"Our team will support you as you regain
the social skills that might have been lost"
The UK charity BRAKE, has the twin aims of preventing road crashes and supporting the road accident victims, founded Road Safety Week back in 1997. Since then Road Safety Week has become an annual event which helps raise awareness of the extent of death and injury on our roads, and the steps that all of us can take to prevent these avoidable deaths and injuries all year-round.
As BRAKE says, your involvement could be as simple as making a personal promise to drive more slowly, telling a friend about it or ordering a free Road Safety Week poster to put on a notice board. Or if you want to get more involved, you could help run a community road safety campaign or road safety workshops in a school or workplace.
Road traffic accidents are a leading cause of traumatic brain injuries and fatal accidents in this country. The tragedy is that many of them are avoidable. At Head Injury UK our brain injury solicitors support the aims of BRAKE and its Road Safety Week. We hope that it inspires all of us to promote road safety to those around us during the Week and throughout the year. If you have suffered a brain injury or lost a loved one in a road accident, then please contact Andy Shaw or call us on 0800 073 0988, to see how we can help you.
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.
