Sustaining a head injury can often damage the brain, leading to long-term physical disabilities and behavioural or psychological difficulties. Sometimes the injury may appear less severe initially. Yet the consequences can be devastating and have a huge impact on the victim and their family.
With our many years’ experience of brain injuries caused by an accident, we know how distressing it can be for everyone involved. So we take a holistic approach: not just focusing on winning your compensation, but also on putting the right support in place to rebuild your life.
We are supporters of Headway, the charity devoted to improving life after brain injury, which helps us gain extra knowledge and improve our advice to you. Assessing your legal case will need input from several medical experts, to ensure a correct diagnosis and the right rehabilitation programme.
In cases involving very severe injuries, a family member may be unable to make their decisions for themselves. In this situation an application may have to be made to the Court of Protection for a named individual to become a Deputy – a person who can make decisions on their behalf. It’s often the person closest to a severely injured client that will apply to be a Deputy.
We have a specialist department that deals with these issues, and they will guide you through this process.
