1. Slater and Gordon Lawyer Jennifer Maloney secured £480,000 compensation for a 77 year-old woman left unable to manage her own affairs after suffering a serious head injury in a car accident on holiday in Spain. Liability and jurisdiction were initially disputed in the case but Jennifer succeeded in achieving a judgment in England with English damages.
2. Slater and Gordon Lawyer Richard Geraghty secured £750,000 compensation for a young woman who suffered a brain injury before she was born. Richard started this compensation claim nearly 20 years after the head injury accident took place. Richard tracked down the defendant motorist and identified the drivers insurance company at the time of the accident. Richard proved that the brain injury condition was caused by a foetal skull fracture in the road traffic accident.
Interim Payments allow you to receive part of your compensation settlement before the final judgement is reached. However, Interim Payments are only available when liability has been admitted by the other side, but the money can pay for private medical treatments, if required, pay for rehabilitation support and equipment, to adapt living accommodations, loss of earnings and to set up a care regime.

It's important that certain precautionary steps are taken to determine the type of head injury and to exclude other injury such as a brain injury. All head injuries require immediate assessment, regardless of their apparent severity due to the potentially significant effects they can have. We recognise the important distinctions to be made when assessing how to proceed with your case and when determining the type of interim and future assistance you might require.
