What to consider when accessing local areas in a wheelchair

The first time after sustaining your spinal cord injury

Alex Dabek is a Senior Associate Solicitor in the Spinal Injury team. Alex offers a helpful checklist for those with a recent spinal cord injury to consider when accessing their local community for the first time in their wheelchair.

The Spinal Injury Lawyers at Bolt Burdon Kemp have substantial experience in obtaining compensation for people who sustain a spinal cord injury. Compensation can be used to fund rehabilitation to help optimise independence. It can also fund cutting edge equipment such as wheelchairs to maintain independence, and provide the newly injured person with a good quality of life.
