Catastrophic Injury Solicitors

Losing a close family member in a fatal accident is one of the most traumatic events that anyone can experience in life. This may be a very difficult time for you and that you may have uncertainties about making a claim against the person responsible for your family member’s death.

Catastrophic Injury Solicitors

A catastrophic injury is a serious and debilitating injury to the spine, spinal cord or brain, that has life long consequences. We understand how emotionally devastating this injury is to the person involved and their family. We will support you or your loved one’s journey to recovery or rehabilitation.

Spinal injury

There are four sections of the spine:  

  • cervical (head & neck region),
  • thoracic (mid chest and abdomen),
  • lumbar (hips & legs),
  • sacral (back of thighs, hips, pelvis),

the type and severity of the injury can depend on which section of the spine is injured.

Spinal cord injury – damage or trauma to the spinal cord which results in function and feeling loss.

Brain injury – this is a serious and life altering injury, depending on their severity, it could take months or years for victims to recover. Many victims will never fully heal. The healing process will require extensive hospital stays, multiple types of therapy and much more. All of this can add up and be very expensive.

Many catastrophic injuries are the result of severe car accidents that result in a serious injury such as a spinal or skull fracture. Patients may suffer from a disability and be unable to work, or require medications for life.

What our clients say

How we do things

Step 1. Meeting To Discuss Your Case

To get a better understanding of your case and the injuries you’ve suffered, we’ll organise a consultation with you and the personal injury solicitor best suited to your needs. We can do this over the phone, at our offices or even by video call. We will explain terms such as ‘no win no fee’ and how an injury claim works.

Step 2. Arrange the medical report

Once we’ve assessed your case, we’ll send for your medical reports to be collected from a medical professional.

Step 3. Present the case to the Injury Board

Our highly experienced personal injury* solicitors will put together a detailed and strategic case designed to get you the claim you deserve. We’ll then present this case to the Injury Board.

Step 4. The Injury Board assesses your case

After we’ve presented your case, the Injury Board will assess how much of a *claim you’re likely to win.

Step 5. Decide to accept or reject the offer

As soon as you receive an offer from the injury board, our solicitors will give an honest assessment into how fair they think it is. This will help you decide whether or not to accept it.

Step 6. You receive your *Claim / Go to court

If you choose to accept the offer, an “order to pay” will be sent to the other party and you’ll receive your *claim. If you choose not to accept the offer, our personal injury* team will prepare your case for court.
