Brain injury claims

If you or someone you know has suffered a brain injury due to a medical error, you may be able to claim compensation.

Starting your brain injury claim

Time can be of the essence when treating many medical conditions and if urgent treatment is not given, brain injuries can occur. For example, stroke, epilepsy and meningitis can all cause brain injury if not treated quickly and early diagnosis of brain tumours is key to successful treatment. A patient undergoing any surgery under general anaesthetic can suffer a brain injury if they receive insufficient oxygen to their brain. Some types of medication can cause swelling in the brain leading to brain damage if they are incorrectly prescribed.

A brain injury can be frightening, emotionally and physically devastating not just for the individual, but the family.  We understand this.  If you have suffered a brain injury or you know someone who has, you don't have to suffer in silence.  We have solicitors who specialise in Brain Injury claims and they can help you find a way forward. 

How we can help you

If you or a loved one have suffered brain injury, you’ll want to talk to someone who has the experience and knowledge to help you find out what has gone wrong, what you can do about it and to be able to help you access appropriate support and rehabilitation. 

We have a strong track-record of helping those who have suffered a brain injury.  We understand the system inside out, and have years of practical experience in brain injury claims.  Our specialist brain injury solicitors have helped our clients to re-build their lives and to get answers about what went wrong as well as financial compensation.

Clear, practical advice

When you come to us for help, we’ll listen carefully to your story; we will ask what’s happened to you and what outcome you might want. Then we’ll use our knowledge and experience to look closely at the details of your case and give you clear, honest and realistic advice. We’ll explain your options in plain language and recommend a way forward.

Whatever you decide, you’ll have our complete support and discretion.

We’ll find out what went wrong

We understand that it is rarely about the money alone - for many people it’s more important to understand what went wrong, and to make sure that the same thing never happens to another family. We’ll help you do that.

Financial Compensation

We will tell you if you have a case for compensation - we've been working with those with brain injuries for years and have won many complex cases.

Every case is unique, but compensation can give you and your family financial security for the future, particularly where there are lasting needs.  It could, for example, pay for professional carers, further medical treatment or therapies, specialist equipment, housing needs and so on. We will factor it all into any claim.

With you every step of the way

You might already have tried to talk to doctors about your condition but sometimes it can feel like you’re on your own. With Tees by your side, you are not.  We understand what you're going through, and we're here to give you a voice.  Our practical, specialist advice can help you move forward.

We know this is a hard time for you and your family, so we’ll do everything we can to make it easier.

We've handled many brain injury claims and so, our lawyers really do have the practical experience to support you and your family. We're persistent, and we'll fight to get answers for you. Whether you’re looking to secure financial compensation or you just want to understand what happened, you can be confident that we’ll be with you all the way.

We realise that you might still be having treatment, so we'll handle your claim sensitively, with sympathy and understanding. We’ll also work quickly and efficiently so that you can have some peace of mind about a more secure future. Everything we do is geared towards getting you the best possible result.  We’ll explain things in plain English and we’ll always keep you informed of what’s going on.

Tees looks at the big picture to give you the best advice - now, and for the future. Looking after your family’s immediate needs is a priority, but we also look at your future needs. We can bring in expertise from our financial, employment, residential, and trusts teams. Together, we'll protect any compensation you receive and ensure it's managed effectively and efficiently. You can be confident that we’re fixed on getting the result that helps you and your family to begin putting your life back together.

Don’t worry about costs

We will not charge you to assess your case – this will be free. 

After that, there are many ways you can pursue the case without you having to pay the costs as the case proceeds, e.g. Insurance, a No Win, No Fee Agreement.  We will discuss the options with you once we have completed the free initial assessment but if you want to know more now, please get in touch.
