Spinal cord injury compensation claims

We understand the effect that a spinal cord injury has on the person and on the wider family and friends of the injured person.

Spinal cord injury claims are complex and require thorough investigation. On average, every day in the UK, six people are paralysed by spinal cord injury. We understand the enormous impact this injury has on families, and we pull together to help you get back on track.

Compensation for a spinal cord injury enables you to access funding for ongoing treatment and rehabilitation, ensuring you or your loved one has the best chance of rebuilding your lives.

Through specialist legal advice, together with financial, physical and emotional support, we help and provide support and guidance from day one. Our aim is to help your whole family, with an absolute focus on getting the best outcomes in terms of your recovery, wellbeing and independence.

I feel so lucky to have chosen CFG to handle my case as when you have an accident you don’t know who to trust. From day one they made me feel secure, reassured and they also kept me fully informed throughout the whole process. I know that I received first class legal advice, and they used top experts to support my case. I can’t fault their service and am thankful for everything that they did for me.

How we can help rebuild your life after a spinal cord injury

We help people like you and your loved ones to lead fulfilled lives. Our focus from day one is to help rebuild your life, by providing support and guidance along the way.

Our team includes specialist serious injury solicitors alongside in-house healthcare professionals, who pull together to support your family. We are not here just to get you the compensation you deserve, but to provide support and rehabilitation so you can begin to rebuild you and your family’s lives after your accident.

What is the compensation claims process?

From initial contact, we will meet with you and your family where we encourage you to speak openly about your circumstances. This is a great opportunity for you to speak freely and for us to answer any of the questions you may have in regards to your claim. We will explain the benefits of pursuing a claim, the chance of success and how we can help rebuild your life. All initial advice is free without obligation and entirely confidential.

If you are happy to proceed with us, your case will be handled by one of our specialist spinal cord injury solicitors who will lead a dedicated team including another solicitor, trainee solicitor or paralegal, together with one of our in-house healthcare professionals.

We will help gain access to early funding to put in place a bespoke rehabilitation and support programme; which can include additional therapy treatments, aids and equipment and care to allow you to be discharged at the most appropriate time and to the most appropriate place.

On discharge from the hospital, we will liaise with you and your family and help with planning for the future. We will help access funding from the Defendant Insurers to help with a support and rehabilitation package, including areas over and above what can normally be provided through the NHS or local authorities.

How much compensation can I claim for a spinal cord injury?

Valuing a spinal cord injury claim can be difficult. We will identify the best experts (for example barristers, experts - medical and on liability - and financial advisors) to work with us to help secure the maximum compensation award and making sure all your future needs have been investigated and costed for.

The exact amount of compensation from a spinal injury claim settlement will be dependent on a number of factors the court takes into consideration; including, but not limited to:

  • Personal trauma
  • Medical expenses
  • Travel expenses
  • Costs for ongoing care
  • Aids and equipment
  • Loss of earnings (both current and future)
  • Adaptations to your home to accommodate your future needs

What can spinal cord injury compensation help pay for?

Compensation helps fund the ongoing support and treatment you need as a result of your injury. It pays for access to comprehensive care and treatment while helping you gain admission to specialist treatment units.

Compensation is vital to pay for costs and expenses accumulated after your injury, helping you to:

  • Gain access to the best treatment, support and rehabilitation
  • Fund counselling, medical treatment and ongoing therapy
  • Purchase and maintain mobility aids
  • Fund vocational support
  • Alleviate debts since the injury
  • Gain peer support from the Spinal Injuries Association (SIA)

We understand that after a serious spinal cord injury, you may experience feelings of loneliness and isolation. This is why we also work closely with the Spinal Injuries Association (SIA) and sponsor their Peer Support Worker, Andy Wharton.

Andy has first-hand experience of living with a spinal cord injury and can offer advice and support for newly injured people and their families.
