Claiming For A Paralysis Injury
If you have suffered from paralysis as a result of someone else’s negligence, you could claim paralysis compensation. Paralysis can cause a loss of movement in one or both sides of your body, or it could cause a loss of movement of any of your limbs. Paralysis can be temporary or permanent. If there is damage to the vertebrae in your spine during an accident, this may cause a loss of movement from the neck down, resulting in temporary or permanent paralysis.
If the accident that caused you to suffer paralysis happened because of someone else’s negligence, you could be able to claim compensation as a result. To find out whether you can claim paralysis compensation, contact Jefferies Solicitors today.
Types Of Paralysis Compensation Claims
Paralysis injuries are usually caused by a serious accident. There are many different types of accidents that occur in lots of different environments, that could cause you to suffer from paralysis.
Some of the accidents that are most likely to cause paralysis include:
- Road traffic accident.
- Fall from height accident – likely to occur at work.
- Crushing accident – likely caused by machinery in the workplace.
- Forklift-related accident in the workplace.
- Accidents related to heavy items falling from shelves and onto the victim – likely to occur in a warehouse or stockroom.
If your accident happens at work or in a public place, you could be able to claim paralysis compensation if it was due to someone else’s negligence. Your employer has a duty of care towards you to protect your safety. In order to do this, they should follow certain health and safety regulations that are related to your industry. The Health and Safety Executive outlines guidelines that employers in every industry must follow.
If your accident occurred in a public place and it was due to someone’s negligence, you could be able to claim paralysis compensation. Local businesses and authorities have a duty of care towards their customers and visitors to ensure their safety. To do this, they should follow any relevant health and safety guidelines that pertain to the type of business or public area that they run. If they fail to do so and you are injured as a result, you could claim paralysis compensation.
It is also important to also note that paralysis can occur due to medical negligence. You could perhaps be injured due to the behaviour during surgery. If the medical professional who was supposed to take care of you was incompetent or failed in their duty of care to you, you could be able to claim paralysis compensation.
No matter where your accident has occurred, if someone else caused you to suffer paralysis, you could be able to claim paralysis compensation. Contact Jefferies Solicitors to find out how much compensation you could claim.
The amount of paralysis compensation that you will receive will depend upon the specific details of your case. This amount of compensation is calculated by looking at two specific categories: general damages and special damages.
The pain and suffering that your injuries have caused is the main factor that is used to determine how much compensation you are owed. This will usually be determined by undergoing a medical examination, from which a report is created that outlines the length of time the injuries will take to heal as well as their severity.
Our compensation calculator gives an indication of how much you might be entitled to based upon your injuries. Jefferies Solicitors will take these different details about your injury into account when calculating how much compensation you should be awarded.
Compensation also takes into account any financial losses that you might have suffered as a result of your injuries, such as a loss of earnings due to being unable to return to work. If you have had to pay for treatment or travel to treatment, compensation may also be able to cover this as well. Therefore, you should keep any receipts or other documents that help to outline the extent of your financial losses, as caused by your condition.ELIGIBILITY CHECKER
