The impact of a brain injury cannot be underestimated. Aside from any compensation, the most crucial consideration is to get the right treatment and rehabilitation in place to help you recover as quickly as possible and return your life to normal
Shoosmiths Access Legal got me the rehab I needed and really helped with my family. They were fantastic throughout."
We are also aware that we cannot consider the brain injured person in isolation. It is important that we understand the implications for your entire family, so it's crucial that we work closely with you and your loved ones. These injuries are still poorly understood and whether you seek medical or legal advice you need to be certain that whoever provides it understands what you're going through and can provide guidance, advice and support to help you through this difficult time.
We have a strong team of solicitors experienced in dealing with vicitims of brain injury, who also understand the sweeping changes such an event means for victim and their nearest and dearest. We pride ourselves in building strong relationships with our clients and their families and many of those relationships have continued long after claims have been settled. We'll always visit you at home, no matter where you live, and work closely with medical experts and rehabilitation providers to make sure support is provided as quickly as possible to promote your recovery.
Our team are expert brain injury solicitors with the understanding and experience to be able to explain what the injury means and how it will affect you. We have dealt with traumatic brain injuries (resulting from a blow or an accident), acquired brain injuries (any injury that has happened since birth), closed head injuries (where the skull remains intact) and open head injuries (where something penetrates the skull into the brain). We have also produced an infographic on traumatic brain injury and the effects it can have as well as a comprehensive guide covering the causes and effects of brain injury. We can help you with all the legal aspects of making a brain injury compensation claim, assist in securing the correct medical treatments, advise on the financial impact of the injury and how to protect any compensation award and maintain state benefits.
We can give informed and practical advice about whether you have a claim and what you can claim for. We'll explain the legal process and how long your claim might take in language that makes sense to you, without all the usual jargon and lawyer speak. We will tell you exactly how to fund a claim, get interim payments and what options exist for rehabilitation. The range and depth of our expertise also means we can advise on related issues such as state provision and benefits, personal injury trusts and applications to the Court of Protection.
We aim to provide an effective, knowledgeable but sympathetic and friendly legal support service for you and your family, keeping you informed of progress at every stage of your case.
