The brain is one of the most vital parts of our body so when it receives an injury, the results can be hugely devastating. Brain damage can lead to physical consequences or psychological problems, or often both. Sometimes the changes it brings about are relatively minor, often subtle, sometimes monumental. And because it’s such a complicated organ, the law too is fairly complex when it comes to dealing with head injuries. As well as first class expert legal knowledge, your lawyer or solicitor should also be fully versed in understanding the needs of people, and the families of people, with Acquired Brian Injury (ABI).
Neurological injury due to medical negligence
When any medical procedure goes wrong and you are let down by a medical professional, it can have a huge impact on your life. When that negligence involves neurological treatment, the effects of that mistake can be devastating. Neurological injury includes all injuries of the central nervous system, most commonly the brain or the spine. Neurological treatment requires medical professionals to be extremely skilled as surgery and treatment is often very intricate and complex. However, mistakes do happen and are often life changing in their severity. Types of neurological injuries include:
- Brain injury due to lack of oxygen to the brain
- Stroke/blood clot to brain or elsewhere
- Failure to diagnoses infection, such as meningitis
- Spinal cord injury (for example, following surgery)
- Paralysis or lack of function
All of these injuries can result in life-altering consequences. You and your family’s requirements and needs may change and it can turn your world upside down. You may need assistance equipment, treatment, nursing care, and accommodation, in addition to general financial support. You need a legal team that not only has the medical knowledge and legal experience to win your case but also understands those requirements and needs. From the outset of the company over 25 years ago, we’ve made Serious Personal Injury one of our cornerstones so there are very few lawyers and solicitors out there who have amassed the same level of experience and expertise as us in the field of Acquired Brain Injury. In fact, ours is an award-winning team whose chief goal isn’t just to bring you the best financial compensation from your claim (although our team has personally recovered over £98 million for our seriously injured customers in the last 3 years alone). Our team always works on a no win-no fee basis, but for us that isn’t what we’re about. We’re about making sure that you are looked after, that you get the care and assistance you need, that you get the right kind of rehabilitation and that someone is always looking out for you in the long run. Our whole ethos centres on ensuring that all our customers and their families, receive the very best help and assistance available, in order to live the best and most comfortable life possible. Compensation is an important part of that, but so to is providing the right types of experts, the right types of financial advice and support, and being there when it matters most. Often, that support continues long after the claim has settled. That’s something we are really proud of.
