Have you suffered a Head Injury in a Fall?

Otatistically, over 100,000 people in the UK are admitted to hospital every year with someStatisticallyStatisticallyOver Over 100,000 people in the UK are admitted to hospital every year with some form of head injury.  Whilst a lot of those admissions are thankfully only for minor head injury, many involve serious brain injury.  Falls are one of the leading causes of serious head injury and the elderly are particularly prone to suffering serious head injury in a fall.

How do you prevent common causes of head injury?

Older people living on their own or in nursing homes are prone to suffering serious head injury in a fall.  Whilst many falls are simply accidents for which no one is to blame, a large number are preventable and arise from substandard, negligent care.  With a few simple steps however, the chances of an elderly person slipping, tripping and falling can be reduced.  For example, ensuring that there is adequate lighting in the home generally and particularly on walkways.  Moving furniture or other obstacles out of walking pathways and, of course, should elderly people need assistance with mobility or daily activities then they must be provided with adequate care.

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.
