Brain & Serious Injury Claims Involving Children

If your child has suffered a head, brain, spinal or other serious injury as a result of an accident or other event such as clinical negligence, you should seek specialist legal advice – regardless of the circumstances.

The law regarding children differs significantly from legislation for adults and sadly it is often wrongly assumed that a claim for compensation for children cannot be made.

What services do we offer?

Our experience means we understand the often complex issues faced by the parents or carers of a seriously injured child and can offer advice not only on compensation but on issues such as:

  • Rehabilitation
  • Therapy
  • Case management
  • Family support
  • Education

Why go to Birchall Blackburn Law?

Our role is to ensure the child and their family receive the very best help and advice. We start by working out if anyone was to blame. If this is the case, we will gather expert evidence to ensure your child’s future needs are fully met.

Invariably, it takes time to work out the long term impact of injury to a child and we liaise with teachers, case managers, educational support workers and others to identify all requirements before beginning the process of negotiating a settlement.

Our team of approachable experts have more than 20 years’ experience in this area of law. We are accredited by Headway, Child Brain Injury Trust (CBIT), the UK Acquired Brain Injury Forum (UKABIF) and the Brain & Spinal Injury Centre (BASIC). In addition we are Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL) senior litigators and Law Society Personal Injury Panel members.

How much does it cost?

There are a number of ways to fund your case and often the best option is a no win no fee agreement. When we discuss your claim in detail we will explain all the funding options.
