If you, or somebody you know, have suffered a spinal injury in an accident, you will understand how completely debilitating the injury is – both with the pain that is suffered and the lack of mobility. Spinal injuries can cause paralysis, loss of sensation and co-ordination, and when you have sustained a spinal injury do to somebody else´s lack of care – or even partial negligence – you are entitled to make a spinal injury compensation claim.
Because of the delicate nerves and tissues which are in and around the spine, even when you feel a minor pain along the backbone, it is essential that you get a medical examination. Slight spinal injuries can deteriorate into far more serious issues if left untreated and, furthermore, your visit to a hospital or your local GP will be recorded in your medical notes, which will then be used to support your spinal injury compensation claim.
Making a Spinal Injury Compensation Claim
It is always in your best interests to make a spinal injury compensation claim with the assistance of a specialist personal injury claims solicitor. Because of the potential high value of a spinal injury claim, it is essential that your application form to the Injuries Board Ireland is completed as comprehensively as possible and submitted with as many supporting documents as possible.
Also, because of the potential amount of spinal injury compensation you may be entitled to receive, it is possible that the negligent party will deny their responsibility for your injuries, or claim that you contributed to them by your own actions – instances in which the Injuries Board Ireland will decline to assess your spinal injury compensation claim.
Such actions will mean that your solicitor will have to litigate your spinal injury compensation claim in court, although it is also likely that you will be approached by the negligent party´s insurance company with an offer of early settlement of your spinal injury claim. Because there are so many different possible resolutions to spinal injury compensation claim, we have set up a telephone service to provide free spinal injury claim advice.
