Spinal Cord Injuries
If you or someone close to you know has suffered a spinal cord injury then you may be entitled to claim compensation, and it is important that you speak to a Birmingham personal injury specialist as soon as possible. The compensation amount that you may be entitled to will depend on a number of different factors, including but not limited to the severity of the injury. Generally speaking, the average amount is significantly greater than the averages for other types of personal injury claim due to the fact that injuries related to the spine are often a lot more severe than other types of injury and have longer lasting consequences.
Spinal Cord Injury Compensation
As well as the severity, other factors that will be considered when determining how much compensation is to be paid is what other costs have been incurred as a result of the injury. Examples include initial medical costs, as well as any future costs of on-going treatment, rehabilitation, care or other necessary equipment. Additionally, there may be costs related to living modifications or mobility and transportation. Further, costs may also include any losses incurred as a result of time off work to recover or future loss of earnings if the injury means that the injured party can no longer return to work or perform the same role. You should ensure that you keep a record of any costs or other financial losses or implications and give a copy of any records to a Birmingham expert.
Another reason to ensure that you speak to a specialist Birmingham solicitor** who has experience of dealing with spinal cord injury cases is that they are more detailed than other types of personal injury claims, and often include complex legal and medical processes, something that will be dealt with most efficiently by a solicitor** who has dealt with similar cases and who has access to medical experts if and when they are required.
