Your spinal cord injury
A spinal cord injury will change your life forever. You may feel that nothing will be the same again with relationships, employment and your lifestyle all being hugely affected. You may now be wholly reliant upon others and your medical requirements are probably complex and demanding.
You cannot change events but if your injuries have occurred as result of medical negligence or trauma then it may be possible to explore a claim to ensure future financial security and support for you and those around you.
When to bring a claim
A claim for damages may arise from a traumatic event or as a result of the mismanagement of medical treatment provided to you.
Causes for medical mismanagement leading to a spinal injury can be far ranging but include failure to advise adequately on surgical complications, delay or failure to diagnose conditions and the negligent mishandling of surgical or other procedures.
