An Introduction to Spinal Injuries Department at Digby Brown
Reading this page of the Digby Brown website will mean you either have an interest in spinal cord injuries or more likely you have been in a traumatic event or be a close friend or relative of someone who has. Having a spinal cord injury is devastating, we understand that. Having a spinal cord injury is life changing, we accept that. In one moment in time everything has changed, the World is turned upside down and will it ever turn right again? There will be many questions which may not at this stage have any answers. We are here to try and help where we can. To try and sort out what we know we can help with and to put you in the best hands to adjust to the rest.
The cause of the spinal injury can vary greatly however statistics show road traffic, sporting or industrial accidents are in the main responsible for the majority of accidents. Where the injury is the fault of another and in many cases this can be unclear or disputed you really need the help of the experts in this field – Digby Brown.
The firm has over 40 years experience dealing with every aspect of someone who has sustained a spinal cord injury. Seeking compensation after the accident is just one aspect of the package of measures which needs to be considered and implemented to try and ensure that the process of rehabilitation and adjustment can start. Digby Brown aim not only to assist our clients to receive full and prompt compensation, but also to help them to achieve the best outcome physically, psychologically and emotionally. We try to start this process from the moment we are instructed rather than waiting for compensation to be awarded. We subscribe fully to the Rehabilitation Code of Practice and to the (APIL) Association of Personal Injury Lawyer’s Best Practice Guide to Rehabilitation. We recognise that the medical condition and quality of life may be improved by early intervention, by the carrying out of an immediate needs assessment and by early interim payments.
