They call it a hidden disability but for those closest to someone who has an acquired brain injury it is anything but hidden. It is hard to imagine or understand the consequences for someone who is affected by a brain injury. Digby Brown has been helping the families of a loved one who has sustained a brain injury as a result of negligence in an accident, for many years. We have worked with people and organisations involved in brain injury for over 30 years and this experience truly allows us to call ourselves experts in our field.
As a family member of someone, who is a patient in hospital or has been recently discharged, you are still reeling from the immediate aftermath of a serious accident. You will have many questions. Some of them you might not at this stage want to know the answer to. We understand this, we have helped many other families in the same situation, over time, come to terms with the situation and deal with the issues.
Fundamental to this is gaining financial compensation however knowing when and how you will need this compensation is where our expertise really lies. We work alongside Headway, both locally and nationally, the Child Brain Injury Trust, Momentum, the Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust and the Huntercombe Group. We are also members of the Scottish Head Injury Forum and the Brain Injury Network Group.
