The spine is a part of the body particularly sensitive to injury, and damage can have a significant impact on your quality of life, and in extreme cases severe injuries can result in permanent paraplegia. If you have been involved in an accident that wasn’t your fault, you could be entitled to compensation.

Case study - passenger hurt in a road accident
A claim arising out of a road traffic accident in which the claimant, a passenger, suffered serious spinal injuries. The claimant suffered incomplete tetraplegia and significant urological difficulties. The claimant was left with much reduced earning capacity, care and accommodation requirements. Expert reports from numerous different specialisms were obtained by both parties. Joint statements were prepared by the experts. The claim settled following a Joint Settlement meeting with an award in excess of £2 million gross on a Provisional Damages basis. The award was reduced by 25% to reflect the claimant's failure to wear a seatbelt.
