The Dudley Trail
Head Injury UK put their best feet forward to raise awareness and money for the charity Headway – the Brain Injury Association. Members and supporters of the Head Injury UK team walked The Dudley Trail on 6 May 2012. An annual event, this challenging walk in the heart of the ‘Black Country’ takes participants on a 6 mile tour of countryside, canals and streets around the Dudley Borough. The Dudley Trail walk coincided with the re-launch of our website, www.HeadInjuryUK.com, which supports those who have an acquired brain injury or had a serious accident.
Head Injuries need Specialists
According to Headway, each year an estimated 1 million people attend A&E in the UK following head injury and it is estimated that across the country around 500,000 people aged 16 - 74 are living with long term disabilities as a result of traumatic brain injury. Road accidents, accidents at work and birth injuries all contribute to the number of head injuries each year. Clare Langford, a Solicitor at Head Injury UK, commented: “It is crucial that these cases are handled by a specialist, to ensure that the best care and rehabilitation is offered from the outset.”

Clare also said, “Having handled many cases over the years, we decided to highlight our dedicated, specialist service for head injury sufferers, making it easier for them to make a claim and also give them the confidence that their case is being handled by one of the country’s foremost personal injury law firms. “Some of our lawyers have first hand personal experience of how it feels to be devastated by accident and injury, so this is an issue that is close to our hearts. We would encourage anyone injured, especially when seriously, in an accident to make a claim for the compensation to which they are entitled.” For more information on Head Injury UK and what the team could do for you, please contact Clare Langford.
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.
