Bolt Burdon Kemp

Bolt Burdon Kemp is extremely proud to partner with CESA to support those with cauda equina syndrome.

Our dedicated Spinal Injury team only represent those with a spinal injury claim, and have extensive experience in representing clients in cases involving a diagnosis of cauda equina syndrome. We understand, not only the life-changing nature of this condition, but also the lack of understanding that surrounds the condition – not just for you but also for your loved ones.

Alongside the legal claims we run we also regularly campaign to raise awareness of the issues faced by the SCI community, and we firmly believe our relationship with CESA will increase our insight in to the difficulties faced by the CES community and help us educate others in this arena. We run our Design the Change competition to increase awareness in the next generation as to the need of those with spinal cord injuries, in the hope that they will retain this insight throughout their careers. We have also held a Wheelchair Awareness Day to give barristers an insight into life in a wheelchair.

Meet Alex Dabek

Alex is a Senior Associate in the Spinal Injury team at Bolt Burdon Kemp.  Alex specialises in claims involving cauda equina syndrome.

Alex is immensely passionate about her work.  Improving the quality of life for her clients and getting the best results for them is what most motivates her.  Alex’s priority is to ensure that her clients are fully compensated for their injuries and the financial losses they have suffered and that their claims are concluded swiftly.

Recently Alex acted for a client who developed Cauda Equina Syndrome following spinal surgery at a private hospital.  Our client was left with seriously reduced mobility as well as permanent bladder and bowel dysfunction.  The case involved a number of complex issues and the private hospital strongly defended the claim.  Alex was able to secure some much needed mobility equipment for the client in the early stages of the claim to allow her a greater degree of independence.  Alex fought hard to achieve a £1 million settlement which allowed our client to return to a quality of life as close as possible to that which she had before her injury.

Alex has been recognised as a key lawyer within the clinical negligence sector by the Legal 500 2021.
