Head and brain injuries are two of the most serious – yet common – injuries that take place. They include injury to the scalp, skull or brain and usually occur due to the negligence of another person’s actions.
If you’ve experienced a head injury, our team of qualified legal solicitors are able to assess the quality of your claim and help you to achieve the brain injury compensation that you deserve.
We are proud offer a no win, no fee agreement on all claims, which means that there is no financial risk to you. Our service also allows you to be clear on the fees you’ll be charged if the claim is successful.
No matter how big or small your head injury claim is, any type of trauma can cause a strain on you and your family.
Depending on the severity of the accident, head injuries can vary from a minor concussion which may only last for a few hours, to long term brain damage which can have a life-changing effect.
However, our expert team of qualified solicitors are here to help recover your brain injury compensation, which can ease the stress that you may be experiencing as a result of the accident.
Here at 1Solicitors, we work with many different types of brain injury claims and can help you to get the compensation you deserve with our dedicated 24/7 client care team.
All trauma that happens to the head or brain is placed into one of two categories:
A closed head injury is where the skull has undergone trauma but has not necessarily been fractured. Accidents such as car crashes often result in closed head injury claims, along with cycling injuries or accidents in the workplace.
Whilst this is the most common of the two head injuries and there may not always be a visible wound, injuries can be extremely dangerous and result in bleeding in and around the brain, as well as concussion.
An open head injury is when the skull has been fractured or displaced as a result of the accident. This happens when an object which has used force or pressure has hit the head, resulting in damage to the brain tissue.
Such injuries are not limited to just a blow on the head but can also include weapons. However, an injury under this category may not always result in a successful head injury claim.
Here at 1Solicitors, we pride ourselves in dealing with every matter on a case-by-case basis. This allows us to tailor the legal advice to the individual’s needs and circumstances.
We know that no two claims are ever the same and each person’s symptoms may also vary, which is why we have a dedicated team of head injury solicitors that can predict the outcome and feasibility of your head injury claim.
If you know someone that has suffered from a head and brain injury but is not able to manage their own claim, we would recommend a close and trusted friend or family member to act on their behalf as a litigation friend. This would mean placing yourself in the shoes of the injured person and acting in their best interests to communicate with us on their behalf.
While we understand that the payment of head and brain injury compensation may never get you back to your pre-accident lifestyle, we hope that it would help you to live an easier life with a view of being able to enjoy certain aspects of life that you’d hoped for.
Your brain injury compensation could cover the cost of treating your injury, along with adapting or purchasing new equipment that you require after the accident has taken place.
Compensation may also be allowed for lost earnings as a result of being unable to attend work, or receiving access to special care that is not currently available on the NHS.
Although claiming for personal injury compensation can be seen as a complex procedure, the team at No.1 Solicitors ensure you are listened to and are on hand 24/7 to provide you with their sympathetic yet professional and efficient advice as well as options.
