Spinal Injuries

Whiplash is one of the most common spinal injuries and is caused due to rapid acceleration or sudden deceleration, most commonly caused in a vehicle accident, when the head is thrown backward, forward or sideways rather violently and suddenly. This kind of motion puts a short but a severe strain on the spine and neck, stretching the ligaments and muscles of the body. This kind of injury may render a person disable to perform regular tasks of an every day life. The degree and severity of the injury and pain determine the claim that the injured person may like to make against the person who was negligently driving.

A large number of people make their claims for their spinal injuries, caused due to the mistake, negligence or ignorance of other people. Actually most of the accidents are happened due to someone’s negligent and unsafe driving. More often, these spine injuries already have enough grounds for the injured person to file a legal charge against the person who caused the injury. Some people are reluctant to file a case because they fear that they will only waste their money and time on the legal procedure, but the fact is that the injured person has every right to claim for compensation from the person, whose mistake had caused so much injury and pain, leading to both physical as well as financial loss. In fact, there are many lawyers who work on the basis of contingency fees, which mean that they will not charge any legal fees from the clients if they cannot win the case for them. So why not try out your hand on the case, especially when there are no extra financial expenses involved. In addition to that, the injured person will involuntarily be stopping the faulty person from committing further mistakes that may result in injuries of more people due to his or her negligence and unsafe driving.
There are actually two kinds of damages that can be claimed for: general damages covering suffering and pain caused due to the injury or the accident, and specific damages like loss of earnings and medical costs of treatment. In order to claim for the spinal injuries caused in an accident, the injured party has to look for a professional and experienced solicitor, who is specialised in the particular field of claims, and is able to defend the client in any circumstances. The consequences of a whiplash injury are visible only after some time of the accident, so it is better to get medically examined in time, so that the injured party does not get late for making the claim.

Slip in Public House
Mrs C whilst walking towards the bar area slipped on the wet floor of a public house whilst walking towards the bar area. She fell awkwardly causing a complex fracture of her right wrist. The insurers denied liability alleging the floor was dry and that Mrs C was drunk and jumping on the dancefloor. Cooks obtained evidence refuting this and issued the claim at Court. Settlement was reached just prior to the trial when Mrs C was awarded £20,000.00 she said:
"I would just like to say thanks to the staff who have been first class explaining things to me all the way and keeping me informed."
