Have the best brain injury claims team on your side
At Osbornes, one of our primary areas of practice is head and brain injury litigation. Our expert team has over 40 years of experience in this area, and has secured some of England’s largest compensation settlements.
Head and brain injuries can be very serious. These injuries often have a profound effect on speech, memory and other cognitive abilities. While many people go on to make a full recovery, some experience significant lifestyle and employment challenges that last a lifetime.
Our aim is to ensure your long term recovery. To help us do this, when necessary, we will instruct medical experts who can advise on the longer term effects of your injury. Our lawyers will then work hard to get you early or interim payments to cover your rehabilitation expenses. In addition to securing you a financial package, our job is to make sure you have access to the best therapists and care providers to help rebuild your quality of life.
For expert advice or to start your claim, please call our specialist brain injury solicitors today.
