Spinal injury claims
Spinal injuries can cover a wide range of injuries with very different implications for you and your family. From relatively short lived periods of pain and discomfort to life changing injuries including paralysis.
Following serious spinal injury a bespoke rehabilitation program will be necessary. Admiral Law are signatories to the Serious Injuries Guide which means that in most cases we will be able to secure a rehabilitation package in the early stages of your claim to maximise your recovery. This includes obtaining interim payments from the negligent party to fund case management led rehabilitation, accommodation issues, aids and equipment and to compensate for any ongoing expenses or loss of earnings.
Our serious injury solicitors have a breadth of knowledge and experience in arranging multi-disciplinary consultations to ensure that you have the support that you need, the most appropriate experts and best possible representation.
We understand the far reaching consequences spinal injuries can have and if necessary, will look at the suitability of your current and future property so that your future is secure.
As your recovery progresses Admiral Law’s specialist solicitors will support any return to work, be that in the same job, or investigation of other options. Regaining independence is essential in order to maximise the potential for rehabilitation to be successful. We will always be led by you – it is your life and we will help you get it back.
Through a combination of experience, the best possible experts, barristers and rehabilitation providers we can investigate every possible impact caused by your accident and secure the best possible level of compensation. While no amount of money can give you back what has been lost, it can give you the chance to live an independent lifestyle.

How will my claim be funded?
You may have legal expenses insurance attached to your car or home insurance policy. We can make enquiries to see if any such legal expense insurance exists and can be used to fund your claim. If you do not have existing legal expenses insurance we can enter into a Conditional Fee Agreement (a no win no fee agreement) and a bespoke policy of after the event legal expenses insurance. Under the terms of a no win no fee agreement, you may be charged a success fee.
How long will my claim take?
We aim to conclude your claim as soon as is possible. The length of time this takes depends very much on the severity of the injury and the duration of your recovery and importantly the willingness of the defendant to accept fault.
It is important that we ensure that you are recovered completely or have a final prognosis for your future in order to calculate any resulting losses before attempting to settle your claim.
How much compensation will I receive?
The consequences of the injuries or illnesses will vary between individuals. The amount of compensation you could receive will be personal to you and depend upon a number of factors such as the severity of the injury, extent of any continuing symptoms and the level of impact on ability to work.
Our personal injury solicitors are experienced in accurately valuing claims to ensure you get the compensation you deserve.
