We understand that suffering a spinal injury can change your life and the lives of your family significantly. There can be a range of injuries from fairly minor to very severe resulting in paralysis.

In order to make a spinal injury compensation claim and recover the maximum losses that you are entitled to, you need to speak to an expert solicitor.

Gorvins’ highly experienced military personal injury department will work closely with you and/or your family/loved ones to make things that little bit easier at what we understand is a very stressful and upsetting time. It is also possible for us to arrange interim payments to help with your financial situation e.g. if you have to have time off work or even to pay for important rehabilitation and support.

What support can we offer for spinal injuries?

We understand how difficult life can get after a severe accident and how spinal injuries can leave long-term and sometimes lifelong consequences. Also, we have good relations with, and can introduce you to the Spinal Injuries Association and other charitable organisations and support groups, many of the personnel within which have themselves suffered serious spinal/ spinal cord injuries.

Compensation for a spinal injury can help you and your family/ loved ones greatly when it comes to getting on with your life. It can help pay for a host of benefits such as transport, appropriate accommodation/ home adaptations, loss of earnings, rehabilitation, support  and healthcare.

Gorvins’ Experience in Spinal Injuries

Our experience in this specialist field includes:

  • Claims in relation to various parachuting accidents resulting in serious spinal and other life-threatening injuries
  • A substantial 7- figure settlement for a motorcyclist who suffered a spinal cord injury resulting in paraplegic

How to claim for spinal injury compensation

If you have suffered a spinal/spinal cord injury as a result of a colleague’s,  the MoD’s or  another party’s negligent actions, or as a result of a crime of violence, we can help you make a claim. Any spinal injury can be extremely serious, which is why you deserve a solicitor who will fight your corner and seek the highest possible level of compensation.
