A serious head or brain injury can leave a victim with a range of symptoms, depending on the severity of the trauma and the parts of the brain affected – Head and Brain Injury Solicitor Newry
The effects can be physical, emotional, sensory or cognitive, but regardless of the type of head injury suffered the immediate priority should be securing the highest standard of medical care and rehabilitation.
An estimated 150,000 people suffer a brain injury in the UK every year, with many of those being so seriously injured that they are unable to ever work again. In these circumstances it is essential that the costs of future care are taken into account when negotiating a compensation claim.
Our highly-skilled lawyers have many years’ experience in dealing with complex and high value cases arising from head and brain injuries, and have earned a reputation for providing clients with the very best level of service.
That reputation is built on our understanding of our clients’ needs. Our specialist lawyers understand that the majority of patients suffering a head or brain injury require extensive rehabilitation treatment. They know that rehabilitation will help the victim of a brain injury to attain the highest level of independent functioning that they can, and they understand that the greatest amount of visible progress occurs in the first six months of rehabilitation and that progress can continue for many years.
Because the brain is very complex, every brain injury is different and so is the recovery. Our expert lawyers know this, which is why the specialists at Donnelly Neary & Donnelly provide a caring service which treats you as an individual and offers all the help, advice and support you will need to make your claim.
While rehabilitation can help a person with a brain injury to regain former skills and obtain the highest level of independent functioning, it alone cannot guarantee future quality of life. Compensation is often a lifeline for head or brain injury victims and their families.
Our specialists offer a free, no obligation initial consultation where we will discuss the circumstances of your case with you. We will tell you if we believe you could pursue a claim and clearly explain your options to you, enabling you to make an informed choice that best suits you and your needs.
Most clients choose our No Win No Fee scheme because it provides a risk-free way to pursue compensation. If your claim is successful, you will receive 100 per cent of the damages and the defendant’s insurance company will pay our costs.
Some clients might already have cover to pay for the case, although they may not be aware of it. Many household and car insurance policies actually provide cover to pay for a case such as this, while members of trade unions might also have a similar funding policy.
Our team of experts will closely examine your existing policies and advise you on the best way to fund the claim, helping you make the right choice and ensuring you have complete peace of mind.
A serious head or brain injury can be a horrifying ordeal for the individual involved and their loved ones. Our friendly, helpful specialists are on hand to offer you all the information and advice you might need, and to guide you through the process of making a claim for compensation.
