Headway accredited brain injury solicitors

If you suffer broken bones in an accident you can see the impact the accident had. But what if you sustain a brain injury?

While the injury may not be apparent, brain injury survivors and their families often have significant, permanent life-style changes to deal with.

If you decide to pursue compensation to help get your life back on track, you want to know that the solicitor you choose to work with is fully capable of providing the entire support needed.

Atherton Godfrey is an accredited member of Headway, the brain injury association, something that can only be achieved by specialist solicitors with extensive experience of handling brain injury cases.

Accreditation is awarded on an annual basis, following a rigorous assessment of the solicitor’s skills, experience and ability to provide comprehensive support to brain injury survivors.

Brain injury survivors need support in ways that others may not even think about. For example, recalling important details can be difficult, or even impossible.

Survivors may need extensive support from family members or specialist carers to enable them to attend medical or legal appointments. These difficulties, along with the frustration often felt, are well understood by our team of accredited experts.

In addition to the specialist solicitors, we also have qualified nursing staff on the team and have access to an extensive network of medical and support professionals.

Do you need legal support?

Brain injury is a highly complex subject and the claim will probably take time to settle, so you need to be comfortable working with the solicitor. If you would like to speak to us, on a no obligation basis, call 01302 320621 or email
