Why choose Slater and Gordon as your legal representative?

We’ve supported Headway for many years and are one of their trusted legal service providers. We're in the Headway Solicitors Directory for many regions across the UK, including East, London, North West (Liverpool and Manchester), Scotland, Wales and West Midlands.

Over the many years we've supported Headway, we've taken part in a number of their fundraising activities, both for the National Headway charity and many of the Headway branches across the UK.

We understand just how important the support and guidance Headway provides to families who've been affected by brain injury is, which is why we’re proud to be one of their legal service providers, providing families with the legal guidance, support and compassion necessary at what's often a very difficult time.

We strive to ensure that we provide the high level of service our clients would expect from one of Headway's legal service providers and ensure the best possible outcome to their case.

Highly experienced

Our highly specialist personal injury and medical negligence teams have been representing those affected by brain injury for decades, and have been involved in some of the most high-profile and ground-breaking cases.

Having worked with Headway for many years, we understand exactly what difficulties you face and we'll be with you throughout your case, every step of the way.

Strong reputation

We have a strong reputation for achieving outstanding results for cases involving brain injury, as well as ensuring that the best available treatment and rehabilitation is also obtained. Independent legal guides such as Chambers and Partners and Legal 500 have ranked our teams highly over the years and consider many of our experts to be leaders in their field. Over the years, we've also won and been shortlisted in a number of prestigious legal awards such as the Personal Injury Awards, Manchester Legal Awards, Modern Claim Awards, Wales Legal Awards and the Liverpool Law Society Awards.

Medical team of nurses and midwives

Our team, which spans across England, Scotland and Wales, also includes nurses and midwives who are able to offer bespoke medical advice and guidance in addition to the legal expertise provided by our specialist lawyers.

Treatment and rehabilitation support

We work with some of the best case managers and treatment providers in the UK - not only to ensure that the treatment you receive is the best available, but also to seek early interim payments. This is a key part of our strategy to ensure there's funding to begin as soon as possible, giving you the best chance to maximise recovery and future independence.

No financial risk

The vast majority of personal injury and medical negligence cases are funded by a No Win No Fee agreement. This means that if you lose your case, there'll be no cost to you - so no financial risk.

Slater and Gordon is also able to offer Legal Aid funding on medical negligence cases where a child has suffered from a neurological injury at birth or within the early neonatal period, such as cerebral palsy. It’s important to note that not all law firms are able to offer legal aid funding, but Slater and Gordon is an exception.

Once we've taken details of your case from you, we’ll be able to advise you on which risk free funding option is best for you.

Providing a seamless end to end service for all your legal needs

Additionally, as we’re one of the largest law firms in the UK, we also have dedicated experts in a wide range of specialist legal services, who can offer bespoke expertise when it’s needed, such as Court of Protection and family law, in addition to an independent financial planning company, who can help ensure any compensation received lasts your lifetime and gives you financial protection. Having these bespoke services enables us to provide our clients with an end-to-end seamless service for their legal and financial needs.

What are the next steps?

Given our many years of experience helping those who’ve experienced brain injury, we understand the issues you're faced with and are here to help.
