Specialist Brain Injury Solicitors
Helping seriously injured clients and their families
rebuild their lives
If you or a loved one has suffered a brain injury, it is likely that you have many important questions that need to be addressed. On this page, we address some common questions about brain injury claims. If you have a question that is not answered here, please do not hesitate to contact us and we will answer it for you.
If you would like to find out more information about brain injuries, see our helpful brain injury resources here where you can discover more about the brain as well as the types and effects of brain injury.
In most cases, the time limit for starting Court proceedings for a brain injury claim is three years from the date of the injury. This is known as the 'limitation date'.
However, to find out about the precise limitation period in the case you are concerned with, professional legal advice should be sought from a firm of solicitors with extensive experience in serious personal injury claims. Sometimes the limitation period can be more or less than 3 years.
Brain injury claims can be complex. The length of time it takes to settle a brain injury case can vary depending on many different factors.
For example, a traumatic brain injury (TBI) could be minor, moderate or severe. Therefore, the implications of a brain injury can vary depending on the level of severity.
It can be challenging to identify the long-term effects that a brain injury may present. Therefore, your solicitor will need various medical reports to help determine the future impact that your injury may have.
This will help clarify the full implications of your injuries to ensure you receive the right amount of compensation and have the right support and rehabilitation in place.
Due to their complexity, it is likely that TBI cases will take longer to resolve than other types of injury cases, as a wide range of evidence is usually required. There may also be a wider range of opinions to assess in respect of the possibility of future improvements and recovery.
However, whilst your claim is ongoing you may be able to secure interim payments that can help in the short term, for example this may be to cover rehabilitation costs or loss of earnings if you are unable to work.
Our duty as specialist brain injury solicitors is to maximise your compensation award and put in place the necessary support to maximise your independence and security.
This may include housing adapted to meet your needs, a care team, ranging from support with specific tasks through to a 24/7 support package, access to all the right aids, equipment, accessible transport and rehabilitation.
Our team here at Serious Law will ensure you have access to the best treatment and assistance, alongside long-term support from our specialist team.
