Our major trauma compensation lawyers secure funded rehabilitation, practical specialist support, and financial compensation for clients with multiple or severe injuries which could lead to permanent disability or death.

What is major trauma?

Major trauma is life-changing (often multiple) injury which may lead to permanent disability or death. In England each year, there are an estimated 20,000 cases of major trauma. Of these, around 5,400 lead to death, with many more facing permanent disability and a long-term need for care.

Recovery after major trauma depends on correct emergency (acute) treatment followed immediately by comprehensive and properly coordinated rehabilitation which meets the injured person’s individual needs. Delays, inadequate assessment or coordination, or gaps in treatment from one or more specialisms in the multidisciplinary team may significantly affect the injured person’s long-term recovery.

The NHS recognises the importance of the injured person’s major trauma pathway from injury through acute care and rehabilitation to discharge but is rarely able to provide rehabilitation which meets the patient’s needs.

Starting your major trauma claim

Our clients have suffered life-changing and often catastrophic injuries in accidents on the road, at work, whilst abroad, or in sporting, leisure or public facilities.

We help them and their families through the challenges which follow a sudden, devastating injury, and secure timely, individually tailored rehabilitation to maximise their recovery. We help them rebuild their lives, restoring independence, quality of life and financial stability through their entitlement to compensation from those who were at fault.

Where the injury was someone else’s fault, Boyes Turner’s serious injury lawyers can help secure immediate, full and funded rehabilitation when it matters most. The earlier the rehab, the greater the recovery.

Each client’s needs are carefully assessed, and their rehabilitation overseen by expert clinicians and case managers, often in collaboration with the client’s healthcare team within the NHS. On discharge from hospital, we work to ensure that our client’s needs for suitable accommodation, care, specialist equipment and ongoing support are properly met.

Sudden, serious injury can cause severe financial hardship, particularly when the injured person loses their job or is unable to return to work. In most cases, we can obtain interim payments (advance part payments of compensation) to help relieve the additional stress caused by concerns about money.

What our clients say


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.

"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!
