As a parent it is the worst possible thing imaginable to see your child suffer. You will have to make decisions on medical treatments, rehabilitation options and schooling at what will be an emotionally draining time.
Where we can help is by making sure that your child receives the best possible care right from the start to give them the best possible chance of recovery. As lawyers we can help contribute to your child’s recovery by making sure a care plan is put in place straight away, by making sure you have access to all necessary rehabilitation and therapies, including obtaining extra therapy if required. We will also work at making sure that your child receives appropriate financial compensation and work at securing an interim payment, which in turn will secure on-going top rehabilitation.
When it comes to assessing your child’s needs we will make sure you have access to specialist paediatric care and treatment. We also know how important education is and often after a head or brain injury this can often be delayed or disrupted. We can help in making sure that education is provided to your child that meets their needs and changing circumstances.
Financial compensation cannot make up for the distress and suffering you and your child will have been through after a head injury, however it can take away the worry and stress of wondering how you will support your child in the future. Because it can take a long while for a child to adjust to the aftermath of a head injury securing financial compensation is a long process, which is necessary to ensure you receive the right level of compensation. With this in mind we will work at securing you an interim payment so as to make sure you are not under any financial pressures.
