What you need to know about raising a compensation claim for a catastrophic injury
Serious, catastrophic or life changing injuries is a very specialist area of law so it is important that your solicitor has specific experience in this field. At BHP Law, we have the level of advice and experience that you will need.
You may be able to seek compensation in a range of circumstances. We have dealt with serious and catastrophic injuries for clients in a variety of circumstances, including Criminal Injuries Compensation Awards, Road traffic accidents, Medical negligence and even Accidents at Work. We recommend that you speak to one of our specialist advisors, on a no obligation basis, if you are unsure if you have a claim as there are strict time limits for bringing a claim.
Our commitment to serve you
At BHP Law we have a team of lawyers based regionally within the North East of England that have specialised in dealing with personal injury claims relating to serious injuries in excess of 25 years.
If you decide to instruct us, we will always:
- Simplify the legal jargon and discuss all the steps of your claim with you before we act.
- Help you to gather all the evidence that is needed to bring your claim and help you to assess the full extent of your injuries by referring you to specialist medical experts, also aiding in sourcing any additional services you may need during your rehabilitation.
- We will give you regular updates on your case, the strength of the evidence and how the claim is progressing.
- We offer regular home or hospital visits, or we can update you via phone or email to suit you.
- We will also give you important information and guidance on what benefits you may be entitled to from the DWP, the services your Local Authority may have in place to assist you and which disabled support groups work in your area.
As solicitors that regularly deal with clients suffering from life changing injuries, we know that legal advice is only one side of the problem; as a client of ours you will also receive lifestyle and financial advice.
