Sponsored Guest Post: Spinal Cord Injury Compensation Claims

A spinal cord injury can have devastating effects for the victim of a non-fault accident, as wells as for the victim’s family. The ability to walk and move as we please is something we can take for granted, so suddenly losing this freedom can be a terrible blow. An injury to the spinal cord can be one of the most catastrophic types of injuries. This is due to the likelihood that any damage to the nerve fibres will affect their ability to transmit signals from the brain to the rest of the body - resulting in a permanent disability.
The spinal cord is a long thin bundle of nervous tissues that extends from the brain down the first 18 inches of the spinal column. It is the main pathway for the transfer of information between the brain and the peripheral nervous system and any damage to the spinal cord can cause paralysis and other problems with movement or function. A spinal cord injury can be caused in a variety of situations. The force from even a relatively minor impact such as a car accident, an accident at work or a trip or fall can be enough to damage the spinal cord, leaving the unfortunate victim either partially or completely paralyzed.
If you or a loved one has been the victim of a spinal cord injury and someone else was to blame, you may be eligible to make an accident claim – provided the accident took place within the last three years.
An expert personal injury solicitor can help to guide you through the complex process of making a claim for spinal injury compensation, focusing on the issues that are important to you – sure as making sure that any claim that is made covers the cost of any specialist medical care that either you or your injured family member might require.
