Head & Brain Injuries

BHP Law has a team of specialist personal injury solicitors and advisers with a wide range of experience in dealing with traumatic head injury claims and brain injury compensation. It is possible that brain injuries can be caused in many ways, including Accidents at Work, Road Traffic Accidents, or Attack or Assaults.

Brain injuries can also be caused by medical negligence.

The only way to find out if you have a head injury / brain injury claim is to ask.

Even if you think there is no possible claim, we are happy to talk it through with you to see if we can help. Asking will cost you nothing. Many successful head injury claims have started from unpromising beginnings, but we will not waste your time and add to the pressures upon you if we believe there is no prospect of pursuing a successful case.

Brain injuries affect people in many ways; they mainly affect people cognitively resulting in memory loss and/or poor concentration through to permanent brain damage that can also manifest in physical disabilities such as diffiulty with speech, movement and motor function.

Each case needs to be considered on its own merit as the needs of each client and the context of each injury varies. You therefore need a solicitor who can work closely with you and your family, and where necessary is able to carry out home and hospital visits. We will take you through this process in a way that suits you, so you can fully understand if you have a claim, and where you do have a claim take you through your next available steps with no obligation advice.
