When you’ve suffered a spinal injury as a result of medical negligence, your life may well be changed forever. However, we can help you to get the compensation you deserve to help you live it to the full.

It could be that there was a delay in diagnosis, an error in surgery, or even that you underwent the wrong surgery entirely – however you received your negligent care, our team of specialist spinal solicitors, based in the centre of London, will help you to make a claim.

If you have experienced any of the following, we can help:

How do I know my treatment was negligent?

Negligent treatment, either on the NHS or at a private hospital, has occurred when there has been a ‘Breach of duty’ and you can prove ‘causation’ for your injury. Find out more about what needs to be proven here.

What if my injury is as a result of an accident?

If your spinal injury was caused by an accident, whether at work or elsewhere, we also have a specialist Personal Injury team to help you make a claim.

How much compensation will I receive?

Damages are awarded based upon financial loss and the pain and suffering you have experienced. For example, you may find you can no longer work following a spinal injury which means you will miss out on future earnings.

Find out more about how compensation is calculated here.

How do I know I’m eligible to claim?

If you have experienced negligent care, then you will have three years from the date of injury to make a claim, or from the date of knowledge of the injury.

Find out more about limitations here.

How can I fund a claim?

As specialist medical negligence solicitors, we are able to offer Conditional Fee Agreements (CFAs) to our clients if their case is eligible, otherwise known as ‘no win no fee’. This means that you will have nothing to pay if you lose.
