Compensation for Serious Injuries
We are dedicated to helping those people who have sustained a serious injury; an injury that has life changing consequences, for them and those closest. We dedicate our skills to supporting those who require our time and attention. We work hard to ensure the injured person is able to maximise their physical and mental health recovery, and to receive full monetary compensation for the significant and serious injuries sustained.
Examples of the serious injuries and illness cases where we act for claimants are as follows:
- Brain injury;
- Spinal injury;
- Injuries resulting in death;
- Loss of sight;
- Loss of hearing;
- Child sexual abuse;
- Birth injuries;
- Multiple fractures;
- Cosmetic surgery;
- Late and misdiagnosis of cancer.
The compensation is for the pain and suffering from the injury, plus a variety of financial losses and expenses. Serious injury frequently results in a significant period of absence from work and, sometimes, an inability to return to previous employment. It is therefore not usual for a loss of earnings claim to run into the future, perhaps through to retirement.
A long recovery is likely to involve reliance on others, for care and support. Even where that support has been provided by family members, the law recognises the value of the role performed and places a monetary value on the care. In some instances, professional care services are required, either to supplement family support or meet the majority of the person’s needs. The cost of that professional care can be claimed from those responsible for the injury.
The most serious injuries can limit mobility and adaptions may be necessary so there is full access to the home. Sometimes the home cannot be adapted and it is necessary to purchase alternative single storey accommodation. The cost of the adaptations or alternative accommodation can be claimed from the person responsible for the injuries and their solicitors.
Amputees can benefit from high-quality prosthetics. An amputee can rely on prosthetics from the NHS but is entitled to claim the reasonable costs of prosthetics available in the private sector, which frequently offer a range of products, to provide for daily and specific leisure activities.
Aids and equipment can substantially improve the quality of life and independence. Evidence from relevant experts can be obtained to identify those aids. Assistive technology also has a major role to play in improving the quality of life after serious injury.
