No claim of acquired brain injury whether categorised as mild, moderate or severe should be handled without the assistance of a legal team that is knowledgeable regarding the issues presented by these cases. Every brain injury case is different and we tailor our service to each client’s needs. Ultimately, proper preparation and evaluation of information leads to better results.
Robert G. Sinclair Solicitors are committed to helping people with brain injuries in the community. There are very few Solicitors who have gained the same level of experience and expertise as our firm in the field of Acquired Brain Injury. Our goal is to bring people with brain injury the best financial compensation from their claim. We want to ensure that people with brain injury are looked after and that they get the care and assistance they need and that they get the right kind of rehabilitation. Care needs are frequently very significant and it is the substantial cost of future care that often leads our clients to pursue a brain and head injury claim. We will be encouraging insurers to meet these care and rehabilitation needs at the earliest possible opportunity and to fund treatment where appropriate.
The effects of brain injury can be devastating, both for the injured person and their family. Symptoms of Acquired Brain Injury can be mild, moderate or severe depending on the extent of the damage to the brain. Some symptoms are evident immediately while others do not surface for several days or weeks after the injury. The symptoms of Acquired Brain Injury can separated into three categories (i) physical symptoms (ii) cognitive deficits- effects on brain function and (iii) behavioural changes.
We prepare vigorously for brain injury claim and believe it is vitally important to assemble the right medico-legal team. There may be neurologists, neuropsychologists, physiotherapists, neuropsychiatrists, audiologists, cognitive therapists, nursing care consultants, occupational therapists, ophthalmologists, speech therapists and the GP. All of the people who have treated the plaintiff will all be offering an opinion. We are familiar with working with all of the experts and making provision for purchasing aids and appliances and assistive technology. We can assist clients with matters such as purchasing and adaptation of suitable accommodation and assessing wheelchair and transport needs.
We hope to help people to maximise their independence and lead as normal a life as possible.
