A spinal injury can be a catastrophic life changing event. Not just for the injured but also for their family. At Curzon Green we recognise the profound impact that such injuries cause and we understand what you’re going through. More importantly, we know how to help you.
If your injury was caused as a result of someone else’s negligence then you have a case against them. Indeed we would advise that if you do suffer such an injury then you should seek legal advice to see if there is a claim.
The change in lifestyle caused by a spinal injury is a daunting prospect however those who suffer spinal injuries live extremely rewarding lives. We will work with you to help you get the funds you need in order to live that life.
Who’s at fault?
We will begin immediate investigations into the accident that caused your injury. We will apply pressure to the party at fault and if necessary commence legal proceedings against them. Legal proceedings can be a lengthy time consuming process which is why we will ensure that we are with you every step of the way.
Where the issue of who is to blame is relatively straight forward we will push for payments to give you the financial assistance and security you need as soon as possible.
How much will I receive?
This varies on a case to case basis and depends on many different factors. However the Law entitles you to claim compensation for the pain and suffering you experience as a result of an injury which was not your fault and for other expenses related to the injury.
Awards of compensation commonly include:
· Compensation for the spinal injury sustained
· Loss of earnings
· Funds to provide care, support, rehabilitation, physiotherapy, occupational therapy and personal care
· The cost of specialist equipment, including a suitable property, aids and equipment and transport
· A periodical payment order (PPO), which is an annual, index linked, payment for life to cover future, year on year, items of expenditure such as care and case management.
For a serious injury the compensatory award can reach millions of pounds.
