A knock to the head is always dangerous, but when it leads to a brain injury there can be serious consequences and you will need specialist legal advice.
Bartletts Solicitors are highly experienced in dealing with brain injuries and understand the complex assessment and care needs for compensation claims.
When a gentleman was knocked over at a pedestrian crossing and suffered a brain injury, Bartletts personal injury solicitors in Wrexham got him the compensation he deserved.
The gentleman was half way across the road at a pedestrian crossing when a car collided into him. An ambulance was called and he was taken to hospital where he received emergency treatment. He suffered serious traumas to his head, hip and foot and needed several operations including a hip replacement.
The gentleman remained in hospital for some time and received physiotherapy to help him regain mobility. However, the impact on his head has left him with an irreparable brain injury that will affect him for the rest of his life. His mobility and cognitive reactions are permanently impaired, and he continues to suffer with memory problems.
Our expert personal injury lawyer swiftly made a claim against the driver of the car. The police investigation had shown that the driver had not been paying attention, so we were quickly able to establish a claim for compensation.
However, our astute lawyer also needed to establish the extent of the injured gentleman’s injuries and future diagnosis. He commissioned several expert medical reports, including neurological prognosis.
Our lawyer then skilfully negotiated with the car driver’s insurance company to secure the best level of compensation for the gentleman. The substantial amount of compensation reflected the level of injury suffered and included compensation for personal injury, care and rehabilitation costs.
