Brain Tumour

Claiming Compensation for a Brain Tumour

Medical negligence cases involving misdiagnosis of a brain tumour or not treating it promptly or correctly are not uncommon. Even when life span is not reduced, after such a medical accident, survivors are often left with disabling symptoms of paralysis, speech, confusion or memory problems that may not be reversed.

If this applies to you or a family member, you should seek advice on making a claim for compensation. This also applies if the brain tumour resulted from any kind of accident which was not your fault.

At Head Injury UK, our team of brain trauma claims lawyers has over 70 years of collective experience, achieving the high levels of compensation that make a big difference to the subsequent lives of the victims.

They will push to get you access to quality treatment and therapies, to provide the care needed and the most independent living possible for the sufferer’s condition.

Our Aim: To Bring the Maximum Possible Award When it’s Needed Most

Head Injury UK will allocate a brain injury manager to be your contact and direct your claims team, who will liaise with appropriate experts in the medical professions to develop a strong case for your claim.

If interim payments for early private treatments would help, they will apply for those. If index-linked regular amounts for life are needed to fund the best care possible and cover loss of earnings for the victim or those charged with their care, they will apply for those too. Their aim will be to ensure you receive justice and have the resources you need, when you need them, now and in the future.

Brain Tumour Diagnosis Delay

Ann's brain tumour was diagnosed later than it should have been, causing her to become very poorly and her outcome now is worse than it might have been, had she been treated in good time.  Liability is admitted and a significant interim payment made already, whilst we work to finalise her claim.  Anne unfortunately now lacks the necessary mental capacity to make her own decisions, so we have asked the Court of Protection to appoint a Deputy to protect her interests.

What our clients say

We know that we have been extremely fortunate to have had such a consummate PI lawyer in Andy acting on our behalf but we have also been blessed by having had his support, trust, friendship and loyalty throughout. We cannot ever thank him enough.

The compensation Nicola has received has helped her move from a tiny council flat into a massive bungalow which has been specifically adapted. It has enabled her to have a better life.

If it was not for the help of my solicitor I don't know where I would have been today. He provided a great deal of emotional support and secured compensation at various stages from the insurance company to fund my treatment and allow me to live. He was there from start to finish.

Higgs & Sons acted for us for 5 years until our daughters claim for personal injuries was finally settled. Ian remains a trustee of our daughters trust fund and we now look upon him as a friend.
