Spinal injury at work claims
Spinal Injuries can have devastating effects on an individual and their family. The serious nature of spinal cord injuries often means that those involved can experience severe changes to their lifestyle and wellbeing.
Employers have a duty of care to their employees to ensure that the risks of accidents in the workplace are minimised, reducing the risk of spinal cord injuries occurring and ensuring that their employees can work in a safe environment. When these obligations aren’t met however, the results can be catastrophic.
At Irwin Mitchell, one of the UK's most respected law firms, our lawyers have worked with numerous people who have sustained a spinal cord injury at work resulting in quadriplegia or paraplegia.
Experience in workplace spinal injury claims
Whilst health and safety law means that employers have to work to minimise the risk of injury, spinal injuries do still occur.
Spinal injuries can be the result of various types of accident but the most common include falling from height, such as from stairs, scaffolding, a roof or ceiling, or being crushed by falling objects.
Because of the serious nature of spinal injuries, our service is about much more than just securing compensation for your injuries. Because of the often life changing nature of spinal injuries, we will work to help you and your family with long term support, helping you to access healthcare and rehabilitation help. In some cases, we can even secure interim payments to help fund modifications to your home or urgent healthcare.
