Spinal Injury Claims
Contact Our Team
Spinal cord injuries are extraordinarily complex, which is part of the reason they are so difficult to come to terms with. There are many different types of spinal cord injury – each with different short-term and long-term outlooks.
If spine medical negligence or an accident that was caused by someone else are involved, our specialist lawyers may be able to help you with a spinal injury compensation claim.
The spinal cord is like a highway of nerves.
Its job is to relay messages from the brain to the body and back again. Damage to this information highway means the messages sent from the brain are not received by the body (and vice versa), resulting in the loss of feeling, function and movement in certain parts of the anatomy.
Spinal cord injuries are classified in two ways:
- How badly the spinal cord has been damaged (complete or incomplete);
- the specific location of the injury on the spinal cord.
What is the prognosis?
Spinal cord injuries are highly individual. Each one is unique and outcomes can vary from full recovery to permanent total paralysis. Again, that is part of what makes spinal cord injuries so emotionally challenging and difficult to come to terms with, and why an expert spinal injury lawyer is essential.
Any return of movement generally happens within the first year of injury, though improvements can continue for several years. The return of feeling and sensitivity is less common. Spinal injury claims are often able to fund additional rehabilitation and specialised equipment, which can be useful when trying to regain mobility.
