Legal Advice in Scotland
Our Legal panel includes partners we have researched extensively, to ensure the highest level of expert knowledge in Cauda Equina Syndrome medical negligence cases. Not every case of Cauda Equina Syndrome injury arises from medical negligence and not everybody wants to go down that route. But for those that do, we wanted to ensure you had access to the right legal advice. If you have suffered Cauda Equina Syndrome and have been left with permanent, life changing injuries, it is imperative that you speak to the firms that genuinely understand the impact this has on you or your loved ones, who understand how life has changed in a significant way not only for you, but also for those around you. We recognise you may wish to choose your own lawyers and that is your absolute prerogative but our Legal panel members also offer specialist advice on a wide range of issues, from supporting with a compensation claim, pursuing a claim for welfare benefits, helping with obtaining support and care from social services and the local authority, through to understanding what your employment rights are if you need to take time off work. Legal panel firms have been chosen for their expertise, customer service, results and above all, passion for the client.
Why have we done this?
As a non-profit making organisation that provides support to those suffering the effects of Cauda Equina Syndrome we have repeatedly been asked to recommend a law firm to help people in their medical negligence claims and in relation to seeking general legal support on many related issues.
Due to the nature of our condition, for some people, the results of a Cauda Equina injury can be life-changing. Life becomes inevitably a lot harder physically, mentally, practically and financially. Every area of your life is strained. If you believe this may have been because the medical professionals may have done something wrong, it is entirely understandable you may want to seek specialist advice to have your case assessed and see if your suspicions are correct. It is important to consider your long term future, as well as concentrating on your best recovery. Generally speaking, (although there are some exceptions) you have three years from the date of the negligence or having knowledge of your injury to start the claim process. Please be mindful of the legal window of opportunity you have, and seek advice in a timely fashion. It is always best to take specialist advice to have the time limit assessed, even if three years have passed there may be a valid exception to the general rule.
After hearing many hundreds of people's stories and from our own experience, we know how important it is that you seek advice from reputable sources. They must have plenty of experience in the specialist area of Cauda Equina Syndrome claims. We take this very seriously and feel we are duty-bound to provide you with information to help you find the best advice (UK only).
