Choosing the right legal adviser
A brain injury can change a person’s life significantly – and that of their family. Many injuries are unfortunately the responsibility of a third party, in which case there may be the potential to make a claim for compensation. A successful claim could go a long way towards supporting a rehabilitation programme, or providing long term care, or simply easing the financial burden caused by changed circumstances.
If you think you have a claim, speak to several lawyers and ask lots of questions before you instruct anyone; you need to find someone you can relate to. When you speak to any one of our network members, you can be confident that they have a track record of handling brain injury cases and appreciate all the complexities.
