Serious Injury

Several of our lawyers have spent many years specialising in acting for clients who have suffered serious and often catastrophic injuries. This includes many cases where our clients have suffered severe brain injuries or spinal cord injuries overseas. Those who suffer serious injuries often have substantial care needs. They may have suffered substantial wage loss and they may have special accommodation, medical or other needs.

It is critically important that those with head injuries, brain injuries and spinal injuries and their families need to ensure that they get the best advice and representation.

Differing ways of assessing compensation overseas, differing insurance and other limits often apply meaning that choice of jurisdiction and choice of law issues can make a very substantial difference to the level of damages which are recovered.

Our lawyers are able to give specialist advice to those with severe injuries and with years of experience in maximising awards of compensation for our clients. We are able to provide the reassurance you need when selecting your solicitor. We always seek early interim payments of compensation wherever possible.

We can also assist with arranging rehabilitation, therapy, suitable housing, transport, domestic aids and appliances. We can also assist with arranging funding and personal care, either provided professionally or by family members, as well as seeking to maximise your claim for compensation.

Successful cases

We have been involved with many successful foreign brain injury, head injury and spinal injury claims over the years recovering millions of pounds in compensation. Here are just a few examples:
