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

Our spinal injuries team has helped people all over the country secure compensation after suffering injuries caused by others. We can help 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 the most serious catastrophic injury claims. Our team handles smaller caseloads so you can be sure your lawyer really understands your individual circumstances and gets to know you personally. We also work as a team, and every member of the team will know about your case and be able to help you if the solicitor you normally speak to is unavailable.

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 so that you can pay for the care, equipment and adaptions you need as soon as possible.

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 to lower level thoracic injuries. In each case we will work with you and your loved ones to help you adjust to your new circumstances, from the early post-accident stages through to when your compensation is paid. We can assist you in navigating the state benefits system, and in helping you find the right financial advice as well as in setting up a Personal Injury Trust, should you wish.

We travel all over the country on a no obligation basis to meet with you at home or in hospital and have offices in Oxfordshire, the Midlands and in London. We don't charge for coming to visit you and, if we're able to take your case on, it will almost always be on a no win, no fee basis.

We’re proud to be accredited by the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL) and to have worked for many years in partnership with the Spinal Injuries Association (SIA) and to have also sponsored 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.
