Head/Brain Injury Solicitors in Scotland

Our expert personal injury lawyers know this and we are used to looking after injured people and their families who have to go through great difficulties  in adjusting and coping.

We will arrange to have your injuries assessed by appropriate medical consultants including brain surgeons (neurologists and neurosurgeons) and neuropsycholgists. We will identify exactly how you have been damaged and affected and we will establish what needs to be done medically to assist you and your family in your recovery and care.

We will have you seen and assessed in your own house, or at hospital, to establish your care needs. We will ensure that that care is provided  to you and will source this for you, over and above NHS treatment, privately. We will ensure that the injured person gets the sort of physical and psychological medical care they need.

To do this, we will seek early and substantial interim payment awards from the court to help fund that care  and medical treatment privately and we will seek to recover the cost of that treatment as part of your claim.

Any settlement of your claim will ensure that  the cost of any treatment, support and care needed in future is fully funded and paid for.

Case Study:
In one of our recent brain injury case successes, the Pursuer was pursuing compensation for a car accident injury. The Pursuer, who was in the rear seat, sustained brain injury and epilepsy after the vehicle crashed into a bridge. It was a lengthy case; the court action took four years to resolve with highly contentious litigation. The case was resolved by our road traffic accident solicitors in 2013, with a weighty pay out for our client.
