If you have suffered a head injury, whether in a public or private place and you believe that it was through no fault of your own, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. Contact the expert head injury solicitors at Forbes today and speak to a dedicated solicitor ready to help you claim the compensation you deserve.

A head injury can be a devastating experience and harbour long lasting negative effects, rendering victims unable to work and live their life the way they are used to.

Head injuries can also place extreme financial burdens on victims and their families, whether due to the extensive rehabilitation programs that are required or the expensive on-going care that is needed to ensure better quality of life given the circumstances. Here at Forbes, we understand the pressure head injuries can also put on an individual, especially when any mental health problems arise including cognitive and personality changes as this can place extreme pressure and cause many difficulties for the person involved.

With all these factors in mind, our expert team of head injury solicitors fight fearlessly to get victims the compensation they deserve for their injuries, to ensure their quality of life and best interests are upheld. Compensation does so much more than cover pain and suffering, it allows individuals and their families to pursue the best courses of action that will potentially improve their quality of life, through counselling, modifications to the home, rehabilitation and if necessary the appropriate care those victims may need.

In addition, a compensation claim can help pay for any loss of finances in cases where you have had to pay for treatment or have been unable to work due to your injuries.

Our expert team have helped a wide variety of people from all walks of life claim compensation for their head injuries and have secured thousands of pounds for those affected.

If you have suffered a head injury and you believe someone else is to blame contact us as soon as possible. As there are strict deadlines on when a victim can claim compensation, (usually 3 years) it's vital you speak to us today to increase your chances of a positive outcome.

Alternatively, if you are a family member of someone that has been injured or suffered a head injury, we can also help you bring about a claim on their behalf.

What is the claims process?

The first step in making a compensation claim for a head injury with Forbes is contacting us for free initial advice where we will discuss the extent of your injuries or the injuries of your loved one and ascertain as to whether you have a viable claim for compensation.

If we feel you have a claim and the injuries sustained were within the deadline, we will first seek to arrange for early compensation payments to help with the burden of any loss of finances, mounting medical bills or to help cover the costs of any treatments or rehabilitation programs you may need whilst we pursue your claim.

We will also offer you expert advice on any state benefits you could be entitled to as well as advice on any financial planning, or advice on trusts and wills planning and power of attorney.

Will I have to go to court?

No, not necessarily.

Almost 98% of all compensation claims settle out of court, so the chances of you having to step foot in a courtroom are extremely slim. If the case cannot be settled outside of court or we believe that the offer of compensation from the party at fault for the head injury does not reflect the severity of your claim we may have to pursue the case in court. In this case we will support you every step of the way, and will fight fearlessly for the compensation you deserve.

How much will it cost?

We operate on a no win, no fee basis, which means there is no financial risk to you. Your best interests are at the heart of everything we do and the last thing we would want is for people to feel put off from making a compensation claim for fear of being put under financial strain. We will discuss the exact details of your claim so you understand the costs involved when your claim is successful.

What do I do now?

If you have suffered a head injury or are acting on someone else’s behalf, contact our expert team of serious injury solicitors today. We specialise in head injury compensation claims and have recovered thousands of pounds for victims who have had their lives turned upside down by serious injury.

Call us today on freephone 0800 689 0973 or contact us by email to get your head injury compensation claim underway.

Alternatively if you would like a face to face consultation, we have expert Solicitors at each of our offices based in Accrington, Blackburn, Chorley and Preston ready to help you.
