Types Of Serious Injury

Serious injuries are life-changing. The most commonly seen serious injury includes: 

  • Spinal cord injuries - spinal cord injuries are caused by trauma to the neck and back. Depending on the severity of the injury and which part of the back has been affectedvictims may suffer from reduced movement, paralysis, respiratory problems, and bowel and bladder incontinence. Common causes of spinal cord injuries include road traffic accidents, falls from height, motorcycle accidents and accidents at work. Most spinal cord injury victims require the use of a wheelchair and assistance from caregivers. 
  • Brain injuries - Brain injuries can cause significant damage to the brain. Any amount of brain damage can be devastating, causing memory loss, cognitive deficits, speech loss, personality changes, and disability. Causes of serious brain injuries include road traffic accidents, motorcycle accidents, falls and assault. 
  • Amputations - Having to adapt to life without a limb can be extremely traumatic, but with help and support, most amputees can go on to live a full and rewarding life. Amputations may happen at the scene of the accident (known as traumatic amputations) or after the accident in a hospital. 

Causes Of Serious Injuries

The most common causes of serious injuries are road traffic accidents and accidents at work.

  • Road traffic accidents - accidents on the road occur frequently and can cause serious injuries. If you have sustained a serious injury in a road accident that was caused by another road user's negligenceyou will be able to claim compensation. 
  • Accidents at work - employers have a duty of care to protect their staff from harm and must carry out risk assessments, offer training and hand out PPE (personal protective equipment) to keep staff safe. Sadly, despite legislation aiming to increase safety in the workplaceaccidents at work still happen, and the consequences can be serious. If you have suffered a serious injury because of your employer's negligenceyou may be entitled to compensation.
  • Assault - injuries to the head can cause serious injury, and the head trauma sustained during assaults can be devastating. If you have been injured by another personyou will be able to claim compensation for your injuries.

Can I Make A Claim?

If you are the victim of a serious injuryyou will be able to make a claim if the accident that caused your injury was down to another person's behaviour or negligence. All victims have the right to claim for compensation and our solicitors are available to help you make your claim. 

How Much Compensation?

Often very high Compensation payouts are designed to cover the cost of care for the rest of the victim’s life. As well as being compensated for their physical and mental suffering, victims are often given money to help with costs like medical expenses, lost earnings (both actual and predicted) and accommodation adjustments. Working out how much money you could be entitled to can be tricky, but our solicitors will be able to give you a reasonable idea of what your pay-out is likely to be.
