Serious / catastrophic injury claims
Serious injury compensation claim
These types of cases are dealt with at Driscoll Kingston Solicitors by a partner-led team. Partners James Driscoll and Karla Kingston will deal personally with your case.
Serious injury clams such as brain injuries, head injuries, spinal cord injury or loss of a Limb, sight / smell all require specialist help. These claims do not only require compensation, they will also need to take future life and rehabilitation into account, and what will be required to provide for your future needs.
Rehabilitation, aids, equipment and medical treatments are all vital in helping someone with a serious injury return, as much as possible, to independent living.
Our job does not simply end with financial compensation. Our service extends to help with the rehabilitation process by providing access to all the support groups needed to adjust to a new way of living. You should not need to call on family and friends to act as unpaid carers, or to rely on the often inadequate service provided by local authorities.
Interim Payments for Serious Injuries
If the defendant’s insurers have accepted liability for the serious injuries, then we can usually arrange substantial interim payments to ease the financial pressures. This means you will get some money before the case is settled to help you with rehabilitation costs, income replacement and other expenses.
