“I would like to express my thanks for the helpful and professional way you pursued this claim. I hope I don’t need your services again, but I would certainly recommend you to anyone else in a similar situation. Thank you once again.” – Mr T
We have been working to get the compensation you deserve for over 30 years and each member of the Team is highly specialised and has years of experience.
Most of our cases are dealt on a “no win, no fee” agreement so there is no financial risk to you.
According to charity Headway, a person is admitted to hospital every 90 seconds suffering from an acquired brain injury. They might have sustained harm during a range of accidents, such as vehicle collisions, falls, and incidents at work – whatever accident they have suffered their quality of life will probably never be the same again.
In instances of catastrophic injury, the individual will possibly require round-the-clock care, which can have a profound impact on family life.
Ensuring compensation for the symptoms of a head injury, as well as for any loss of earnings and medical expenses, is fundamental to any meaningful compensation settlement. Loss of future earnings, a feature in most cases of this nature, will also need to be factored into the final settlement.
Receiving remuneration could help financially support the injured individual and any dependants, allowing them to focus on rehabilitation instead of monetary troubles.
Often the serious nature of brain injuries can cause a financial problem from the moment you have the accident. At Healys Solicitors we understand that you need help from the first moment you call us. We will work hard for you to secure an interim payment to aid in your rehabilitation. Often once the other side have agreed liability this can easily be negotiated.
At Healys Solicitors , our specialist brain injury Lawyers bring their experience and expertise to the fore in this type of litigation, working diligently to ensure that claimants receive the maximum amount of compensation possible.
However, our service extends beyond securing settlement. We work sensitively with clients and families, building relationships and understanding individual circumstances.
This allows us to best represent client interests and to help provide sums for specialist equipment, nursing care, future losses, and any necessary adaptations to a claimant’s home or lifestyle.
As well as this, we always seek to obtain interim payment where possible.
How we have helped our clients:
We helped Ashley receive compensation after she suffered a head injury from being stuck by a car. Healys Solicitors resolved the issue of whose fault the accident was but was concerned when our client was complaining of severe headaches. Paul Keown, who is Healys Solicitors’head injury specialist, arranged for our client to see a consultant where she was later diagnosed with a moderate head injury. Paul was able to successfully argue that our client had suffered the injury at the time of the accident and case was settled. Our client received a significant six figure number that will go towards her ongoing rehabilitation from her injuries.
