Serious injury claims

If you've suffered a serious injury, such as a head or spine injury, you might be entitled to claim compensation.

Can I make a claim?

If you've been in an accident and suffered a serious injury, you may be able to claim for compensation. Compensation can help make life easier after an accident. It can help you and your family move forward, financially and emotionally. It can help pay for medical care or specialist equipment - and it can ease the financial pressure if you're unable to work.

The personal injury solicitors at Tees can help you make sense of it all.

You're in control of the process

Serious injury claims are a complex area of the law, so if you’re looking to make a claim it’s vital that you choose somebody to represent you who specialises in serious injuries and who understands the system inside out.

We have in-depth experience of serious injury claims, so we know how they work. Our role is to put you in the financial position you would have been but for the accident – which means recovering your past and future loss of earnings, and ensuring all your care needs are met.

What will happen?

We’ll gather the evidence surrounding your circumstances, and we’ll build a case for a claim that reflects your needs now and in the years to come. We’ll work with insurers to arrange independent assessments for your rehabilitation, which may even include services outside the NHS. Where appropriate, we’ll look to get you cutting-edge care and case management, plus suitable accommodation and vehicles.

Financial compensation

We can also help you with matters beyond your medical needs. So we can advise you on the different benefits you might be entitled to in order to help ease any financial pressures. In some cases we can ask for compensation to be paid every year over your lifetime – for example, to meet care costs.

Planning for your future

On top of that, we can call on our other departments to help with a number issues potentially related top serious injury claims, such as:

  • Financial planning
  • Wills and lasting powers of attorney
  • Court of protection matters
  • Personal injury trusts

We'll make sure that your future is certain. A serious injury can affect your ability to work and get around - so we know how important it is to plan ahead. At Tees, we look at the big picture - so you can enjoy life after your accident.
