Spinal injuries may often feel no more than a bad back pain, and initially you may pay little attention to them, or maybe take a couple of painkilling tablets. However, you should always have any type of back pain you experience examined by a doctor due to the risk of spinal injury. If you have been involved in an accident, spinal injury law decrees that any claim for spinal injury compensation has to be accompanied by your relevant medical notes. Not only will an examination by a doctor reveal the potential for any long term damage to your spine, but his expertise will be of paramount importance when it comes to making a claim for spinal injury compensation.
Because the spinal cord acts as a communications gateway between the brain and the rest of the body, untreated spinal injuries can lead to serious adverse effects such as paralysis, circulatory and digestive problems, infection, difficulties with balance and behavioural disorders. Even when timely medical treatment is administered, the rehabilitation of somebody who has received a chronic spinal injury may require considerable occupational therapy. The cost of this therapy and any ongoing care has to be integrated into a spinal injury claim, and a lawyer with knowledge of spinal injury law will be the best person to assist you when making a spinal injury compensation claim.
Making a Spinal Injury Compensation Claim
Claims for spinal injury compensation are made to the Injuries Board Ireland when your injuries are due to an accident for which you were not to blame. As well as claiming spinal injury compensation for the physical trauma you or a loved one has experienced, they will have to claim special damages to account for ongoing care and therapy mentioned above and any loss of earnings suffered by the victim. The special damages section of the Injury Board Ireland´s application form is key to ensuring that you are not undercompensated for your spinal injuries. A spinal injury law solicitor will know exactly what you are entitled to make a spinal injury claim for and how best to do it.
Because of the potential for a large spinal injury compensation payment, insurance companies representing the negligent party may well try to deny their client´s liability for the accident which caused your injuries, or approach you with an inadequate offer of early settlement for your spinal injury compensation claim. In both these instances, a specialist spinal injury law solicitor will know the actions to take to ensure you receive a fair amount of spinal injury compensation.
