Every year around 1 million people attend hospital suffering from some form of head injury. A significant number of people will suffer on-going symptoms after head injury, ranging from mild, short term difficulty with memory, through to severe lifelong cognitive disability.
Head, or more appropriately, brain injuries are put into different categories. These categories are determined by the amount of time that has passed, when the extent of recovery or ongoing symptoms can be identified.
Understanding brain injury and its consequences is key to working with those that have suffered from one. Our team of catastrophic injury solicitors specialise in dealing with the issues that arise from brain injury, such as bringing claims for brain injury compensation and advising on issues relating to capacity, financial affairs and care.
