Our brain injury specialists
About Bolt Burdon Kemp
At Bolt Burdon Kemp we have specialist solicitors with over 30 years’ experience in achieving strong results in complex claims involving adults and children with brain injuries. Our highly empathetic and pro-active brain injury solicitors understand the importance of arranging quick and effective rehabilitation when a client has suffered an injury.
We work hard to provide easy access to some of the best rehabilitation and support services and understand not only the devastation that can be caused to a family when a brain injury occurs, but also the worries and concerns loved ones will inevitably have and we take in to account a family’s needs and wishes when working with them to provide care for their loved one. We take pride in listening to our clients, and are on the client’s side from the first contact in our collective journey. We work tirelessly to ensure you are surrounded by professionals who you can work effectively with.
We are recognised as a leading firm in the field of brain injury by the independent Chambers and Partners and the Legal 500 guides to the legal profession. They have also recognised us for our expertise and focus on rehabilitation for serious brain injury. We have two separate teams dedicated respectively to
- Adult Brain Injury
- Child Brain Injury, including Cerebral Palsy and Birth Injury cases.
Our specialist brain injury claim solicitors are committed to securing access to justice for our clients. No matter what your background or financial situation, if you have an arguable case we will find a way to fund it. We will match your case with the appropriate solicitor from one of our specialist teams so you can be confident of receiving bespoke, high quality legal advice focussed on finding a solution for your problem. We understand that a claim is a very personal experience and that the relationship between lawyer and client is a partnership based on trust. Recovery doesn’t have to wait until a claim has settled and as advocates and champions for our clients, we prioritise early interim payments to fund vital treatment and meet key accommodation needs.
Our Child Brain Injury, lead by Caroline Klage, have developed expertise in representing clients in appeals against Local Authority decisions concerning Education Health and Care Plan provision and funding.
The firm work closely with a number of dedicated brain injury charities, including Headway UK and local branches, The Child Brain Injury Trust, The SIlverlinings, The Encephalitis Society, Cerebra and Contact. Our support for these charities includes funding family support advisers and peer support officers, as well as being included in their legal panels.
