If you need any further information on the process of making a personal injury or medical negligence claim, take a look at our guide on the process here.
How much compensation might I receive for a spinal injury claim?
The level of compensation you receive will depend on the severity of your spinal injury and how it impacts upon you. Compensation involving paralysis often amounts to millions of pounds, and will take into account:
- loss of earnings, both past and future
- expenses incurred because of your injury
- pain, suffering and the effects on your everyday life
- the past and future cost of care; medical treatment and therapies; extra transport costs; specialist equipment; and alterations to your home.
How long will a claim take?
We will work hard to complete your claim as quickly as possible without compromising the outcome. We have refined our processes to cut out all unnecessary delays, and to ensure maximum efficiency. The time it takes to settle a claim varies greatly, but it can take up to a few years for spinal claims. It generally depends on:
- whether liability is disputed and
- the nature of your spinal injury and how soon the doctors are able to assess the long term impact.
We always seek interim payments for our clients whilst the claim is ongoing. This is especially crucial when there is a significant loss of earnings, but interim payments are also often used to help fund rehabilitation, to pay for specialist mobility equipment or to make your home more accessible.
Once we know more about your individual circumstances, we will provide you with an estimate of the time it will likely take to complete your claim.
How can a case be paid for?
There are a number of options:
The most popular funding option is a Conditional Fee Agreement, otherwise known as a “No Win No Fee” claim. This gives you peace of mind that should your case be unsuccessful, you will not have to pay our fees, so long as you keep to the terms of our agreement.
What if I already have a solicitor?
If you are unhappy with your current legal team , we may be able to help. We we regularly take over the conduct of claims from other firms of solicitors and would be happy to discuss this over the phone or via email.
Also, if your claim was settled within the last six years and you feel you have been let down by your previous legal team, we would be happy to speak to you.

We can also help you make a claim if your spinal injury was received as a result of medical negligence.
