There are around 800 – 1200 severe spinal injuries every year in the UK. Approximately 40,000 people are living with the effects of a severe spinal injury in Britain, with the majority of these being full-time wheelchair users. Spinal cord injuries result in damage to the nerves and electric signals in the spine that control movement, and as a result most spinal injuries result in some degree of paralysis. Rehabilitation from such injuries can be a long process. At Ashley Ainsworth we understand that they are traumatic experiences with life long implications, and therefore, we handle every case with sensitivity. We can help you receive the fullspinal injury compensation you are entitled to through a spinal injury solicitor.

We understand that a spinal injury claim is different than other personal injury claims. As a result the amount of compensation that is awarded in such cases is usually quite high. There are many different reasons for this. Firstly, there is the severity of the injuries involved and the dramatic effects they have on the victim and their family. It also takes into account the usually high costs involved in such an injury. This can include costs of rehabilitation, nursing, care, equipment and aids – for example specialist wheelchairs.Spinal injury compensation also takes into account the cost of modifications needed to the accommodation of the injured party, and the fact that they may be unable to return to work. A spinal injury solicitor will advise you on all these aspects.
There are many common ways that spinal injuries happen. Some of these are listed below:
- Road Traffic Accidents
- Falling from height
- Accidents at work
- Sport injuries
Road Traffic Accidents – Many spinal accidents are caused by road accidents. High impact, high speed crashes are most at risk of causing spinal injuries.
Falls from height – Landing on your back after a fall can cause serious spinal damage.
Accidents at work – Accidents at work can cause serious spinal injuries. For example, falling from poorly erected scaffolding and landing on your back. In such cases a claim for spinal injury compensation is possible.
Sport injuries – Spinal injuries in sports – especially rugby – are common. Sports clubs should have insurance to cover injuries, and a spinal injury solicitor can discover this for you.
