Brain injury claims are often the most complicated type of clinical negligence claim to take forward.
As an expert, Anthony Collins Solicitors has over 40 years' of experience dealing with and being successful in brain injury claims, and we have a full grasp of the medical and legal issues associated with such claims. An injury to the brain can range from short-term memory loss to long-term permanent damage affecting speech, balance, mobility, cognitive function, sight or hearing. We have been involved in a variety of claims over the years including securing multimillion pound compensation awards for injuries such as:
- Failure to diagnose and treat haemorrhages
- Mistakes undertook during neurosurgical procedures
- Anaesthetic mistakes
- Delays in diagnosis of brain tumours, which result in a permanent brain injury
We have in-depth medical knowledge of brain injury claims and work alongside eminent medical and other experts to ensure we fully understand what injuries have clients have suffered and the full impact upon their lives. We also work and partner with a variety of organisations that support individuals with brain injuries including the Child Brain Injury Trust and Headway.
