Not all brain injuries are life threatening or in the long term, life changing. Nevertheless, as the name suggests, even a mild traumatic brain injury is likely to give cause for concern to the victim and their family, in the days and even weeks following the accident that was the cause of it.
At the other end of the scale, severe traumatic brain injuries can be life changing, not only for the individual who has sustained the injury, but for their whole family. Lives are turned upside down in an instant. The person suffering from the severe brain injury is likely to require ongoing brain injury rehabilitation for many years, or even a lifetime. The cost of the level of rehabilitation required, can be often be very high indeed. The victim’s home may need adapting and a fulltime carer required. Sometimes a family member may fulfil the role at the expense of their own career.
At Spencers Solicitors, we have a dedicated serious injury claims team which includes amongst its number, some of the best brain injury compensation solicitors in the country. To be rated as being among the best of brain injury claim solicitors, does not only mean having the skill to recover the maximum amount of brain injury compensation for the brain injury, itself (although that is of itself vitally important).
It also means that we are able to obtain substantial interim payments throughout the life of the claim, to ensure that the best rehabilitation facilities are made available to our client, the best treatment and the best care. We ensure that the cost of providing these facilities is part of the claim for compensation too. We will also recover not only our clients lost earnings, but also his/her future loss of earnings.
We work together with other experts to ensure that everything is put in place to make our clients life now and in the future, as comfortable as possible. It is part of our job to ensure that we recover all the costs required to enable this to happen, from the insurance company of the person who caused the accident. We leave no stone unturned to make sure that although our client’s quality of life might have been hugely diminished, they will have all the facilities and support that they need for as long as it required.

In most brain injury claims we will arrange home visits to allow our solicitors to fully understand the circumstances of the injury in the most convenient setting for the injured person.
We'll work with medical professionals to meticulously define the status of the brain injury and what the long term prognosis will be. Arranging a rehabilitation and immediate needs assessment will be one of the first things we do. From here we will establish any immediate and ongoing medical needs and create a comprehensive claim that covers compensation for pain and suffering as well as the cost of all current and future treatment and care.
We don't see recovering compensation for the injured person important as that aspect of our work is, as being the sole purpose of someone instructing us to act on their behalf in relation to their brain injury claim. In addition:
Any recovery from a brain injury can be a long process, but we will be there to help all the way. We'll be proactive and we'll help reach a legal conclusion as quickly as possible. And we can handle the claim under a no win no fee arrangement.
