Choosing a Solicitor for a Brain Injury Compensation Claim

If you are reading this it is likely that you, or a loved one has suffered a brain injury.  This might be a traumatic brain injury (tbi), caused in a road traffic or workplace accident, or as a result of clinical negligence – for example failure to treat a stroke, or anaesthetic error.

“Realising Realistic Medicine” The Reports of Scotland’s Chief Medical Officer are welcome news for doctors and patients
