At Hugh James, our child brain injury solicitors have the specialist experience, skills and support mechanisms in place to help families through the difficulties stemming from a child’s traumatic brain injury.

A child brain injury compensation claim requires a specialist approach. When a child suffers from brain damage, it can take years before the full effects can be assessed. When making a compensation claim, the future care and treatment needs of a brain injured child requires professional evaluations to be made. Our solicitors have access to the best possible experts who can assess a child’s future needs in order to claim the correct level of compensation. We act on a no win, no fee basis meaning if you do not win then you will have no fee to pay. Contact us for a free no obligation case consultation.

A child brain injury can happen in a variety of ways, including:

  • Road traffic accidents;
  • Pedestrian accidents;
  • Attending trips or events; or
  • As a result of birth complications.

No matter how the injury was sustained, the life and development of a child may be drastically affected. Commonly a brain injured child may face:

  • Physical and cognitive impairment;
  • Psychiatric impairment;
  • Challenging behaviour;
  • Mood swings;
  • Learning difficulties;
  • Speech difficulties; and/or
  • Seizures.

Our solicitors will fight to ensure the likely future needs of a brain injured child are identified and the most appropriate rehabilitation plan is in place throughout the child’s life. It is important that the likely future needs of the child are assessed by experienced medical experts to ensure the correct level of compensation is awarded. Our brain injury lawyers have access to the best possible experts to assist during the compensation process.
