Our head and brain injury expertise
Child brain injury
An internal head injury to a child could have serious implications, resulting in bleeding or bruising of the brain. Child brain injury compensation claims require a sensitive approach, and at Osbornes we have a dedicated team of solicitors who deal with this area. We understand the difficulties of advising a family after a child has suffered a head or brain injury and the need for reassurance.
Criminal injury claims
A resulting head injury from an act of violence can be devastating. Compensation for medical expenses and loss of salary can be claimed from a government scheme, operated by the Criminal Injury Compensation Authority (CICA) which is part of the Department of Justice. Our team of successful and highly experienced lawyers possesses the special skills to guide you through the criminal injury scheme, and gain financial support after sustaining a serious head injury.
Head injury abroad or on holiday
When an incident resulting in head injury occurs abroad, distress can be even worse. You may worry about paying for medical care and how to organise a trip home. Specialist legal advice for claiming compensation is essential. The dynamic legal team at Osbornes is renowned for understanding the issues that can arise following a head or brain injury abroad. Our lawyers offer the highest level of professionalism and expertise, combined with dedication and sensitivity.
Head injury in a public place
Whether you are in a restaurant, shop or office, slips, trips and falls, possibly from slippery or damaged floors, or obstructions, are common. The owners have a duty to keep their premises in a safe condition. Many accidents also occur each year on roads, footpaths and pavements, possibly from defective surfaces or loose cabling, whereby the Local Authority is responsible. In each case, serious brain or head injury can be the result and if the accident was not your fault, you have a right to compensation.

Head injury at work
If you have suffered a head or brain injury at work that was not your fault, you may be eligible to claim compensation. Work accidents may be due to operating dangerous machinery, faulty appliances, lack of safety equipment and other causes. They may occur at school, on a construction site, in a factory, office or restaurant. If your employer failed to take reasonable steps to protect you, you have a right to pursue a work accident claim. Consult our leading team of personal injury lawyers who will act on your behalf in this difficult area.
Injury from a road traffic accident
If you have suffered a head injury, including whiplash, from a road accident that was not your fault, you may be eligible to claim for compensation. A medical report and precise details of the incident will be needed. Whether a driver, passenger, pedestrian or a motorcyclist, it is important to seek legal advice from an expert personal injury solicitor who will be sensitive to the pain and suffering the injury has caused
