If you need legal advice following a head injury or brain injury, it is important to contact a solicitor with specific expertise and experience in dealing with brain injury claims. The choice that you make will be an important decision. Choosing wrongly could mean that you are represented by an inexperienced solicitor who may not be able to help you get the compensation that you need and deserve, or find the right specialist services that will help in your rehabilitation.
Many solicitors claim to be able to represent clients who have suffered personal injury, but very few firms have an established and proven track record in looking after clients with head injuries, as well as getting the best compensation for them.
Over many years, our expert head injury solicitors have taken on cases for hundreds of clients who have been unhappy with their first choice of solicitor and have come to realise that they would do better with us. We have included some recent examples of clients with head injuries who made that change, and in doing so have taken the first but important step in securing a better outcome for themselves.
What if I am not happy with my current solicitor?
Changing is easier than you may think! Every client has the right to decide for themselves who they want to work for them in their legal action along with their family and/or carers helping them make that decision.
If you think that your solicitor is not up to the job, you can approach us for a second opinion. If we recommend that you would benefit from the assistance of a specialist head injury solicitor, we can arrange to contact your current solicitor and ask them to send us your case file – we then do the rest, as long as we have your written authority to do so. Remember, you decide!
Some things to bear in mind:-
- Good communications are essential – your solicitor should be able to keep you informed without making you feel that you are an inconvenience to them.
- Location is not really that important. What matters is whether your solicitor is a brain injury specialist, not whether they are just down the road. However, we can cover the whole of Great Britain from our network of offices.
- It is important for you to feel confident with your solicitor- we will always be ready to answer your questions to help you through the claims process.
