Spinal Cord Injury Lawyers (inc Paraplegia and Tetraplegia)

A spinal cord injury is one that results in either temporary or permanent alteration to the spinal cord’s usual motor, sensory or autonomic functions. Spinal injuries can result from a sudden trauma, for example because of a car accident or an assault, and can have a serious and long-lasting impact on your life, including long-term pain and permanent paralysis.

At Jones Whyte Law, our solicitors understand how difficult it can be to come to terms with a life-altering injury like this, and this becomes even harder if your injury was caused by someone else’s avoidable mistake. Where an accident caused by another has caused you to suffer a spinal cord injury, call the expert solicitors at Jones Whyte Law today and we can help you get you the compensation you are due.

Paraplegia and Quadriplegia Solicitors in Glasgow, Scotland

The personal injury specialists at Jones Whyte are able to help you no matter the severity of your injury. Broadly, there are two main types of spinal cord injury:

  • Quadriplegia, sometimes called tetraplegia, is an injury in the upper half of the patient’s spine, which causes some degree of paralysis in both the legs and the arms. Generally, the higher up the spine the injury is, the more severe it is.
  • Paraplegia is the word used to describe spinal cord injuries in the lower half of the spine. Paraplegics can generally use their arms, but suffer some form of paralysis from the waist down. Some only suffer minor mobility issues, such as tingling in the legs or decreased sensation in the lower body.

Whatever the nature of your injury, you can rest assured that the dedicated solicitors at Jones Whyte have the skills and experience to obtain the maximum level of compensation possible.

How Jones Whyte can help with your Claim

At Jones Whyte, our expert personal injury compensation team will claim for the full extent of your pain, suffering and losses. The amount you are likely to be awarded will depend on the severity of your injury and its impact on your life. Our team can help you claim for the following, among others:

  • your pain and suffering;
  • loss of earnings you incurred as a result of having to take time off work;
  • medical care costs you incur;
  • loss of amenity (that is, where you are unable to enjoy activities you used to prior to your injury); and
  • any childcare costs you might have incurred.

Where you are suffering from a serious spinal cord injury, one of the major concerns you will have is rehabilitative care once your immediate medical treatment is finished. The team at Jones Whyte can help you get the compensation and support you need to live a life as near to normal as possible, this includes:

  • making your home accessible and usable where you suffer reduced movement;
  • finding a new home, where it is not possible to make your existing one adequate;
  • paying for consultants, physiotherapists and other medical experts to help you with medical treatments;
  • paying for counselling services where your injury has had an impact on your mental health;
  • paying for mobility equipment and training; and
  • finding suitable employment.
