Spinal Cord Injury

Spinal Cord Injuries may cause some degree of paralysis which can be devastating to the injured party and the whole family and often have lifelong implications.

Barr Ellison offers a wealth of experience in representing clients with spinal cord injuries. We understand and implement a bespoke care package and help with securing interim payments for financial support before assessing the compensation elements.

Our priority in the early stage of any claim is to focus on maximising rehabilitation and put into place highly professional and supportive case management for those in need both during and after the claim for compensation is resolved. We will build up a team for you to provide support workers, therapists, accommodation advisers and other experts depending on your needs. Your financial stability is also important and we obtain interim payments during the progression of the claim.
