Spinal Injury Solicitors
If you, or a loved one has recently suffered a spinal injury, you will undoubtedly be deeply concerned about the long-term impacts of the damage caused.
Depending on the extent of injury, damage to the spinal cord can have serious health consequences for those affected, including paralysis, loss of sensation, muscle weakness, lack of coordination, loss of bladder or bowel control, and uncontrollable spasms.
One of the challenges for physicians specialising in spinal cord injuries is the unpredictability of outcomes for patients. Some patients may make a complete recovery, while others may not, and this depends on the precise damage caused to individual spinal nerves, and their ability to heal. It is therefore important to allow time for the long-term effects to be known; the outcome once the initial damage and complications of the injury have had time to heal may be one of significant improvement or complete recovery.
New technology such as spinal cord regeneration is making in-roads into possible cures for spinal damage, however, this research is still underway and is yet to become a widely available and effective intervention.
At Lavelle Partners, we have worked with many clients who have suffered serious spinal injuries, successfully bringing claims on their behalf where it was due to negligence by another party. Our team, headed by Avril Scally, understand the real implications of spinal injuries for the person affected and their family. Patients may need to spend considerable time in hospital post-injury and may then undergo months or even years of therapy and treatment during the recovery process. It may also be necessary to make changes to the family home to accommodate the individual, including to allow wheelchair access, and suitable shower facilities. And through all of this period, there may be worries regarding loss of earnings and the costs associated with treating and adapting to the injury.
By calling one of our spinal injury solicitors, based on the details you provide us of the circumstances of the injury, we can advise you of your options for bringing a claim against the negligent party, with a view to bringing them to account and seeking financial damages for your losses.
