Brain injuries often have long lasting, life changing impacts and making a claim is a way to fund the care and support you’ll need as well as offsetting the loss of earning potential that you or your loved one may now be facing.

We can help even when the person injured does not have the mental capacity to make the claim themselves. Our experienced team will explain your options in full.
We understand the needs of our clients and their families, and we succeed in complex, high value brain injury compensation claims where others might give up.
We offer no win no fee arrangements and initial free consultations to help you decide how to progress. We are happy to speak with people who have launched a case with another solicitor and would like a second opinion or are dissatisfied with the service so far.

HOW MUCH COMPENSATION WILL I GET FOR A BRAIN INJURY CLAIM?

Compensation for brain injuries, especially severe brain injuries, is often very substantial and can run into hundreds of thousands, even millions of pounds. The awards are so large in complex cases because they are intended to cover all the future needs someone will have as a result of the injury.
Compensation is made up of two elements – general damages and special damages.
The general damages element is intended to provide compensation for the pain, loss of amenity and suffering caused by a brain injury. There are guidelines on how much this part of the payment should be.
In addition to a general damages claim our traumatic brain injury solicitors will put together a special damages claim that is unique to you. This element of the claim can be very comprehensive as it is intended to itemise and cover for all your future and current needs in relation to the brain injury. That means everything from communication and mobility equipment and technology to house adaptations and carers.
It will take many months, usually years, to develop this list and negotiate a payment accordingly. We will always seek interim payments to cover immediate costs you may have before the final settlement is agreed. Interim payments can be substantial in themselves, and offer early financial relief when your resources are being strained by the increased expense of caring for a person with a brain injury.
