Compensation will help to smooth the path for your future. A specialist solicitor is the best route to ensuring maximum compensation is awarded.
Most importantly, you and your solicitor will need to establish if someone else is at fault, or partially at fault, for the injury. Even if the injured person was partially responsible for the accident, they may be entitled to a reduced percentage of a full compensation award. Any compensation at all can make a huge difference to the future and is therefore worth pursuing.
We will help, right at the outset, by liaising with your medical team to smooth the transition from hospital to home.
We will also ask the person at fault to pay for you to have an immediate needs assessment report under the Rehabilitation Code to identify your therapy and care needs and secure interim payments to purchase accommodation, equipment and setting up a care team. We instruct independent advisors to give advice on special items such as equipment, vehicles and holidays.
Our view is that it is essential that everyone who has suffered a spinal cord injury should seek legal advice from a specialist firm, such as Novum Law, to find out whether a claim can be made. We offer free advice at no obligation. We are members of the Spinal Injuries Association.
