Our specialist solicitors have over 25 years’ experience in achieving strong results in complex claims involving adults and children with brain injuries.
A head or brain injury may be caused by factors as diverse as:
- Direct impact on the brain from, for example, a blow to the head, a collision caused by a fall or road traffic accident or penetration to the brain by a surgical instrument
- Errors and/or delay in diagnosing and treating a serious illness, such as meningitis
- Deprivation of oxygen to the brain, which can arise in a number of ways including delays in delivering a distressed baby in labour and anaesthetic errors
- Inappropriate medication or taking the wrong dosage of medication.
Every brain injury claim is unique and the impact on an individual will depend on the type, location and severity of their injury. Whilst some will make a partial or complete recovery, others experience permanent and profound disability.
Brain injuries have serious consequences for both the injured person and their loved ones. No amount of money can ever truly provide adequate compensation for the devastation caused. However, compensation can help you to manage the consequences by funding much needed care, treatment and therapy, alleviating financial hardship and improving quality of life.
