Each brain injury compensation claim is unique so we’ll carefully review your case details to ensure that we can achieve the best results for you. The six main steps in any claim are:
1. Get in touch
Tell us about your injury and what caused it in your own words. We can then let you know if we think that you have a claim. For a free, no-obligation chat about your or your child’s claim, call us on 020 3740 6647 or use our online form.
2. Funding options
If we think that you or your child have a claim, the next step is to work out the best funding options for you. This could include taking your case on with a “no win, no fee” agreement.
Your solicitor will contact the party likely to be responsible for your claim. They will notify them that a claim is being made and ask them to consider funding your rehabilitation. We will also explore other rehabilitation options to help you at this stage.
4. Obtaining records
We’ll request copies of your (or your child’s) medical records, GP notes and any accident reports to help us to assess the severity of the injury. We also consider its impact on your or your child’s life now. The aim is to understand if anyone’s wrongdoing may have caused or worsened the injury.
5. Expert opinion
If the records support your claim, we’ll ask medical and/or accident reconstruction experts to prepare reports about the case.
6. Letter of claim
Once we have supporting evidence from all experts, we’ll send the individual or organisation responsible a formal “letter of claim”.
