Types of negligent brain injury claims - and why you need an expert
Medical negligence brain injury claims can sometimes be complex, and this is why it’s so important to have a highly trained specialist working on your case. Slater and Gordon’s expert solicitors have many years’ experience in dealing with the difficult medical and legal issues associated with securing medical negligence compensation for brain injuries. In particular, we’ve secured compensation for:
- Failure to diagnose strokes and haemorrhages
- Mistakes during surgery
- Failures to obtain consent from the patient
- Mistakes involving anaesthetic
- Birth injuries
- Failure to prevent subarachnoid haemorrhage
If you’ve been a victim of medical negligence and suffered a brain injury as a result, our specialist solicitors can help in a number of ways. As well as offering legal advice and helping our clients to secure medical negligence compensation for what happened, we can also help to connect you with support for your rehabilitation and recovery.
We always put our clients first. If you need our assistance, please call our negligent brain injury solicitors on freephone 0808 175 8000 - 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You can also contact us online and we’ll be happy to get back to you.
Interim payments in brain injury claims
In some cases, our solicitors may be able to obtain early part-payments of compensation for our clients. These are called interim payments and are designed to help the victim of medical negligence to cover costs relating to medical care should they need it.
Interim payments are only available when liability has been admitted by the other side, but the money can be extremely useful for those who’ve experienced injury or brain damage due to medical negligence. It can pay for private medical treatments, rehabilitation support and equipment, adapted accommodation, loss of earnings and to set up a care regime.
Crucially, interim payments provide this financial support when it’s really needed - when the patient is recovering.
To find out about interim payments and whether you could be eligible to claim them, please call our clinical and medical negligence solicitors on freephone 0808 175 8000 or start your compensation claim online and we'll call you at a time that’s convenient for you.

No Win, No Fee negligent brain injury claims
You shouldn’t be left out of pocket simply for pursuing compensation after a medical mistake. You’ve been left injured by a preventable mistake, and the law says you can start a claim for compensation - but why should this mean you have to risk your finances?
This is why 98% of our clinical and medical negligence claims are funded through a Conditional Fee Agreement, more commonly known as No Win, No Fee. An agreement of this kind effectively eliminates any risk associated with starting negligent brain injury claims, as it means that you won’t have to pay anything unless you win your case.
Public funding from the Legal Aid Agency is also available in certain cases, such as cerebral palsy. Once you’ve explained the details of your case to one of our brain injury experts, we’ll be able to confirm the best way to fund your claim.
For more information about starting a claim, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with our experienced negligent brain injury solicitors. You can contact us online or call our 24/7 freephone line on 0808 175 8000 for legal advice you can trust.
