Legal Advice On Compensation

How We can help with

Legal Advice on Compensation

Sometimes injuries can occur as a result of an accident, negligence or criminal act, our legal members are all experienced in providing advice on whether a claim for financial compensation could be made.

Accessing early specialist legal advice on a wide range of legal, financial and practical matters can ensure continuous rehabilitation, treatment and care following discharge from hospital and throughout your brain injury claim and help to improve your outcome by maximising recovery and independence.

A solicitor with the right brain injury experience will be able to build a case for the level of compensation you need to support you in the years ahead and your long term future security, rather than just agreeing a short-term settlement that will not be sufficient for your ongoing needs.

You should bring your claim as soon as possible following your accident. This will enable your solicitor to gather all the evidence about your accident and the injuries and losses you have suffered. Generally, brain injury claims should be brought within three years of the accident date, known as the limitation period, but there are exceptions to this rule including injuries sustained during an assault and accidents abroad. If you were younger than 18 when you sustained the injury (16 in Scotland), you have until your 21st birthday to lodge a claim (19th birthday in Scotland) regardless of your age at the time of the injury. If a person lacks mental capacity i.e. cannot make decisions for themselves, there is no limit for bringing a claim, unless capacity is regained, at which point the 3 year limitation period commences.

If your brain injury occurred more than three years ago and you feel it has had a negative impact on your life, it’s probably worth talking to one of our solicitors to see if you could still make a claim.
