We combine expert knowledge of medical treatment issues with expertise in brain injury. We have the experience and understanding to deal with these highly complex cases.
We have particular expertise in cases of brain injury resulting from negligent surgery, failure to diagnose and treat medical conditions, failure to obtain informed consent, and accidents with anaesthesia.
We fully appreciate that the demands of those with brain injury differ from those who are less severely injured. Our lawyers handle smaller caseloads than the majority of clinical negligence lawyers, thus promoting a proactive and highly- focused approach.
In cases where liability is established, a claim for compensation can be advanced and significant levels of damages may be recovered. Where liability is unlikely to be strongly contested, we are pro-active and obtain interim payments for accommodation, equipment and the setting up of care regimes.
When the case is won, we will also advise on the setting up of trusts to protect means tested benefits and on the investment of damages through our links with specialist financial advisors. We provide advice on Court of Protection issues for clients who lack capacity to manage their financial affairs.
It is essential, in our view, that every person who has suffered a brain injury as a result of negligent medical treatment should seek advice as to whether a claim for compensation can be made. Very often people fail to seek proper advice on the assumption that no claim for medical negligence exists. We are prepared to look at the details of any case and provide expert advice as to whether a claim for compensation can be brought.
If you or a family member have suffered a brain injury as a result of medical negligence or feel that you are not getting the specialist advice you require on an ongoing case, please contact us.
