We have a dedicated team of catastrophic injury solicitors with years of experience and expertise in handling catastrophic injury claims and supporting those who have suffered.

We offer free no-obligation discussions about your case and offer help and advice on how best to proceed.

Client Communication

We can assess your financial needs, rehabilitation, and future requirements so you can have access to the best medical care for your specific needs and receive interim payments to meet your immediate needs.

How can a catastrophic injury claim help me?

Compensation can help towards paying for medical treatment, any rehabilitation needed or adaptions needed to your home or care if you are left disabled, and cover the cost of any financial losses such as loss of earnings from not being able to work. This compensation will help relieve the financial stress that catastrophic injuries often have on an individual and their families.

When we take on a catastrophic injury claim we take into consideration the pain and suffering you have been through, the effect on your quality of life and mobility, your financial needs, rehabilitation, and future requirements to ensure you get the right amount of compensation you need to make your life easier and more manageable. We also help ensure you get the best possible medical treatment and rehabilitation to get your life back on track following your injury.

How much compensation will I receive?

The amount you will receive for a catastrophic injury will vary from case to case, depending on the extent of the injury and its effect on your life. Claiming compensation for a serious injury like this is a complex process. We have a team of expert lawyers who have years of experience in dealing with catastrophic injury claims and a track record of success.

The final settlement from a catastrophic injury will often be a substantial amount, compared to the average personal injury compensation due to the long-term impact it has on the victim. Many can also be awarded interim payments which help to support the victim in their recovery. The compensation that is awarded will reflect the impact of the injury, the pain and suffering endured, any initial costs and potential future costs as well.

Am I eligible?

If you were involved in an accident that left you seriously injured, and it wasn’t your fault, then you could be entitled to some form of compensation. These cases can be complex, but our specialist lawyers have the understanding and expertise to assess your case and advise you on making a claim. Contact us for a free no-obligation discussion about your injury and we can let you know if you have a case to proceed with.

What is an interim payment?

Interim payments are often given to those who suffer a serious injury to help reduce the financial burdens they are facing as a result of their accident. These payments allow a victim to receive part of their compensation before a final judgement is reached to help pay for things like medical treatment, rehabilitation or cover the costs of their loss of income for having to take time off work. Our team will work hard to secure interim payments for you throughout the claim process to ensure you and your family are cared for and receive the support you need to recover.
