How can Boyes Turner help?

After a fall from height a brain injury is not uncommon, we have dealt with many different types of head or brain injury as a result of a fall, from mild to severe. Whilst damaged brain cells do no regenerate, recovery can still occur. The brain can reorganise itself and rehabilitation helps the brain do this, allowing the victim to also potentially recover physically quicker.

Our specialist brain injury lawyers aim to make sure that their clients have the best quality of life by focusing on early rehabilitation and training. We work with charities and case managers to ensure that practical assistance is given as soon as possible, we can arrange for interim payments to deal with rehabilitation costs, nursing care, specialist equipment, aids and appliances and money to replace lost income.

Making a fall from height claim

Brain injuries can be utterly devastating to the lives of those affected, if the injury was caused because of the fault of an organisation or another person then it may be possible to get financial compensation.

Employers have a duty of care towards their staff and therefore falls from height which happened at work are usually caused by negligent action by employers or fellow employees and making a claim will hold the organisation or individual responsible for the injury and may stop it from happening again.Making a claim can also ensure that quality of life is improved for the client through early rehabilitation, training and an application for interim payments which can help with any pressing financial needs or purchase necessary equipment or care.

"I wanted to take the opportunity to express my thanks..."

I wanted to take the opportunity to express my thanks to you for your professional attitude and handling of the claim throughout this tragic case.  It is in cases like this where the compensation can never compensate for the loss suffered, but hopefully it will help in some way to move forward.
