Spinal Cord Injury Awareness Day


Written by Mumtaz Hussain

Today May 13th is “spinal cord injury awareness day”, an annual event led by Spinal Injuries Association. The theme this year is to highlight the many daily challenges faced by those who have suffered a spinal cord injury.

Often it’s easy to take simple things for granted, such as filling the kettle for a cup of tea or making the bed. However for someone with a spinal cord injury these simple tasks can present as a major challenge. Climbing stairs can also be very difficult, and sometimes simply not at all possible, depending on how complete their injury is.

We have previously heard from our own Hema Vekaria, an Associate solicitor on our personal injury team, who sustained a spinal cord injury in 2018. Hema has written about her experience in this personal account.

All spinal cord injuries are different and recovery varies from person to person. Fortunately Hema is able to walk although she was a wheelchair user for a time. As a result of having experienced first hand what it means to sustain such an injury, Hema is easily able to empathise with her clients who have sustained similar injuries.

As a team, we are passionately dedicated and focused on providing support for our clients who, through no fault of their own, have sustained a spinal cord injury. Where we provide our considerable expertise to ensuring our client’s legal battle is hard fought and successful, we rely on collaborations with organisations such as Spinal injuries Association, so that our clients also have a support network that runs alongside the legal side of matters.
