As the basis of our body, our spine is one of the most important bones that we have and any injuries in this area can have a serious impact on our lifestyle. Road traffic accidents are a common occurrence right around the UK and in many situations we may find ourselves involved in a large impact which can result in the shattering or fracturing of many bones, including the spine.

Due to the importance of the spine, any injuries in this area can often be difficult to treat and require long periods of rehabilitation. As a result you could be eligible to make a compensation claim to cover any potential injuries that you have sustained as a result.

You can sustain a spinal injury in a number of ways, bust most commonly it will be as the result of the trauma of a large impact. Spinal injuries can also be sustained if you are crushed or trapped in a vehicle. Some common examples where you could claim include:

Who could I claim against?

As with any type of compensation claim, you are eligible to claim against anyone who you feel has been negligent towards you. If you have been involved in a road traffic accident which has been caused by another person then you could be eligible to make a claim against them for any damage that they have caused and any bills or expenses that you have incurred as a result.
