Brain Injury & Serious Injury Solicitors

Expert advice on brain injury and serious injury claims

Our Brain Injury and Serious Injury Solicitors provide expert legal support in claims for compensation for people who have suffered head injuries. South Yorkshire-based Head of Brain Injury and Serious Injury Mark Hollinghurst and his team act for clients across Yorkshire, the North of England and beyond.

They advise people who have been injured as a result of accidents or assaults and are experienced in cases involving a wide range of head injuries. The team has particular expertise in cases relating to clients who are in a minimally conscious state (MCS) and clients who have suffered serious brain injury through criminal assault in claims to the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA).

We understand how brain injury can affect daily life. Even minor or moderate head injuries can cause symptoms that make it difficult to carry out normal daily activities. Whatever your symptoms, you could be entitled to claim compensation for lost earnings and for the change in your quality of life.

Our lawyers have particular expertise in dealing with complex brain injury claims, assisting clients who have experienced severe head injuries, whose lives are often affected long-term by the resulting trauma. Our team are passionate about seeking early rehabilitation for our clients and putting in place long-term treatment, care and accommodation.

Our serious injury lawyers are also experienced in dealing with a wide range of serious and complex injury claims, including cases involving amputation, spinal injuries and severe psychiatric/psychological injury.

Switalskis are proud to be on the Headway Personal Injury Solicitors List, confirming their expertise in Brain Injury work.

Brain injury and serious injury claims – our approach

Our approach goes beyond the usual injury claims service. We work closely with our clients, their families and those involved in their care with the aim of providing the maximum rehabilitation and support for them to enjoy the best possible quality of life.

Because we understand that the after-effects of an injury don’t end when a claim is settled, we also offer legal assistance post-settlement. Our Court of Protection solicitors have a wealth of experience advising families who care for people with complex needs resulting from brain injury. We can advise on matters including arranging a deputyship, setting up a personal injury trust or arranging financial advice to ensure that any financial award is handled in a way that best meets our client’s needs.

If you would like to speak to one of our friendly and approachable solicitors, we offer free initial consultations and can arrange to meet you at your home, in hospital or wherever is most convenient for you. We also offer ‘no win, no fee’ agreements where appropriate.

To arrange your free consultation contact Head of Brain Injury and Serious Injury Mark Hollinghurst, or a member of his specialist team on 0800 138 0458 or send a message using the contact form below.
