Head and Brain Injury Claims

A serious head or brain injury can leave a victim with a range of symptoms, depending on the severity of the trauma and the parts of the brain affected. The effects can be physical, emotional, sensory or cognitive, but regardless of the type of head injury suffered the immediate priority should be securing the highest standard of medical care and rehabilitation.

An estimated 150,000 people suffer a brain injury in the UK every year, with many of those being so seriously injured that they are unable to ever work again. In these circumstances it is essential that the costs of future care are taken into account when negotiating head injury claims.

Fentons Solicitors has a nationally-recognised personal injury department specialising in severe brain and head injuries. Our highly-skilled head injury lawyers have many years' experience in dealing with complex and high value cases arising from head and brain injuries, and have earned a reputation for providing clients with the very best level of service.

Our reputation is built on a commitment to client care and an understanding of our clients’ needs.

Our specialist lawyers understand that:

  • The majority of people sustaining a head or brain injury require extensive rehabilitation treatment
  • Early rehabilitation will help a person with a brain injury to attain the highest level of independence that they can
  • The greatest amount of visible progress occurs in the first six months of rehabilitation and that progress can continue for many years.

Because the brain is very complex, every brain injury is different and so is the recovery. Our expert personal injury lawyers know this, which is why the head injury specialists at Fentons provide a caring service which treats you as an individual and offers all the help, advice and support you will need to make your claim.

While rehabilitation can help a person with a brain injury to regain former skills and obtain the highest level of independent functioning, it alone cannot guarantee future quality of life. Compensation is often a lifeline for head or brain injury victims and their families.

Our serious injury specialists offer a free, no obligation initial consultation where we will discuss the circumstances of your case with you. We will tell you if we believe you could pursue a personal injury compensation claim and clearly explain your options to you, enabling you to make an informed choice that best suits you and your needs.

Most clients choose our No Win No Fee scheme because it provides a risk-free way to pursue compensation. Our friendly, helpful personal injury specialists are on hand to offer you all the information and advice you might need, and to guide you through the process of making a claim for compensation.
