Our brain injury experts

Head Injury Solicitor 2017

We understand from many years of experience the life changing impact a brain injury can have on you and your family members. While the physical problems themselves are extremely difficult to deal with it can also put a strain on your work, quality of life and relationships.

Our brain injury experts, Fred Tyler, David McIntosh and Ann Logan, can help you with your brain injury claim and hopefully relieve the financial burden required to make the necessary changes in your life. They treat each case individually and are able to identify the issues that need to be addressed for a case to succeed in court.

Our unique and dedicated client Welfare team Jo Downie and Fiona Shand are also able to assist in identifying care packages, benefits and practical adaptations for those who have suffered a brain injury. We have a specialist team who can advise on appointing a Guardian to safeguard the injured person’s welfare and financial interests. We also have specialist solicitors who will help with setting up and running a Personal Injuries Trust for financial peace of mind if compensation is awarded.

Results

Below are just some of the cases that we recently settled on behalf of clients:

Catastrophic road traffic accidents leading to brain damage

We won a substantial seven figure sum of damages for an overseas client who had been involved in a fatal road traffic accident and was left brain damaged which led to cognitive and psychological difficulties as well as associated physical difficulties and the inability to work and the need for extensive requirement for care.

We recently settled a case for a seven figure sum involving a pedestrian who was knocked over while crossing the road. Unfortunately the severity of his injuries meant that he requires 24 hour care. Obtaining compensation meant that he had sufficient funding to allow him to remain at the specialist unit of the care home where he was placed and to pay for specialist therapists to treat him for the rest of his expected lifespan. This security was very important to his family. 

Christopher Brown on behalf of his son Thomas Brown

Thomas suffered a catastrophic brain injury aged 10 when during a school art class a paintbrush punctured his eye and brain. During the art class, Thomas and his classmates were kneeling on the floor painting when he was knocked by a little girl as she stood up. This caused him to topple on to a paintbrush being held by a child next to him thus sustaining the injury.

As a result of that tragic day Thomas is unable to live independently and is reliant upon his parents for support. Because of the level of disability his father Christopher has been appointed as his Guardian.

The team was involved in preparing a difficult case with liability in dispute; a huge amount of investigation was undertaken followed by instructing experts. The team successfully ensured the Brown family received substantial damages.
