At Pictons LLP, our clinical negligence solicitors specialise in complex brain injury claims, and possess great experience and sensitivity in working with children and adults with this condition.
We have a clear understanding of the complex medical and legal issues associated with claims of this nature. We also understand the enormous day-to-day difficulties that victims of brain injury have to endure.
A head injury usually refers to an injury to the bony structure whereas a brain injury is an injury to the brain itself. Brain injury can arise in many different ways including from head injuries, strokes, haematomas, aneurysms, brain tumours and meningitis.
It is vital that medical attention is sought as soon as possible and that the appropriate investigations are carried out which may include scans (MRI and/or CT) and blood tests.
Sometimes doctors do not immediately recognise the signs and symptoms of brain injury, and there may be a delay in referring a patient for specialist opinion or tests. A delayed diagnosis of a brain injury can have serious consequences for the patient.
We have developed an extensive network of experts, including barristers, medical practitioners, care experts and case managers, who work closely with our team of brain injury lawyers.
If we can prove negligence, we will work closely with the families of the claimant and other experts to maximise your compensation.
If you have been affected by brain injury, please contact our clinical negligence team at Pictons Solicitors LLP. We will deal sympathetically with your claim and advise you of your rights to claim compensation.
