Head & Brain Injury

Head injuries are like no other. They have a shattering impact on the victims and often lead to long-term complications, not only for those involved but their families.

Barr Ellison offers a wealth of experience in representing clients with head injuries. We understand and implement the all important rehabilitation before assessing the compensation elements and how best to preserve your compensation for the long term.

Our priority in the early stage of any claim is to focus on the rehabilitation and good supportive case management for those in need. We will build up a team for you to provide support workers, therapists, accommodation advisers and other experts depending on your needs. We also are aware of the need for ongoing support as there can be long-term problems which are not of a medical nature but are concerned with the adjustment of individuals and families to the realities of life after a head injury. Your financial stability is also important and we obtain interim payments during the progression of the claim.

“Thank you for all your hard work on our case. We are very pleased with the way you managed the whole thing and a big thank you on behalf of Stella in terms of the great care she received following this dreadful accident. She would not have recovered so quickly if it wasn’t for you.”
Maksymilian Bielanowski (Family for Stella Mialik)
