Spinal injury claims

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 mainly 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 Solicitors.

The firm has over 40 years' experience dealing with every aspect of someone who has sustained a spinal cord injury.

Spinal injury claims, rehabilitation and interim payments

Making a claim for 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 begin.

Digby Brown aim not only to help our clients receive full and proper compensation for their spinal cord injury, but also to help them achieve the best outcome physically, psychologically and emotionally. 

We try to start this process from the moment we take on the case, 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.

Welfare rights and specialist advice

Digby Brown provide in-house Welfare Rights advice and specialist advice. We understand that early intervention in a personal injury claim may involve the provision of advice and advocacy in relation to the benefits system.

Children similarly may need support to ensure they obtain their legal entitlement under the Education (Additional Support for Learning) (Scotland) Act 2004.

No win no fee funding for spinal injury claims

We appreciate that proper investigations for a spinal injury claim can be expensive which is why we operate similarly to no win, no fee basis. This means we are able to offer complete funding through our Compensate funding package. This gives our clients access to justice with no financial risk.
