Why should I make a head or brain injury claim with the experts at Jefferies Solicitors?
- Our experienced serious injury solicitors have recovered millions of pounds in compensation but there is more to Jefferies Solicitors than the bottom line.
- Our main aim is simple: to help the victims of serious injuries, and their families to win back their quality of life.
- We will help you access the very best care and rehabilitation.
- In the wake of a major head injury, victims often require ongoing medical services and life-long full-time care. Brain injury claims must account for not only the pain and suffering of the victim but also all of the associated costs which will be involved for years to come.
- We fight tirelessly to ensure your best interests and those of your loved ones are looked after.
HOW DOES THE CLAIMS PROCESS WORK?
At Jefferies Solicitors, once we have carried out an initial consultation, we will take care of the paperwork required to get your case underway.
A letter will be sent to you following an initial consultation with your solicitor. This will be a summary of the meeting you had and will confirm that they are happy to take on your case. It will highlight who will be your contact and estimate how long the process will take. The letter will also detail how you will be funding the case and an estimate of costs. If you need to provide any further information this will also be included.
A letter will then be sent to the defendant, providing details of the accident. The defendant has a fixed period in which they can reply and in their reply, they must state whether or not they are denying or accepting liability for your injuries. If they do accept liability, your solicitor will endeavour to settle the case out of court.
HEAD INJURY COMPENSATION PAYOUTS UK
All personal injury cases are unique and so the amount of compensation that is awarded in each case is also unique. The amount of compensation that is awarded is determined by looking at two distinct factors – general damages and special damages.
The pain and suffering that your injuries have caused is the main factor that is used to determine how much compensation you are owed. This will usually be determined by undergoing a medical examination, from which a report is created that outlines the length of time the injuries will take to heal as well as their severity.
Our compensation calculator gives an indication of how much you might be entitled to based upon your injuries. Jefferies Solicitors will take these different details relating to your injury into account when calculating how much compensation you should be awarded, which will then be put forward to the opposing side and the judge.
However, compensation also takes into account any financial losses that you might have suffered as a result of your injuries, such as a loss of earnings due to being unable to return to work. If you have had to pay for treatment or travel to treatment, compensation may also be able to cover this as well. Therefore, you should keep any receipts or other documents that help to outline the extent of your financial losses, as caused by your accident/injuries.
