    Making a claim

    We take care of the legal side, so that you and your loved ones can concentrate on the healing process, both physically and mentally.

    How much compensation?

    How much compensation for spinal injures?

    Spinal injuries will often attract very substantial compensation awards – and deservedly so. Claimants are entitled to be financially compensated not only for the physical pain and suffering of the injury itself, but also for rehabilitation costs, specialist care and equipment and the cost of home modifications.

    In addition, our experienced solicitors will advise on the complex issues of past and future wage loss and pension rights – often forming the largest part of the eventual financial settlement.

    We will also advise on interim payments that may be required to meet immediate costs, including specialist care, accommodation and equipment,

    At Watermans, we are able to offer clients private rehabilitation and medical care through our unique Total Care programme.
