Head & brain injury claims frequently asked questions

What kind of accidents can lead to a brain injury compensation claim?

Recent head & brain injury cases

  • £7 million compensation settlement for a client who suffered a brain injury whilst car surfing on the bonnet of a friend's moving car. During the claim, extensive rehabilitation was funded from £700,000 interim payments.  
  • £3 million compensation plus £225,000 of funded rehabilitation for a young woman who was hit by a speeding driver’s vehicle whilst crossing the road on a pedestrian crossing. Our client’s multiple injuries included a very severe traumatic brain injury (3/15 on the Glasgow Coma Scale) and an acute subdural haemorrhage with bruising and damage to her brain. Following rehabilitation, she managed to complete her education and achieve supported independent living. 
  • £2 million for a teenager who suffered catastrophic injuries including a severe head injury after running across the road at night into the path of a taxi. The case was strongly defended by the driver who claimed that our client’s actions left him no time to take evasive action. The £2 million settlement took into account our client’s own contributory negligence. 
  • £1,825,000 compensation plus £150,000 of rehabilitation for a pedestrian who suffered a brain injury when he was hit by a speeding driver’s vehicle. Interim (advance) payments eased the family’s financial hardship and paid for an immediate needs assessment (INA) and early rehabilitation. Kim Milan’s insistence on a cooperative approach to rehabilitation resulted in the defendant’s insurers fully funding our client’s ongoing rehabilitation. 
  • £1 million compensation settlement in an international RTA case for a man who suffered facial and head injuries, including a fractured skull and subdural haematoma, when he was hit by a lorry whilst standing on the hard shoulder in France. Interim payments of £100,000 paid for a support worker, case management and rehabilitation. Under French law, we also secured compensation payments for his (uninjured) family. 
  • £750,000 compensation plus funded rehabilitation for a young woman who suffered a severe brain injury in an RTA when her stationary car was hit by the defendant driver’s vehicle. Our client’s parents were told that she might not survive her injuries. With the help of rehabilitation she regained her independence and is able to work. Funding for rehabilitation was achieved despite the claim being hampered by lack of witness evidence or a police report, and the defendant appearing to have had right of way. Liability was finally admitted and settlement achieved after the driver was convicted of dangerous driving. 
  • £550,000 compensation and over £26,000 of funded rehabilitation for a teenager who suffered a head injury with multiple skull fractures and bruising to his brain when he fell from the boot of his friend’s  moving car. Our client’s compensation for his injuries was reduced by 35% from a total compensation figure of over £845,000 to take into account his own ‘contributory negligence’. We secured funding from the defendant driver’s insurers for a full programme of early rehabilitation. With the help of  rehabilitation and his compensation, our client will be able to undertake modest level work and live independently with ongoing support.

What our clients say

"Exceptional"

Kim at Boyes Turner was recommended to me after I had received ineffective service from another company. From the outset, Kim has been professional, reassuring and supportive. I have always had faith in her ability to get the best outcome, not only financially, but also in helping my rehabilitation from a traumatic brain injury. She is friendly and empathetic, with unquestionable professional integrity. She was quick to grasp the important issues in my case, was meticulous in her investigating the details and analysing them, realistic in what the outcomes were likely to be and achieved a successful outcome.

I would not hesitate in recommending her and Boyes Turner.

"Amazing people"

Almost 5 years ago my sons suffered a life changing brain injury accident. A new life for everyone, so many unknowns so many difficult decisions. I met Claire and the team shortly after the accident. So many questions answered but more than that, amazing lovely people. Claire has been guiding me and the family throughout this ordeal with such compassion, there every time I needed her we couldn’t of asked for a nicer person. I have met many others with in Boyes Turner and all have been genuine lovely people, I’m now working with Ruth and Lindsay from the court of protection. Again, I can't say enough about them amazing lovely people. They truly do won't the best for my son and they did and continue to do so.

Barry Williams

"Personal Injury Claim"

Claire is exceptionally knowledgeable in the personal injury legal domain, especially in the specific area of my injury. From our very first conversation, she was clear in explaining the potential different routes that the process could take and provided me with expectations of what I could expect along the journey.

She ensured that all bases were covered, organising meetings, discussions and necessary specialist appointments, in order to bring together the case and take it forward. Claire was then able to use her extensive pool of contacts, to appoint an "area leading" barrister, to represent me.

Overall, I was very pleased with appointing Claire and Boyes Turner to act as my solicitor for the legal claim that I pursued. Thank you for all of your support.

"Boyes turner workplace injury claim"

I approached Claire Roantree of Boyes Turner in regards to making a claim about a workplace burns injury. It was something that had scarred me physically and mentally and taken a huge toll on the lives of me and my family. Claire wasted no time in finding out what happened and made sure I was treated by known experts and quickly finding an answer to my burns scarring and how I could be treated to help manage my pain. Claire also helped me by appointing a psychiatrist to understand my situation and help me cope with post traumatic stress disorder. As well as taking as much stress of the claim away, she was thorough in every situation, making sure I had the best possible claim, and handled it all expertly, I am so very grateful to her and her team. They have helped guide my life back into a positive direction and I can't thank her enough!
