For the individual and their family a brain injury, even a seemingly innocuous one, can be a catastrophe.
Our team has a wealth of experience in a very wide range of brain injury cases. Damian Short and Jane Gilbert, two members of the team, are respectively Chairman and Director of the Norfolk & Waveney branch of Headway, the national charity for the head injured.
We have dealt with brain injury claims arising from:
- Road traffic accidents
- Accidents at work
- Clinical negligence
We have dealt with claims arising both in the United Kingdom and in Europe. By bringing the claim in the English courts we have ensured that our clients’ compensation has been maximised.
Importantly, we make sure that compensation is delivered in the right format – and that means going beyond the critical financial compensation for injuries and financial losses, to help deliver the following:
- Access to specialist rehabilitation services
- Access to specialist vocational rehabilitation services for return to work or education
- Appropriate support worker/care regimes
- Suitable housing
- Specialist transport/vehicles to overcome mobility problems
- Purchase of specialist communication equipment and IT
We are accredited members of the Headway Personal Injury Solicitors list due to our work on behalf of those who have suffered head injuries. We are also on the Law Society Personal Injury panel and Senior Litigator members of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers.
We operate a free initial interview and advice scheme in this area and both Damian and Jane are happy to see clients at home or at a hospital. We can also offer a variety of ways to fund a claim, including (but not limited to) ‘No Win, No Fee’ agreements.
