Why choose Head Injury UK ?

It is important that anyone with a head injury seeks the best possible legal representation from the outset. Not all solicitors have this expertise. Head injury claims are complex and require a great amount of on-going support and more importantly access to top professionals who can assist in rehabilitation and advice.  Listen to Ian Shovlin the head of Head Injury UK explain why it is important to instruct a specialist head injury solicitor.

Your Rehabilitation Following a Head Injury

This is a main objective following a serious injury. Our team will support you as you regain the social skills that might have been lost as a result of the injury.

The key here is development at a pace which suits you including;

  • accessing community activities, preventing feelings of isolation and deterioration.
  • re-learning lost skills including re-education, improving cognitive functions (memory, thought process) and social skills (aggression, inhibition and speech)
  • learning how to recognise and modify behaviour and how to cope with changes
  • understanding the condition and access to information
  • improving self-confidence and self esteem

Head Injury UK: Our Experience

The experience of our solicitors means they see at first hand the devastation to lives affected by serious injury. Your solicitor is familiar with the Rehabilitation Code and, working with the insurance company, will ensure your rehabilitation needs are met privately. This is particularly important in view of limitations on rehabilitation in the NHS.

We are not just familiar with the legal process but also the medical process, understanding what you are going through and exactly what treatment is available.

Often handling complex claims, we make provision financially for the future costs and concerns. With this in mind, we will make the most of securing interim payments to help you through difficult times, rather than waiting until the end of the legal process to secure you money.

Head Injury UK: Our philosophy

Our philosophy is to ensure that we build great relationships with our clients. Ian Shovlin explains that our solicitors will deliver legal advice in a friendly and down to earth manner, working towards a just outcome together as a team.

Working with the best case managers, rehabilitation centres, barristers and medical experts we will compile a case which takes into account all your future needs. Barristers are always on hand to assist in preparing your case and dealing with all of the complex legal issues.

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.
