We will be able to tell you very quickly, and free of charge, whether or not we can help you with a head injury claim.
If we agree to investigate your case we will suggest an early face-to-face meeting, so that we can get full details of what has happened.
All sides in a brain injury or serious head injury claim have to abide by the rules of a pre-action protocol, which encourages the parties to settle the claim without ever getting involved in court proceedings.
However, in our experience, insurers are reluctant to settle major claims on sensible financial terms, and it is usually necessary to commence court proceedings for most of our clients.
If court proceedings are needed, we will arrange a meeting with a specialist barrister so that we can all discuss all the evidence in the case carefully before any proceedings begin.
Calculating the right amount of compensation in a head injury claim usually involves gathering evidence from a large number of experts – neuro-surgeons – neuro-psychiatrists – neuro-psychologists – care experts – housing experts – rehabilitation experts – physiotherapists – occupational therapists and so on.
Our team of expert head injury claim lawyers have many years experience . We are in regular contact with the top barristers and medical experts, so that we can achieve the best possible results for our clients.
Court proceedings are necessary in the vast majority of our head injury claims but most cases are settled long before a trial.
When cases do go ahead as a trial the experience of giving evidence is rarely as difficult as people imagine.
We have previously published some very straightforward pointers about giving evidence at court.
