Brain and head injury compensation claims
Helping you rebuild your life after a brain or head injury
Every year around 1 million people attend hospital suffering from some form of head trauma or brain injury. A significant number of people will suffer on-going symptoms after head injury, ranging from mild, short term difficulty with memory, through to severe lifelong cognitive disability.
A severe brain or head injury can turn lives upside down. The whole family will be faced with the challenge of coming to terms with the injury and then re-building their lives. To do so, you will need lots of help and support to first recover, and then secure your financial future.
There is often a stigma attached to bringing a claim for compensation, but by doing so, you give yourself the chance of securing the best possible treatment, rehabilitation, care and support that would otherwise be out of reach. We have experienced, specialist brain and head injury lawyers to advise you about the merits of bringing a claim and guide you successfully through the process.
What our injury lawyers can do for you
Understanding brain injury and its consequences is key to working with those that have suffered from one. Our team of brain injury solicitors specialise in dealing with the issues that arise from brain injury, such as bringing claims for brain injury compensation and advising on issues relating to capacity, financial affairs and care. Our goal is to help you recover from your injuries and get your life back on track as soon as possible.
How we can help:
Our specialist brain injury solicitors will focus on the provision of suitable rehabilitation at a very early stage and use the litigation process to meet the cost of this on a private basis from the outset. We may also arrange to appoint a case manager to coordinate on-going rehabilitation and to ensure that it is adapted to meet your continuing needs.
Depending on the extent and effects of your injury, we can pursue compensation for:
- medical treatment, rehabilitation and care
- loss of earnings
- accommodation (new or adapted), equipment and transport
- an award for the brain injury itself
Ongoing legal support
Clarke Willmott is a full-service law firm, so unlike many other solicitors offering spine injury advice, we can give you expert guidance on any other legal matters arising from your injury, such as employment issues or protecting your interests if you lose capacity to manage your affairs.
