Brain Injuries: Why claiming is important
This video will discuss why it is important to claim compensation after sustaining a head or brain injury from an accident that wasn’t your fault. In the case of head or brain injuries, it is vital for the injured party to appoint a solicitor and seek compensation for injuries.
In head and brain injury cases, medical expenses can be very costly, but these can be eased or removed, if you seek compensation.
Gordon: Hello, I’m Gordon Cartwright, a partner in JMW’s personal injury team, specialising in head and brain injuries. This video will discuss why it’s important to claim compensation after sustaining a head or brain injury from an accident that wasn’t your fault. In the case of head or brain injuries, I think it is vital for the injured party to appoint a solicitor and seek compensation for injuries. In head and brain injury cases medical expenses can be very costly, but these can be eased or removed if you seek compensation.
Gordon: As your solicitor I can make a case to thedefendants to release interim funding for medical expenses and ultimately secure a compensation package that will help with any on-going care costs for life. There are many costs that can be incurred as a result of a head or brain injury such as loss of earnings or replacement of damaged items that the money simply isn’t in the bank to pay for. A solicitor can help you seek a compensation package that can help you to fund these matters and provide adequate financial stability during the recovery process and beyond.
Gordon: I work on the basis of a ‘no win no fee’ agreement, and in the event that you lose your case you would not stand to lose out financially. Additionally, I will never ask you for any up-front payments so you needn’t worry about a solicitor being an additional financial outlay at any point in the legal process. My main role as your solicitor will be to secure the maximum compensation for you after an accident that wasn’t your fault. However, when you engage me you are also gaining a support network of individuals I have access to.
Gordon: Head and brain injuries can have a massive affect on the injured party and the lives of those around them, and as your solicitor I can help with the adjustments and support that may be needed. This can be anything from engaging a case worker, to giving close support to the injured party and family, to looking at potential counselling and rehabilitation opportunities. I will also fight for the best treatment for my clients, but this starts with them making a choice to engage me to seek compensation.
Gordon: As ever if you have any queries about head or brain injuries and the surrounding legal process, please don’t hesitate to get in contact with us through the website or on 0800 054 6078 where my colleagues will do our best to answer them. Thanks for watching.
