Brain Injury Awareness Week

19 May 2021

This week is Brain Injury Awareness Week. Our team is experienced in representing those who have brain injuries and understanding the impact on our client’s lives.

An Acquired Brain Injury is an injury that happens after birth. It can occur via trauma (known as a Traumatic Brain Injury, or TBI), or following a stroke, brain tumour or brain haemorrhage.

Brain Injuries can impact the injured person’s personality, challenging their relationships and sense of who they are. This can be very difficult for those who love them.

Physically, balance or movement can be affected, making it difficult for someone to live as independently as they did before they were injured. There can also be more subtle consequences, such as in difficulties with speech. It can be very hard for a person with speech difficulties to make themselves understood.

Brain injuries can be life changing. Careers can be devastated and the ability to care for other family members taken away. Our team understand the huge consequences that a “minor” brain injury can have, and are able to help you or your loved one navigate the legal process.

Specialist lawyers are essential in making sure that you are fairly compensated for an injury you, or your loved one has suffered. We have experience of all types of brain injury, and in tailoring your claim to your particular circumstances. Our reputation is built on getting to know our clients, and making sure that their compensation award empowers them to rebuild their life through specialist rehabilitation and care.  

If you, or your loved one has suffered a brain injury as a result of an accident, or medical negligence please call our team on 020 7814 1200.
