Around one million people attend hospital with some form of head trauma or brain injury every year. A substantial percentage of these people suffer ongoing symptoms after their head injury. These symptoms range from mild, short-term difficulty with memory to severe cognitive disability.
Clarke Willmott will now help the organisation provide a complete package of support to those who need it, following a tough application process and having demonstrated particular expertise and experience in brain injury litigation. The team of brain injury solicitors at Clarke Willmott specialise in dealing with the issues that arise from brain injury, including bringing claims for brain injury compensation and advising on issues relating to capacity, financial affairs and care.
Chris Thorne, head of personal injury and medical negligence at Clarke Willmott, commented: “We’re delighted to be working with the Brain Injury Group, which does fantastic work in helping families access legal, welfare and statutory funding help as well as many other services. It’s great to have this accreditation and to work with like-minded organisations across a range of professions who are experienced in dealing with acquired brain injuries to secure the best results for our clients.”
Managing director of Brain Injury Group, Sally Dunscombe, said: “Chris Thorne and the team at Clarke Willmott have an outstanding reputation for assisting people who have sustained a brain injury and we’re delighted to have them as members of Brain Injury Group.”
