We understand the shock that people feel when a medical error has left them paralysed or facing lengthy rehabilitation. You might be unsure of your position and it can be difficult to know what to do next when your life changes so dramatically. We realise you are facing difficult decisions and we start by giving you the information you need and letting you consider your options in your own time.

Everyone’s situation is different but a number of clients come to us because they experienced a delay in diagnosing a condition like cauda equina syndrome or other neurological conditions. We have also helped clients who were let down by mental health services and suffered spinal cord injury in attempted suicides. Over our decades of experience, we have built a strong reputation as spinal injuries solicitors who care deeply about getting the best outcomes for their clients.

This is why our clients have recommended us to the Spinal Injury Association (SIA) and they have agreed that we meet the standards required to join their panel. We could not have a better recommendation than that.

An experienced spinal cord injury solicitor reviews every case thoroughly and adapts to each client’s unique situation. For all our clients, we ensure you get personal help from our small but dedicated expert team – which includes skilled cauda equina solicitors. We know how important it is to get you the right treatment promptly but we also understand that you need time to come to terms with what has happened.

If your spinal cord injury was caused by medical negligence, we begin by gathering the information we need to get a clear picture of the events. It is important that we can describe the circumstances of your injury fully and show where decisions or delays contributed to the final outcome. We also encourage the Defendant (usually an NHS hospital trust) to meet you. This might sound daunting but we will be with you. This is an important part of the process as it reminds defendants that you more than a number. The sooner we can agree interim payments with defendants, the sooner you have control over your treatment choices and you can begin making plans for your future.

While we are talking to you about your claim for spinal injury caused by medical negligence, you can let us know what information you want us to share with you. It is important that you set the pace.

You can rely on us to provide honest advice and to flag up any risks in your claim. If we believe the Defendant’s offer of compensation is too low, we will let you know and we’ll speak up for you.
