When a loved one suffers a brain injury through no fault of their own, families must seek immediate legal advice to safeguard that person’s health and recovery.

Our specialist brain injury solicitors are here to support the injured person and their family and to guide them through the claims process.

Whether you’ve been injured on the road, at work, or in a public place, we understand the scale of disruption and the stress and upset that this type of injury can cause.

Our head injury lawyers have experience handling child brain injury cases, helping families adjust to the life changing effects of their child’s injury.

Beyond the immediate physical damage, brain injuries put a huge strain on finances, quality of life and family relationships.

It is essential to get high quality legal advice at an early stage, which is why we offer a free initial consultation to enable us to assess your claim and to explain what we can do to help you.

Brain injury claims can be complex, but we will deal your claim efficiently and pro-actively to obtain the best outcome in terms of both your rehabilitation and the compensation we obtain for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much compensation do you get for brain injury?

The amount of possible compensation you or a loved one could get with a successful brain injury claim firstly depends on the severity of the injury.

You could be looking anywhere between a few thousand pounds for a minor brain or head injury, up into a six figure sum, where the most severe forms of brain damage are sustained.

Each case is different and what one person may get from one claim may differ from another person, due to many different factors.

A solicitor will be able to give a ballpark figure after evaluating your circumstances and seeing if you have grounds for a claim.

What should you do if you hit your head at work?

Seek medical attention urgently and ensure your manager or a colleague is informed so that it can be reported.

Any accidents causing serious head injury must not only be reported in an accident book but the employer should also report it to the Health and Safety Executive.

If your head injury is severe or debilitating enough that you feel you have grounds for a claim, there is a time limit of three years from the incident to do so.
