Expert Legal Advice, Constant Commitment To Client Care

We understand that claiming compensation for the accident itself is not nearly enough. Our main priority is to secure the rehabilitation and care that’s needed, enabling the brain injured person to live as independently as possible and enjoy the best quality of life he or she can. We examine each case from every angle, assessing what will be needed both now and in the future. We’ll fight for the compensation necessary to cover both current and future needs.

Wherever possible we’ll secure interim compensation payments, to assist with providing the best medical and rehabilitation care. This includes provisions for physiotherapy, occupational therapy and any adaptations needed in the home, including any specific aids and appliances. Interim payments can also greatly assist in alleviating financial concerns and can help fund carers, relieving pressure on the families involved.

We’re passionate about providing a comprehensive service and dealing with all the implications of the brain injury. Our lawyers work closely with medical, care and rehabilitation experts to establish and fund a fully co-ordinated care package that enables our clients to make the best possible recovery. In cases of serious brain injury, the client may be unable to manage their financial affairs and our specialist lawyers are available to help deal with these difficulties. We also have Court of Protection specialists on hand who can help by acting as professional deputies or assist any appointed lay deputies. We can also assist with preparing statutory Wills.

In addition to compensation for the injuries sustained and day-to-day requirements, we also seek compensation for current and future loss of earnings. We can also advise on and help with applications for state disability benefits. At the conclusion of the claim, we seek the very best independent financial advice to preserve and enhance the compensation received and make sure the compensation lasts a lifetime.

Our lawyers understand that no two brain injuries are alike and that each person’s medical and rehabilitation needs will be different. We provide every client with solutions that are completely tailored to their individual needs and offer a one-to-one personal service, with home and hospital visits to make the process as stress-free as possible.

Frequently Asked Questions
  • Am I too late to bring a claim?
  • In personal injury claims the general rule is that within 3 years from the date of the accident the claim must either be settled or court proceedings must have been commenced failing which the claim will be statute barred. However if you are under 18, the 3 year period does not commence until the age of 21 i.e. 3 years from your 18th birthday. If you do not have mental capacity the 3 year limitation period will not apply.

    In all cases, it is important to seek specialist advice as early as possible.

  • How much is my claim worth?
  • It is difficult to estimate the value of any claim at the outset and this is particularly so with brain and head injuries. There will often be a need for expert evidence from many experts to deal with the nature and extent of the injury and the consequences of the injury on the Client’s ability to function. Serious head and brain injury claims will attract substantial awards and involve numerous heads of claim.

  • Will it be necessary for me to attend court?
  • Most personal injury claims are settled without the need for the client to attend court to give evidence. However, if liability remains in dispute or the parties are unable to agree the value of the claim, you may be required to attend court. In the case of a child or a protected party, any agreed settlement must be approved by the court.

  • How long will my claim take?
  • It is impossible to predict with any certainty how long your claim will take. All cases are different and each case will have to be considered on its own merits. The usual factors which will dictate the duration of her claim will be whether liability is in dispute and whether the experts are able to give a final opinion and prognosis. Some head and brain injury claims, particularly those on behalf of children, cannot be resolved for many years as the claims need to be investigated carefully and monitored so as to ensure that all symptoms and difficulties have been identified by the experts. Sometimes there can be symptoms which do not come to light for many years or worsen during adolescence. There is a fine balance to be achieved between progressing the claim efficiently and ensuring all symptoms from the brain injury have been identified.

  • Will I be entitled to an interim payment?
  • An interim payment is a sum of money paid by the Defendant in partial settlement of your claim. Interim payments are usually made where there has been an admission of liability from the Defendant or where judgment has been entered or where it is likely that a compensation payment will be made if the case went to trial. Interim payments can be extremely helpful in serious head and brain injury cases which can take many years to resolve. A Defendant will not usually make an interim payment of more than a reasonable proportion of the likely value of the final settlement. Interim payments can ease the severe financial burden which usually follows a head and brain injury. They can be used to cover essential needs such as care, medical treatment, rehabilitation and accommodation expenses. If a Defendant unreasonably refuses to make an interim payment an application can be made to the court for an order.
