Head and spinal injury claims

At Lyons Davidson, we have head and spinal injury specialists who deal solely with head, brain and spinal injury claims on behalf of the injured party. We deal with injuries that arise from:

  • Road traffic accidents
  • Accidents at work
  • Assaults
  • Clinical negligence

We understand that the needs of those who have suffered head and brain injuries and spinal injuries differ from those who are less seriously injured, and that spinal injury and head injury claims require specialist advice and assistance. We have successfully recovered millions of pounds in compensation for our clients with head injuries and spinal injury.

In cases where liability is established, claims for compensation can be made and substantial damages may be recovered. In cases where liability is not contested, we are proactive in obtaining interim payments for:

  • Setting up care plans
  • Obtaining suitable accommodation, where required
  • Aids and equipment
  • Transport costs
  • Any other assistance required by the injured person and their family while the claim is ongoing

When damages are received, we can advise on setting up a trust to protect means-tested benefits and on the investment of damages through our links with specialist financial advisers.

We can also provide advice and assistance on Court of Protection issues, where the head injured person does not have mental capacity and is unable to manage their financial affairs.

Our specialist experience in dealing with spinal injury and head and brain injury claims is demonstrated by the fact we are on the solicitor list for Headway and the Spinal Injuries Association.

If you think you or a loved one might have a claim, please contact us for a free initial consultation and advice.
