Traumatic brain injury claim
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
We're also aware that, in cases of brain injury, we cannot consider the brain injured person in isolation. It's important that we understand the implications for your entire family, so it's crucial that we work closely with you and your loved ones. Brain injury is 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.
Knowledge, experience and understanding
We have a strong team of experienced brain injury lawyers who understand the sweeping changes brain injury brings. 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.
How we can help with brain injury claims
Our lawyers are expert in brain injury cases and know how these can impact your family. Because of our understanding and experience, we're able to explain what brain injury means and how it will affect you. We've 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 on people of brain injury. We can help you with all the legal aspects of making a 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.
Brain Injury: Practical legal advice
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'll 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.
