Brain injury victims may lose out

People left with brain injury following an accident should seek advice from a specialist brain injury solicitor, experienced in the handling brain injury claims, urges The Law Society of England and Wales, or they may lose out on essential compensation.

'Don't get mugged by an insurer'

As part of The Law Society’s current campaign warning people against dealing directly with an insurer and advising them to use a specialist solicitor, Desmond Hudson their chief executive said,

'The law in this country is clear: if you are harmed by the negligence of others, you are entitled to fair compensation.  Solicitors specialising in personal injuries help to ensure this happens.

Serious and debilitating injuries, loss of earnings or an inability to lead a normal  life must not to be glibly dismissed in the myth of 'compensation culture’.

People who suffer brain or spinal damage in many cases are not able to work. Some require round-the-clock care. It is absolutely vital that they get the compensation they deserve in order to pay for the support and care they may need, for months, years or lifetimes.'

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.
