About Brain Injuries
Brain injuries are caused in a number of ways:
- When the head or body is impacted by a severe and violent blow.
- When the skull is penetrated causing the brain tissue underneath to be disturbed.
- When the brain is starved of blood or oxygen
They are often categorised as being mild, moderate or severe depending on the extent of the injuries and whether they are short-term or permanent but they are all serious injuries that require immediate medical attention and that can impact on your life and your livelihood.
Symptoms can include visual disturbances, headaches, seizures, changes in mood, depression, anxiety, sensory problems, vomiting and nausea, drowsiness, loss of co-ordination, memory loss and numbness or loss of feeling while the most severe injuries can cause long-term, lasting damage resulting in permanent physical or mental disability.
We regularly help clients who have sustained a brain injury through:
- Road traffic accidents
- Sports Injuries
- Falling from a significant height
- Accidents at work including in the military
- Physical assault
- Medical negligence
How can Clifford Johnston & Co help?
Sustaining a brain injury is already deeply upsetting for you and your loved ones without the additional worry that the financial implications can bring. You may be facing a loss of earnings, expensive medical costs and just simply don’t know where to turn.
At Clifford Johnston & Co. we understand precisely what you are going through and are here to provide maximum support to help you get your life back on track.
We can guarantee you an exceptional team of legal specialists who have the expertise to secure a financial package and care plan that will meet all of your needs and will be essential for your rehabilitation and recovery.
We will work diligently to secure the maximum amount of compensation for you to cover private healthcare, specialist equipment, adaptations to your home and car and loss of earnings both now and in the future.
Finances are often a big source of concern after an accident or injury, particularly if you need time off work and you might worry about how you will cope. We will make sure that financial support is put in place and that you receive interim payments until your claim is settled in full.
If your injury means that you are no longer able work or that you have to change your role so that your income and earning potential is reduced, we will help you to navigate the benefits system to make sure that you are claiming everything to which you are entitled.
Brain Injury: Personal Injury Trusts
We can advise you on setting up a personal injury trust to protect your compensation award from any means testing that may affect your benefit payments, to prevent it from being used towards care costs and to help you manage such a large sum of money.
We will work to establish any negligent or criminal behaviour that led to your injury by gathering witness statements, examining CCTV footage and accessing your medical records. We want to help you receive justice for what has happened to you and will work tirelessly to achieve the very best results.
Am I eligible to claim Brain Injury Compensation?
If you have suffered a serious injury in the last three years that wasn’t your fault, then you may be eligible for compensation.
The financial award that you ultimately receive will depend on a number of factors including the extent of your injuries, the impact on you or your loved ones, the financial damage caused and how much care you are expected to need over a lifetime.
How do I make a Brain Injury Claim?
Claiming compensation can feel like a daunting and time-consuming process but receiving financial recompense is vital for your recovery. Our personal injury specialists can co-ordinate everything and will advise you throughout to make everything as simple, straightforward and efficient as possible.
From the moment of your first enquiry, we can help and will work with you to gather the details of your accident, the severity of your injuries and how your life is being affected. We can then advise you on your chances of submitting a successful claim, give you an idea of how much compensation you can expect and will talk you through the next steps providing clear and coherent advice at all stages.
We will need information including where and how the injury took place, who else was involved, whether there were any witnesses and the full extent of your injuries. We understand that this may be incredibly difficult and upsetting but we will go at your pace and you will never feel pressured or rushed. Face-to-face appointments can be made with you at home or in the hospital, and we will do our utmost to make you feel as comfortable and relaxed as possible at all times.
