Spencers Solicitors are a Headway accredited law firm and are an approved head injury claim specialist; therefore you can be confident that your claim is being dealt with by experienced, specialist legal professionals.
In serious head injury claims we can also organise a home visit as it may be the most convenient and suitable setting to make an initial assessment of the details of the accident and the injury.
We'll work with medical professionals to meticulously define the status of your head trauma and to assess what the long term prognosis will be. Arranging a 'rehabilitation and immediate needs assessment' will be one of the first things we do. From here we will establish both immediate and ongoing medical needs to enable us to present a comprehensive claim that covers the cost of all current and future treatment needs and care, as well as compensation for the pain and suffereing the injury has caused.
We don't see recovering compensation for the injured person, important as that aspect of our work is, as being the sole purpose of someone instructing us to act on their behalf in relation to their head injury claim. In addition:
Any recovery from a head injury can be a long process, but we will be there to help all the way. We'll be pro-active and we'll help reach a legal conclusion as quickly as possible. And, we can handle the claim under a no win no fee arrangement.
Whilst head trauma can occur from virtually any kind of accident, our solicitors often find certain activities can carry more risk of a head injury than others. For example:
Road accidents usually involve a sudden and violent collision. Even if front or side airbags are deployed, the head can still be jarred or strike objects in the vehicle causing damage.
Most workplaces have some kind of injury risk in them, however on building sites this risk can be elevated to life threatening levels with construction work being undertaken at a height and scaffolding use being common place. Hardhats and clear walkways are paramount to maintain employee safety, but if a head accident were to occur even these may not provide sufficient protection from severe injury.
People taking part in sports activities know that in contact sports an injury may be suffered, but teams, sporting venues and official organisers still owe you a duty of care to make sure you are not put at any inappropriate risk.
When a child suffers a head injury it can be a worrying time, as they may not be able to fully express any symptoms of dizziness, headache, nausea or blurred vision. Therefore it is imperative to seek medical attention as soon as possible, as even a minor head injury may require treatment or closer observation for a period of time.
