Spinal Injury Claims Solicitors
Road traffic accidents are the most common cause of spinal cord injuries in the UK and the impact on the injured person can be devastating. At Bikelawyer we know that at this difficult time the right support from a compassionate solicitor with specialist knowledge can make a real difference.
We understand that our clients worry about how they will support themselves and their families as well as how to meet the cost of expensive healthcare which may not be covered by the NHS. Where appropriate we seek substantial interim payments to take away the financial stress caused by such a serious injury.
Where liability is in dispute we act to resolve this quickly so that we can move forward and concentrate on maximising both the damages and the help that our clients receive.
Bikelawyer are specialist spinal injury claim solicitors and currently acts for many spinal injury clients with compensation values in the millions. We have a proven track record in getting client’s the best possible outcome.
What early help is available?
Once instructed we move quickly to put in place the support our clients need. We arrange case management and private rehabilitation. We can also arrange more tangible assistance where required. This can be private nursing care, or obtaining funding for the equipment and technology which can maximise our clients’ independence as their rehabilitation progresses.
We can also arrange adapted accommodation and transport to enable our clients to live safely and independently and support in returning to work.
What is case management?
A case manager is someone who helps an injured person by coordinating all of their interactions with the services they will require as a result of their injury.
Generally this will include liaising with both NHS and private healthcare providers, arranging any care or assistance required, and generally managing the injured person’s rehabilitation. They can also deal with social services in relation to benefits, employers, and anyone else who needs to be dealt with.
Will I have to pay for rehabilitation?
We vigorously pursue interim payments in order to ease the financial burden from which our clients are suffering. We can obtain funding for rehabilitation from defendant insurance companies under the Rehabilitation Code.
How much can I claim after a spinal injury?
The value of the claim depends on the impact of the injury. That spinal cord injuries tend to lead to some of the largest claims of all is a reflection of the devastating impact they can have.
We work with experts in accommodation, transportation, care, and employment to make sure we maximise the value of your claim.
At Bikelawyer we know that while we can’t turn the clock back, getting enough money to secure an injured person’s financial future makes all the difference in the world to their quality of life.
Why should I instruct Bikelawyer?
When choosing a solicitor it’s important to be aware that the damages you end up with is calculated by agreeing the value of the claim on a full liability basis and then applying any liability split to that amount.
This means that if your spinal injury was caused in a motorcycle accident, then it’s just as important that your solicitor is a specialist in motorcycle accident claims as that they are a specialist in spinal injury claims. At Bikelawyer we’re both.
Will a claim affect my benefits?
Where a claimant is in receipt of means tested benefits, future entitlement can be affected if the claimant has a large sum of money in the bank. You can protect your future benefits however, by using a personal injury trust.
Whenever our clients receive a large sum of money, be that through settlement or where we have obtained a large interim payment, we arrange for our clients to set up personal injury trusts which prevent that money from being counted towards means tested benefits.
This leaves our clients with the financial security to pursue their individual goals, whatever they may be.
How soon should you start a claim?
The earlier you get in touch the better because as soon as you instruct us we can begin to put in place the help you need, financial or otherwise.
