Brain Injuries

A brain injury can occur from a road traffic accident, or a workplace accident, or from a fall.

These injuries normally involve direct trauma to the head.

It is the case that brain injuries can range in severity from very severe brain damage where a person is confined to a bed and is unable to do anything for him/herself to the opposite range where one might have mild concussion for a limited period of time.

Where you or a family member have suffered a very serious brain injury then we appreciate that this time will be very worrying for you and your family and particularly with regard to the future and all of the financial woes and expense that comes with a very severe brain injury.

We at Downes solicitors have experience of representing many clients over the years with severe brain injury damage claims and we know that a large component of those claims involves the loss of income that one would suffer by reason of their injury, the additional cost for medical and nursing care, and further the cost of the medial aids and appliances required so that a person with a very severe brain injury can continue to live an active and independent life insofar as that is possible.

We have access to a range of experts both medical and financial, to assist with the accurate and full calculation of our client’s losses from very severe brain injury, as the case may be. If you or your family member require assistance in the pursuit of such a claim and legal action, please contact Downes Solicitors for specialist claims and legal advice.

    Personal Injury : Your Top Questions Answered

    How long can a personal injury claim take?
    AYour claim length will depend on a number of factors such as; your type of injuries, the insurance company your dealing with, your PIAB application, the assessment and then whether you move on to legal proceedings.
    How much compensation will I be entitled to?
    AThat figure is hard to immediately determine. The book of quantum can help to give you some indication but the other factors that will be taken into consideration are:

    • Liability: who was at fault for the accident.
    • Injuries: the severity of the injuries
    • Expenses: all of the bills that were paid.
    Will my claim go to court?
    A Every case is different. In the majority of personal injury cases, the person making the claim will not end up in a courtroom.

    It is possible that the person at fault will seek to settle outside of court and your case will be settled in a meeting attended by you, your solicitor, and barrister to negotiate your settlement.

    It is entirely up to you whether to accept the settlement offered. If you do not accept then it will move to a court hearing where a judge will decide how much your settlement will be.
