Injuries which result in a spinal cord injury are particularly hard to deal with as they inevitably affect a person in many ways. The likely emotional reactions of grief and shock at the difficulty in adjusting to a new way of living can feel devastating and it will probably be a challenge to accept.
Such an injury will most likely cause a serious impact on the person’s daily life and ability to work, for the immediate period after the injury and long-term as well. Losing the ability to walk or use your arms is a loss which is unlikely to be recovered from completely, but that doesn’t mean you have to suffer in silence due to the negligence of someone else.
Compensation claims will not heal physical injuries, but they can assist someone in rebuilding their life by covering the costs associated with the spinal cord injury. Scot Accident Claims can help you this.

A Firm With A Winning Reputation.
There is a strict three-year limit from the date of the accident to complete a successful claim. This means you should begin the claim as soon as you feel able to do so, as they often take several months, or longer, to complete.
You should make sure you have all the relevant documents to start your claim, such as the police incident number, insurance and registration details of the negligent driver, and all receipts for expenses associated with the accident.
Personal Injury solicitors can assist you with making and progressing your claim against the negligent party who caused your injury. They can also give advice, on applying for statutory benefits and about your welfare rights as a disabled person.
Look for solicitors who subscribe to a Code of Practice to ensure your overall welfare is prioritised at all times, meaning that your immediate needs are met and any support is offered holistically, whether financial, physical, emotional and mental.It is especially important to retain the services of a specialist personal injury solicitor for compensation claims involving a major change to your life such as a spinal cord injury.
Emotional reactions can restrict a person’s ability to follow procedures within the time limit allowed and physical injuries can unfortunately cause additional restrictions to seeking help.It is important to make a claim quickly yet thoroughly and a solicitor can help you with this process.
How long the claim takes depends on the complexity of the case, and whether your opponent admits responsibility. It is likely to take longer than a few months to resolve a claim involving a spinal injury – serious injuries may have to stabilise in order to establish their full extent.
