Penningtons Manches' brain injury and head injury specialists use their in-depth knowledge of personal injury law to help you achieve the best outcome possible from your brain injury claim.

A vast range of circumstances can give rise to accidents that are serious enough to cause a brain injury. The effects can be devastating, both for the injured person and their family. Care needs are frequently very significant and it is the substantial cost of future care that often leads Penningtons Manches' clients to pursue brain and head injury claims.

Every brain and head injury case is different and we always tailor our advice to each client’s specific objectives. Our lawyers seek to secure the most favourable conclusion possible in brain injury compensation claims, not only financially, but also to address medical and other needs resulting from the accident. We encourage defendants to meet these needs at the earliest possible stage, securing interim payments to fund rehabilitation where appropriate.

Our brain injury solicitors have particular expertise in this area and are familiar with working with brain injury case managers, obtaining funding and making provision for the recruitment of care teams, dealing with location, purchasing and adaptation of suitable accommodation, investigating wheelchair and transport needs, setting up support and therapy packages, and helping people to maximise their independence and lead as normal a life as possible. We understand the cognitive and behavioural issues that are often the consequence of brain injury and the rehabilitation needs that arise as a result, as well as the psychological impact on our clients and their families.

We are recommended by the brain injury charity Headway as well as being accredited by the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL). Members of the team are Senior Accredited Litigators with APIL and on the Law Society recommended personal injury lawyers panel.
