What to look for in your brain injury solicitor?

Not every solicitor is qualified to handle a brain injury compensation claim.  These are complex and often challenging claims, which need to be handled by a specialist brain injury lawyer with proven experience in helping brain injury victims.

What is a brain injury solicitor?

A brain injury solicitor is not only a skilled lawyer, but also someone who fully understands the medical aspects of a brain injury and the available therapies.  They should put your rehabilitation at the heart of your claim.

Rehabilitation Code and Brain Injury Case Managers

It is important that a brain injury solicitor uses the Rehabilitation Code to identify their client’s needs and appoint an expert brain injury Case Manager.  Their role is to co-ordinate treatment and care, both on the NHS and funded privately by an insurer if necessary.

Interim Payments

Only an active brain injury solicitor will ensure that a brain injury claimant gets full and proper support funded by an insurer.  They also understand the need to make provision for future costs, which is why they secure interim payments to help through difficult times.

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.
