Brain injury claims
At Admiral Law we understand that a traumatic head (brain) injury can have a devastating impact on your quality of life, as well as that of your loved ones. Our team of solicitors have assisted many clients through their rehabilitation and recovery following a brain injury and in the process, recovered millions of pounds of compensation.
We work with many of the leading names in brain injury litigation and rehabilitation. This enables us to assemble the right team of barristers, professional deputies, medical experts, case managers and therapists for our clients to offer the best chance of regaining what the accident has potentially taken away.
No two brain injury claims are the same and neither are our clients. We adopt a holistic approach to conducting brain injury litigation putting our clients at the centre of the process. This includes obtaining interim payments from the negligent party to fund case management led rehabilitation, accommodation issues, aids and equipment and to compensate for any ongoing expenses or loss of earnings.
However, our involvement does not end at the conclusion of the claim. We assist our clients in locating the right providers to set up personal injury trusts and to offer financial advice on managing their settlements. We also provide assistance with Court of Protection issues for those clients who are unable to manage their finances or lack the ability to conduct the claim themselves. The work that we put in during the life of your claim could continue for many years after the compensation has been received. Problems arising from traumatic brain injuries can last for life, therefore so must the compensation.
How to make a claim
If you have been involved in an accident that is not your fault and have suffered injuries as a result please contact us as soon as possible. Claims for personal injury arising out of accidents which take place in England and Wales are subject to a three year limitation period. We can arrange a convenient time for one of our skilled and experienced team members to contact you. We aim to make your claim for personal injury as straightforward and stress free as possible. We will always explain the steps involved in pursuing a claim for compensation.

How will my claim be funded?
You may have legal expenses insurance attached to your car or home insurance policy. We can make enquiries to see if any such legal expense insurance exists and can be used to fund your claim. If you do not have existing legal expenses insurance we can enter into a Conditional Fee Agreement (a no win no fee agreement) and a bespoke policy of after the event legal expenses insurance. Under the terms of a no win no fee agreement, you may be charged a success fee.
How long will my claim take?
We aim to conclude your claim as soon as is possible. The length of time this takes depends very much on the severity of the injury and the duration of your recovery and importantly the willingness of the defendant to accept fault.
It is important that we ensure that you are recovered completely or have a final prognosis for your future in order to calculate any resulting losses before attempting to settle your claim.
How much compensation will I receive?
The consequences of the injuries or illnesses will vary between individuals. The amount of compensation you could receive will be personal to you and depend upon a number of factors such as the severity of the injury, extent of any continuing symptoms and the level of impact on ability to work.
Our personal injury solicitors are experienced in accurately valuing claims to ensure you get the compensation you deserve.
