When a very serious injury is suffered, there will often be irreversible and life changing damage, such as paralysis, severe traumatic brain damage, amputations, severe burns or even death. Whatever the injury, it is essential that a specialist solicitor is instructed who understands the nature of the injury and the need for proper funding to support care, aids, housing and therapy regimes which must often last a lifetime.
