Spinal Injury Claims

The consequences of spinal injuries are often devastating for both the individual concerned and for their families.

Patients may be left wheelchair-bound and heavily dependent upon others for all aspects of daily life.

Lees Solicitors have acted on behalf of a number of clients who have made compensation claims after their lives were fundamentally altered by medical or surgical errors.

seeking compensation for spinal injury

There are two primary areas in which medical negligence may lead to a spinal injury, and both can have an equally distressing impact upon the patient’s condition.

  1. Surgical errors
  2. Failure to diagnose spinal abnormalities

Spinal injury claims can be extremely complex. The main task is to ascertain whether there has been substandard care, be it by your GP, the Accident & Emergency department or in the operating theatre. It must then be shown that this poor care caused or contributed to the injury.

Beyond that, patients will also require a solicitor who is focused on the support that they will need for the future, both financially and emotionally.

It is essential that injured patients employ clinical negligence lawyers who have the necessary experience to know the right questions to ask. They should also have all the necessary resources to achieve a positive result in your claim, such as access to medical experts who can support your case.

The compensation amounts awarded in spinal injury cases can be very high. Although we know that money cannot turn back the clock, it can allow the injured patient and their family to move on and explore options for the future that will ensure their quality of life remains as high as possible.

Do you think it is a good case?

It is hard to assess the merits of a case fully before we have seen the relevant medical records and, if necessary, seen the reports from independent experts.  Our usual procedure is to consider the facts given to us by the client and then decide whether we are able to take the enquiry any further.  We would then review it again once the medical records and any other documents or reports are to hand, and indeed, will keep the merits of the case under review throughout the case.

How long will it take?

Investigation of a case usually takes between 18m-2yrs, although more complex cases can take longer. Much depends on how quickly the hospitals etc provide the medical records and then on what the waiting list of the experts are like, and whether you need to be seen by more than 1 expert.
