Have you suffered a Back or Spinal Injury that wasn’t your fault?

Specialist Back and Spinal Injury Solicitors

If you or a loved one has unfortunately suffered from a back or spinal injury, then you will know how quickly life can change as a result. It can be a deeply distressing experience and one that often results in life-changing consequences for those directly and indirectly affected. The outcomes associated with these types of injuries can also vary on a case to case basis and will depend on what area of the back or spinal cord has been damaged.

BTMK’s specialist back and spinal injury solicitors are experienced in dealing with a range of cases from minor back injuries to Cervical, Lumbar, Thoracic and Sacral spinal injuries. And, we are nationally recognised for helping clients who have suffered traumatic injuries due to an accident that wasn’t their fault. Compensation can provide support in many areas of your life, helping to make your recovery as positive as possible, or if a full recovery isn’t possible, helping you to achieve financial stability.

Our team will help you make a claim for the injuries you have suffered, so you receive the compensation you deserve, allowing you to move on with your life together with ensuring your future needs are met. We are accredited by The Association of Personal Injury Lawyers, one of the UK’s most prominent not-for-profit personal injury organisations.

What Is a Spinal Cord Injury?

The spinal cord impacts all bodily functions and acts as a pathway for communication between the brain and body. It makes up the body’s central nervous system and is an essential part of the peripheral nervous system too. People that suffer from a spinal injury find that their everyday involuntary and sensory functions are affected. As well as the physical effects, sufferers also experience negative emotional effects as a result of such an injury. 

Can I Claim If My Back Injury Was Partly My Fault?

Even if you know that your back injury was partly your fault, you should still get in contact with our specialist team of personal injury solicitors. You might still be able to claim compensation if your injury was also negligently caused by another party. 

How Long Do I Have to Bring a Back Injury Claim Forward?

If you have suffered a back or spinal injury, then it’s very important that you bring your claim forward within 3 years. This is the standard time limit in which you can file a personal injury compensation claim in the UK. If you haven’t started legal proceedings for your back or spinal injury within 3 years, then you will have lost your right to bring a claim forward. 

Why Do I Need a Specialist Back and Spinal Injury Solicitor?

Back and spinal injury claims have to be handled extremely carefully as there will be multiple complex factors that will need to be taken into account and investigated. Because of the complexity of such a case, it’s essential to get a personal injury solicitor who specialises in back and spinal injury compensation claims who will work closely with you. 

How Much Compensation Should I Expect? 

When it comes to back and spinal injuries, no case is the same, so it’s difficult to determine how much a victim is owed from the outset. However, the compensation that is awarded for these types of injuries is normally much higher than average personal injury claims. Additionally, when a solicitor is putting together your claim, they will factor in other expenses such as the rehabilitation costs, hospitalisation costs, home modification costs and loss of earnings if you are unable to go back to work.

Why Should I Choose BTMK to Deal With My Case?

Our team of specialist personal injury solicitors have extensive experience with dealing with all different types of back and spinal injury claims and have a compassionate understanding of the devastating effects that these injuries can have on you and your family. Making a claim for such an injury can feel like a stressful process which is why our team work sensitively to support all of our clients. 

How Long Will My Back/Spinal Injury Claim Take?

Every personal injury claim is different, and back/spinal injuries are no exception. We recognise that it is difficult to move on with your life until your compensation case has been completed, so we work hard to settle our client’s claims as quickly as their evidence allows. In some cases, it can take several years to resolve a claim, but our solicitors will provide you with a clear estimate as to how long your personal injury claim is likely to take. 

Will My Claim Go to Court?

This all depends on the circumstances and how severe your accident was. Some cases go to court when parties can’t agree on the amount of compensation or who was to blame. But, the threat of court proceedings is often enough to persuade the party who is at fault to make a settlement offer. But, if an agreement cannot be reached, then your case will need to go to court to be resolved.
