What could qualify me for spine injury compensation?

There are four different section of the spinal cord. These are:

  • The cervical section
  • The thoracic section
  • The lumbar section
  • The sacral section

The severity of your spinal injury often depends on the location of the damage.

Claiming for cervical spine injury compensation

Because it is the closest section the brain, damage to this area is the most serious form of spinal injury. It will often lead to limited or lost feeling and movement below the shoulders and neck. Injuries that are this serious will often involve the individual needing permanent 24-hour care for the remainder of their lives. This will need substantial funding, and therefore a claim for cervical spine injury compensation will be crucial to having all of the possible support that you need.

Claiming for thoracic spine injury compensation

The thoracic spine is located in the upper and middle part of the back, and it helps to keep the body upright. Injuries to this section often affect the abdominal and lower back muscles and movement in the legs. Recovery is different in each patient, but the best possible rehabilitation is vital to recover to your full potential. Compensation will support the best medical care for you and your specific situation.

Claiming for lumbar spine injury compensation

The lumbar section of the spine is the lowest major section of the spine and carries the most weight of any of the sections of the spine. This means that it features larger sections than the thoracic and cervical.

Claiming for lumbar spine injury compensation is important to support you through a recovery period that may involve having lost some function in the hips and legs, in addition to potential bladder problems. Optimum medical care can help you to recover as much as possible, and compensation will allow you to receive this.

Claiming for sacral spinal cord injury compensation

Also known as the coccyx, the sacral spine is located below the lumbar spine and above the tailbone. Injuries in this area generally result in some loss of function in the hips and legs and some loss of function to the bladder. Compensation for an injury of this kind can support you in your recovery and ensure that you get the best possible medical care.

Reaching a spinal stenosis injury settlement

Spinal stenosis is when the small spinal canal that contains the nerve roots and spinal cord, becomes compressed. This leads to pain, cramping, weakness or numbness. Depending on the section of the spine that this occurs in, you may feel these symptoms in the lower back and legs, neck, shoulder or arms.

The risk of developing spinal stenosis increases if you’ve had a previous injury or surgery of the spine. If you have been the victim of medical negligence, or you have suffered an injury that led to you developing spinal stenosis then we may be able to help you with a spinal stenosis injury settlement.

You were the third solicitor firm who handled my claim. Things were going at a pedantic rate but your file handles Craig Johnson kept me informed and advised me whenever! The claim took over 3 years from start to finish but Craig worked on it in good time.
