Coronation Street raising Brain Injury awareness

Since early August the soap opera Coronation Street has been running a  brain injury story about Nick Tilsley.  Left in a coma following a serious car crash, Nick has needed surgery to remove a blood clot from his brain.

Changed Personality

The story line however is highlighting the character’s changed personality after waking up from his coma.  No longer a nice guy, Nick displays obsessional behaviour and anger problems, which will affect his relationships with those closest to him.

Headway the brain injury association has worked with the programme’s researchers, to give them a real insight into how brain injury victims and their families are truly affected by a brain injury.  They cope not only with the immediate injury and treatment, but also the long term impact.

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.
