HEAD & BRAIN INJURIES
Aamer Anwar in Association with Bonnar Accident Law is one of Scotland’s leading head and brain injury specialist law firms.
Accidents resulting in injury to the head and brain can be extremely serious and injured people need immediate medical attention and observation to ensure that any potentially life-threatening condition is identified and the person properly cared for in the hours and days following the incident.
Following admission to the A&E department, a serious head injury may require a long-term stay in hospital, multiple operations and months of nursing care and support therapies.
The shock and distress caused to the injured person’s family can be totally devastating. The days and weeks following hospitalisation are very difficult and the family has enough to cope with as everyone comes to terms with the extent of their loved-one’s injuries and their changed circumstances.
HOW WE PREPARE A BRAIN INJURY CLAIM
Brain injury claims can be complex and in some circumstances obtaining evidence can be challenging given that the injured person is often unable to explain what happened to them.
Our solicitors will obtain detailed statements from witnesses and commission experts to examine the scene of the accident and any vehicles, plant or machinery involved. We will obtain any police reports and Health & Safety Executive accident reports and findings.
We will arrange for leading hospital consultants to examine your injured relative and prepare detailed reports covering their medical treatment needs, available specialist equipment, rehabilitation therapies and nursing care requirements. We are guided by one principle – to obtain the every best long-term support package for the brain-injured person regardless of the cost.
Our solicitors ensure that the claim is properly valued based on the person’s long-term care needs and their life-expectancy. Quantifying the value of the case is an absolutely crucial component of the claim and it requires an experienced legal team to get it right.
HOW WE WORK WITH THE FAMILY
Put simply, we explain what we are doing and we keep everyone informed of progress. In some cases the court will appoint an independent guardian to represent the interests of the brain-injured person. Our solicitors will explain how this system works and how it is designed to safeguard the person’s interests.
When the family contacts us to discuss making a claim, we will arrange an initial meeting to review every aspect of the case. This meeting can be held anywhere to suit the family. We are very happy to meet with family members at different places and at different times to ensure that everyone involved has all the information they need to make an informed choice.
Once we are appointed to manage the case we will take care of everything. Most claims settle out of court, but should we have to proceed with litigation in order to achieve justice we will take the claim forward without hesitation.
If you have a family member who has sustained a head or brain injury, then Aamer Anwar in Association with Bonnar Accident Law can help them claim compensation on a ‘No Win-No Fee’ basis.
