A spinal injury can disrupt your life, and that of those around you, in an unimaginable way. We’re here to restore the balance.

Our spinal injuries team has helped people all over the UK secure compensation after suffering injuries caused by others, whatever the nature of the accident or how it occurs. We are recognised nationally as being specialists in spinal cord injury claims and, unlike some other personal injury solicitors, our team only deal with spinal cord injury claims. Our team handles small caseloads so you can be sure your lawyer really understands your individual circumstances and gets to know you personally.

With the help of trusted medical experts, we’ll take time to assess your condition and prognosis and get to the bottom of how your injury happened and who was responsible. That’s the basis of a claim. Once we have those facts, we’ll work hard to get the best result for you – one which helps make life more secure.  In some cases, we can ensure interim payments are made before compensation is awarded, so that you can pay for the care, equipment and adaptations you need throughout your life.

Take a look at this video featuring Ify, one of our clients, who talks about the impact of his spinal cord injury.

Ify also talks about the adaptations made to his house in this video.

We’re experienced in all types of spinal cord injury, from high-level cervical injuries requiring ventilation, to lower level thoracic injuries. In each case we will work with you and your loved ones alongside your case manager to help you adjust to new circumstances from the early post-accident stages through to when your compensation is paid. This might include financial guidance in the form of advice on state benefits and the setting up of a Personal Injury Trust, should you wish.

We travel all over the country to meet with our customers at home or in hospital and have offices in Oxfordshire, the Midlands and in London.

We’re proud to be accredited by the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL) and to work in partnership with the Spinal Injuries Association (SIA). We’re also delighted to sponsor the SIA’s Community Peer Support Worker programme which supports people who have sustained spinal injuries through accidents or illnesses.

We work on a no win, no fee basis meaning there is no financial risk to you.
