Action for Brain Injury Week

Action for Brain Injury Week: 12 - 18 May 2014

Headway, the brain injury association has announced its annual Action for Brain Injury Week 2014.  Against a background of cuts to welfare benefits, local authority and NHS budgets, Headway's key message on behalf of brain injury survivors and their families is 'Don't cut me out!'

How are cuts affecting people with brain injury?

To help understand how the welfare benefits reforms and cuts to local authority funding is affecting people with brain injury, Headway surveyed people's experiences and will release the results during Action for Brain Injury Week.

It is hoped that the campaign will increase awareness of how reduced access to vital support services as a result of funding cuts and welfare reforms is impacting people affected by brain injury.

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.
