Every day in the UK three people will be left unable to walk again because of a spinal injury. For many of these individuals, the opportunity for some form of care, rehabilitation, and independence, is only available to them via a successful back injury compensation claim. Securing settlement can be all about securing quality of life.
The most common causes of traumatic back injury in the UK are road traffic accidents, falls, and accidents at work – all of which are considered compensable where another party can be shown to have been at fault.
Adapting to the realities of a serious back injury can take a great deal of time, for both the injured person and his or her loved ones. However, adjustment is not simply something that comes with time and an adaptive psychology – it is also about care, practical support, and investment.
The back injury compensation claim specialists at George Ide LLP can help those affected receive immediate treatment where possible and to secure interim payments for this care.
Sadly, too many spinal cord injury sufferers do not receive the level of treatment and support they require, whether they are discharged too early from hospital, put into unsuitable care, go into inadequate accommodation, or are poorly advised by their personal injury solicitors.
This is a reality supported by the latest study from a leading researcher in Loughborough University, with figures from this institution indicating that 60 percent of spinal injury sufferers in care have considered suicide.
George Ide LLP, a full-service legal firm in West Sussex, can help you claim full compensation for a back injury you have suffered as a result of another party’s negligence, whether one-off trauma or cumulative conditions in the workplace.
Our partners have experience of settling all levels of claim, from those that deserve four or five figure sums to the largest six and seven figure settlements.
