Our Services


Paraplegics often require lifelong qualified legal advice. The focus is on social issues, whereby SPV members have access at all time to our free counseling in legal matters, as long as these have a direct connection to the disability.
All lawyers of the Institute for Legal Advice are proven specialists in the field of social security law. For years, we have been advising, in particular para-and tetraplegics, on all issues connected with their spinal cord injury. We represent their interests to the social insurances.
We fight on behalf of our clientele against unjustified delays, reductions and entitlement denials. We also take legal action whenever it is considered necessary.
