Spinal cord injury compensation claims

Get legal, financial and after-care support

Spinal cord injuries are life-changing. Not only for injured adults and children, but also for families and friends. If you’re in this traumatic situation, we understand what you’re going through – and we know how to help you.

For over 25 years, we at Serious Law have dedicated ourselves to helping rebuild the lives of people affected by serious injury. We only handle high-level cases such as spinal cord injury, and we’re proud to secure regular multi-million pound compensation awards that give our clients the best possible future after injury.

With our experience and commitment to serious injury cases, we make sure that you’re fully compensated for your injuries, never settling for less than you deserve. More than this, with Serious Law you get support that goes far beyond securing your compensation award.

"First and foremost I would like to say a big thank you to you and your team for all the work you have undertaken over the past 3 years which culminated in the positive outcome for XXXX yesterday. From the first time we met I have been very impressed by your honesty, integrity and ability to explain complex issues into normal speak. I don't know if this has been a straight forward or complex case for you but what I do know is that you have provided XXXX with hope and purpose where there so easily could have been a giant void for her after what happened whilst realistically managing her expectations throughout."

- Mr D Jones

"Having spent most of my career working with patients who have suffered a traumatic spinal cord injury, I have seen first-hand the importance of patients appointing a specialist solicitor with deep expertise and understanding of this type of injury.

"The better the expertise of the solicitor, the better the chances of the patient being able to achieve a life-enhancing settlement."
