Our highly specialised personal injury solicitors have in-depth experience in dealing with complex compensation claims for adults and children who have suffered brain injury. A brain injury can have a major long-term impact on the life of the sufferer and often on his or her friends and family. Ensuring the right amount of compensation is paid can give someone access to the support they need throughout their lives and ease the care load for loved ones.
Compensation plays an important part in the recovery process since it can enable better treatment and more rehabilitation than would be available on the NHS. Rehabilitation may not reverse the effects of a brain injury but it can increase recovery and be used to find coping strategies to lessen the impact of ongoing symptoms.
The symptoms of acquired brain injury are unique to each individual. They can include problems with memory, concentration, speech, mobility, and personality and behavioural changes. A range of specialist medics is needed to properly assess the injuries for the purposes of the claim.
This kind of compensation claim is complex and requires a personal injury solicitor with specialist experience in the area of brain injuries and an understanding of the ongoing implications for people’s lives.
