The serious injury team at Shoosmiths Access Legal has represented many clients who have suffered a brain injury and helped those people to get compensation and access early treatment and rehabilitation to help them recover as quickly as possible.
Brain injuries are still poorly understood and you need to be certain that whoever provides legal advice understands what you and your family are going through and can give you the right guidance, advice and support to help you through this difficult time. We understand the sweeping changes such an injury means to you and the impact it has on your nearest and dearest. It is important that we understand the implications for your entire family, so it's crucial that we work closely with you and your loved ones. We have a strong national team of solicitors working out of 10 offices throughout the UK. Many are members of the Law Society Personal Injury Panel and the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers and have established links with charities such as Headway which supports brain injury victims and their families. Our national team are expert brain injury solicitors with understanding and experience of traumatic brain injuries, acquired brain injuries, closed head injuries and open head injuries. We will explain what the injury means and how it will affect you and can help with all the legal aspects of making a brain injury compensation claim. The team have also produced an informative guide to brain injury and an infographic looking at the causes and effects of brain injury. We can assist you in securing the correct medical treatment and the best rehabilitation providers for your injury, give you advice about how to minimise the financial impact of the injury and how to protect any compensation award while maintaining your entitlement to state benefits. We pride ourselves in building relationships with our clients and their families which 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 and for as long as needed to promote your recovery. 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 in language that makes sense to you, without all the usual jargon and lawyer speak. We will tell you exactly how to fund a claim, get interim payments and what options exist for rehabilitation. The range and depth of our expertise across the firm also means we can advise on related issues such as Personal Injury Trusts and applications to the Court of Protection.
