Hypoxic Brain Injury

Claiming Compensation for Hypoxic Brain Injury

If your brain was starved of oxygen during or after a medical procedure and you were subsequently diagnosed with cerebral hypoxia or hypoxic brain injury, you may be a victim of medical negligence. If this has happened to you or a relative, you can claim compensation, especially if you expect severe long term effects and disabilities.

Money will be needed to mitigate these effects, covering quality rehabilitation treatment and therapies, special equipment, care and hopefully, an independent future. At Head Injury UK, we make sure that all these elements are taken into account when we act for claimants whose lives have been devastated by someone else’s mistake.

Our Aim: An Award That Covers the Best Available Treatment and Equipment for Life

Our solicitors are passionate and tenacious in pursuing appropriate settlements for victims because a high level of compensation can make such a difference to their futures.

Because we know this is a difficult, emotional time, you will only need to keep in contact with the leader of our specialist team. That person will direct team members who will initially be discussing your circumstances with contacts who are doctors and therapists.

They will then prepare a strong case for your hypoxic brain injury claim and pursue the highest award they can. You can be confident that they will bring all their years of experience of success with claims applications to bear.

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.
