Spinal Injury

Suffering from a spinal injury will almost certainly be overwhelming for you, especially if the damage to your spine is permanent and even more so if you were not responsible for the accident which caused your injuries.

We cannot possibly understand what you are going through, both physically and emotionally, however, we have got many years of experience in making compensation claims for people who have been injured, just like you have and we can help you too.

Types of Spinal Injuries

Spinal injuries are complex. The spinal cord is basically a large bundle of nerves which run down from the brain stem all the way down to the base of the spine. It is protected by the spine and runs through the centre. However, an impact in a car accident can cause damage to both the spine itself and the spinal cord.

Any damage of the spinal cord will result in paraylisis from the injury site, downwards. As a result, if yous suffer an injuries high up in the neck, your may not be able to breathe unaided. Damage to the spinal cord can somtimes be temporary if it has been badly brusied, however if your spinal cord is badly damaged or completely severed, your injuries will be permanent.

The Impact Of Spinal Injury

A spinal injury will not just affect you, but your whole family. It may mean that you can no longer live in your home, if suitable adaptations cannot be made and you may need to move. You may not be able to return to your job or in fact ever work again and you may have to face the reality of the rest of your life in a wheelchair.

No amount of money will be able to change your injuries, however it will be able to help you to afford to do all of the things you will now have to do, like moving or adapting your current home, buying new transport and being able to access the best medical treatment and rehabilitation for your injuries.

More reasons to choose us  
I am a self-employed taxi driver and this is my only means of income. In the autumn of 2013 I was charged with an allegation of dangerous driving contrary to Section 2 of the Road Traffic Act of 1988. The case was listed for trial in December of 2013, the busiest period of the year. If convicted I would have definitely lost my livelihood as I would have been banned from driving and lost my taxi license. I could also have lost my liberty. Ashmans Solicitors managed to find flaws in the prosecution case and spent painstaking hours in researching case law to successfully argue that my actions did not constitute dangerous driving. Following a successful legal argument by Ashmans advocate I was found not guilty. I managed to protect my license and my livelihood.

They are a conscientious, thoroughly hard working and friendly firm to deal with.
