Paralysis

Some of the most serious injuries you could suffer are a form of paralysis. Such injuries tend to have not only an impact on the individual who suffered injury but their family, many of whom often provide care for the injured person. Suffering any form of paralysis is likely to affect your living space, capacity for work, social life and state of mind.

Types of paralysis

Paralysis can affect all or some of your limbs or just certain areas such as your foot or arm.

The following are commonly used terms:

  • Monoplegia – where one limb is paralysed
  • Hemiplegia – where both an arm and a leg on the same side of the body are paralysed
  • Paraplegia – where both legs are paralysed
  • Tetraplegia – where both arms and legs are paralysed

Common Causes

Paralysis is usually caused as a result of a stroke, head injury or spinal cord injury. Such injuries are commonly caused in road traffic collisions and accidents at work, especially where the employee is working from a height or working with dangerous machinery or equipment.

Our Solicitors have the technical knowledge but also the sensitivity to advise and represent individuals who have suffered serious injuries including those with paralysis.

We understand that the most important issue is arranging the best possible treatment and therapy available. This often means arranging treatment on a private basis. This treatment is often best identified by the instruction of a Case Manager who can assess and visit the injured person regularly to monitor progress and identify future therapies available. Such treatment will often require early interim payments from the at-fault party which your Solicitor can advise you upon and obtain on your behalf.

"Process was made simple"

My experience with Aequitas Legal was excellent overall. The process was made very simple and took up very little time on my part, particularly with use of the 'InCase' App and emails. My caseworker, Jane Hargreaves, was very approachable and friendly, and responded to queries promptly. I was expecting my case to take the best part of 6 months to resolve but was settled with my cheque in the post within just a few months. Very impressed at such a stress free and innovative experience and would recommend to others.

Aequitas Legal, a very professional company from Katie who helped with my initial inquiry to Suzanne, the solicitor, who handled my case.

Great customer service with prompt responses to questions and queries, I would not hesitate to recommend them.
Thank you for a quick and easy settlement.

Claimant suffered a lower back pain injury

I represented the Claimant who was working in the course of her employment at a service station. Pre-accident the Claimant was suffering from back pains and her employers were fully aware of this. Management continued to ask her to complete physically demanding jobs and her protests were ignored, which led to the worsening of her low back pains, causing her to suffer a lower back injury. The claimant experienced high levels of back pain whilst undertaking these manual handling activities and was absent from work for 4 months.

Liability was fiercely denied, the Defendant relied upon manual training which had be completed and a health assessment which stated that the Claimant confirmed that she did not have any back complaints. The Claimant maintained that they were fully aware and they would force her to carry out such manual tasks, which at times she physically could not do and would cry with the pain. Proceedings were issued. The case went to trial and the Judge found in favour of the Claimant.

The claim settled for £20,232.00 and consisted of compensation for injuries sustained and loss of earnings, medication and travel expenses.
