Expert spinal injury lawyers

A spinal cord injury is one of the most severe injuries a person can suffer, and often has life-changing consequences. You may need to use a wheelchair and require ongoing medical care to manage bladder or bowel issues. When you choose Osbornes to represent you, we see it as our responsibility to ensure that you receive the best professional care at the earliest opportunity, as well as the compensation to fund it.

Our expert spinal injury lawyers will work with leading medical experts to measure the impact of your injury and how it may develop over time. Armed with this assessment, our aim is for you to receive the very best care package which will include continued treatment, rehabilitation and the appropriate financial award. A priority for us is to unlock interim payments so that you have funds available throughout your case. If you are unable to return to your previous employment, we will also make sure the financial payment you receive reflects this fact.
