Spinal Injury Claims
The solicitors in our spinal injury claims team represent clients in complex cases arising from accidents or medical negligence, whether for an initial injury or a secondary complication such as pressure sore management.
What is a spinal injury?
A spinal cord injury can be caused by a trauma, such as an accident or medical mistake, or as a result of infection or disease. The damage to the spinal cord disrupts communication between the brain and the body. When this happens it can result in a total or partial loss of movement and sensation below the point where the spinal cord has been damaged. As well as the loss of movement and sensation a spinal cord injury can cause a loss of bladder and bowel control, changes in sexual function, extreme pain, and problems with regulating your breathing or blood pressure.
