Brain injuries can have a devastating impact on an individual’s quality of life affecting mobility, psychological wellbeing, employment, finance and loved ones. You may require treatment and rehabilitation, care and assistance with simple everyday tasks, modifications to your home and financial support should you be unable to work.
Our experienced team of Clinical Negligence solicitors have a wide variety of experience in claims whereby medical negligence has resulted in a brain injury. We have experience of the following cases involving brain injuries:
- Lack of oxygen to a baby during childbirth resulting in cerebral palsy
- Failure to prevent a fall resulting in brain damage
- Incorrect administration of medication causing drug overdose
- Incorrect administration of anaesthesia resulting in inadequate supply of oxygen and cardiac arrest
- Infections such as encephalitis causing the brain to swell and delays in the diagnosis of meningitis
If you or someone close to you has been affected by the above, you may be entitled to compensation for pain and suffering, loss of mobility, cost of treatment and rehabilitation, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, loss of income, cost of care and assistance, cost of adaptations to your home and other miscellaneous expenses.
It is therefore very important that you instruct Solicitors with the relevant expertise in brain injury claims so you can obtain all the compensation you are entitled to. Cases in respect of brain injury can take a long time to conclude; once liability has been admitted we may be able to secure early payments as the case progresses to help pay for things that are needed due to the injuries sustained.
We have access to leading medical experts who can assess your case, and with their help we will investigate what mistakes were made and how they could have been avoided. Please contact a member of our team today for an initial no cost, no obligation assessment of your case.
