potential expense are investigated and claimed where appropriate. The extra care; support; equipment and accommodation that will be needed should be reflected in the compensation required.

The areas which should be considered in a spinal injury include:-

  • Pain, suffering and loss of amenity
  • Medical treatment costs
  • Future medical treatment costs
  • Care provided commercially
  • Care provided by loved ones
  • Future care provision
  • Rehabilitation costs
  • Loss of income
  • Future loss of income
  • Disadvantage on the labour market
  • Mobility requirements in terms of a motor vehicle and wheelchair where appropriate
  • Adaptations to the home
  • Acquisitions of suitable properties to live in and where appropriate to adapt

Every spinal injury claim is unique. Those who sustain a spinal injury often have very complex needs. A spinal injury can impact on every aspect of day to day life, so compensation needs to reflect the extra care, support, equipment and accommodation that spinal injury claimants need.
