Headway: The Brain Injury Association

No one expects that either they, or a loved one, will ever suffer a serious brain injury or head injury.  However should it happen, after the initial focus of surviving the immediate trauma and surgery, the patient then concentrates on rehabilitation and on making their best recovery, as soon as possible. 

Life-Changing Help

Even with excellent medical treatment, the experience of a brain injury is a traumatic and often life-changing event, whether the victim is fortunate enough to make a good recovery or is left with significant symptoms.  Fortunately extra help is at hand.  The Headway charity helps head injury victims and their families cope with the head injury. Their national network of branches offer a wide range of services including rehabilitation programmes, carer support, social re-integration, community outreach and respite care - www.headway.org.uk.

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.
