Brain Injury Holistic Claims Process

Time Limits for making claims

There are strict time limits in place in which to pursue a head injury claim and we would therefore advise you to contact us as soon as possible. In most cases you have 3 years from the date of your injury to bring a claim.

Head injury solicitors

Our Brain Injury Team will:

  • visit you in your own home or hospital to give you and your family prompt and through advice and guidance
  • obtain interim payments to pay for your care and assistance
  • appoint a case manager to organise care regimes for you
  • handle your case expertly throughout the entire process so that you can rest in the knowledge that the requisite expertise and understanding of brain injury claims is applied to your case

Case Example

Cyclist knocked of his bike suffers serious injuries

An adult was knocked down whilst cycling to work and suffered a fractured skull together with associated fractures of the arms and legs. He suffered brain damage and retired on ill health from work. He is unlikely to be able to pursue a career or live independently and will require supervision and assistance on a daily basis. Settlement agreed at £1.5m damages.

Simpson Millar LLP are a specialist Team of Brain Injury Solicitors who have significant experience of dealing with all types of head injury compensation claims. We pride ourselves as a firm on understanding the issues faced by those who have suffered a brain injury as well as their families and carers.

Our aim is to provide a tailor made service for each client. However, in each case we aim to take the pressure off you and your family and deal with the head injury compensation claim as quickly and efficiently as possible.

At Simpson Millar LLP we will help you from the outset of your case to obtain the support you require. We will look at obtaining reports from experts as soon as practically possible in relevant areas such as physiotherapy, occupational therapy, accommodation and transport as well as employment rehabilitation and case workers.

Accessing the right services for the rehabilitation process is vital in a person making a significant recovery.
