Obtaining Justice for Back / Spinal Accidents

When it comes to Personal Injury claims, many people would agree that apart from fatal injuries, cases rarely get any more serious than those that have led to back / Spinal Accidents. This will especially be the case when such accidents have seen a severing of the spinal cord – which is going to lead to the victim not being able to walk again for the rest of their lives.

When such accidents have transpired through no fault of the victim – indeed it was someone else’s fault – this person is definitely going to want to obtain justice and compensation for the pain, suffering and financial loss they would have gone through. This is where a personal injury solicitor needs to be sought within three-years of back / spinal accidents.

When you consult a personal injury solicitor over back / spinal accidents, first and foremost, they will walk you through all of the pertinent details of the case. This will be in an effort to gage how likely the case is to succeed in court. If the case stands a strong chance of success, the solicitor may be able to offer you a no win no fee contract: meaning you would not need to fork out a single penny if you lose the case.

Whether or not the victim is able to secure compensation for the pain suffered and financial losses that have been incurred as a result of the back / spinal accident will depend on proving that the defendant was negligent or remiss in some way and that this led to the accident. If their culpability can be proven, the claimant (victim) stands a good chance of securing the compensation award they will need to rely upon for the rest of their life.

With back / spinal accidents, when you are talking about compensation award rates for these types of injuries, you are usually looking at figures that run into tens-of-thousands of pounds. Indeed, for a claimant that has lost their ability to walk, the compensation rate is likely to be in the region of £100,000, with financial losses on top of this figure. This may sound like a great deal of money; however, we need to remember here that these sums are designed to not only compensate the victim for what they have been through, but also support them for the rest of their lives. When you put it this way, suddenly these figures look a little paltrier.
