Damage to the spinal cord will often cause paralysis and loss of feeling, resulting in a devastating, life-changing event.
Claims for spinal-cord injuries are both medically and legally complex. At Anthony Collins Solicitors, we have represented many clients over the years who have suffered spinal injury and often our clients have received multi-million-pound settlements. If you have a spinal injury claim, then we will fight your case.
Our in-depth medical knowledge of these spinal-cord injuries, and our relationships with eminent medical and other experts ensure we can fully understand what injuries you or your family have suffered and the full impact upon your lives.
Spinal injuries can occur in a variety of different scenarios; from neurosurgery to anaesthetic accidents. Sometimes mistakes can happen while injections are being administered to the spine or by missing fractures of the neck and the spine. Sometimes nursing and paramedic staff don’t handle patients with neck and back injuries properly, which all can give rise to a claim. If you do have a spinal injury claim, then we are here to support you and help you get the compensation you need to make the necessary adjustments to you new living requirements and situation.
