Spinal injuries can drastically alter your life. Even in less severe cases, it can result in serious complications such as loss of movement and a disconnect between the brain and the body, resulting in disabilities.
How spinal injuries can affect your claim?
Depending on the severity of your accident, the consequences of a spinal injury can differ. But, it can affect how you or a loved one live your life forever. If your injuries are because of someone else, you can make a compensation claim. This could be due to someone in the workplace failing to follow health and safety guidelines, or it could be due to the actions of another road user. To obtain successful compensation, you must demonstrate that another party is at fault and establish liability.
Back injuries sustained at work or in an accident can result in the following symptoms and conditions:
- Difficulty walking
- Problems with bladder control
- Loss of motion in your legs or arms
- Persistent numbness or stinging sensation in your hands and feet
- Back or neck pain
