Brain & Spine Foundation launches support videos for head injury victims with help of Hudgell Solicitors

Hudgell Solicitors has given its backing to a national charity providing expert support to those who suffer a head injury or are caring for someone affected by one.

The firm has teamed up with the Brain & Spine Foundation to support the production of a short film and animation on head injuries.

‘What is a head injury?’ is a visual summary of the charity’s Information Standard accredited booklet on the topic, focusing on the different types of head injury and potential after-effects in a clear, concise and accurate way.

‘Understanding head injury’ is a short film giving the personal perspective of Allen Stevens, who suffered a head injury in 1987, and also the explanations of experts Alice Kershberg (Neurotrauma Clinical Nurse Specialist) and Chris Uff (Consultant Neurosurgeon).

Founded in 1992 by neurosurgeon Peter Hamlyn, the Brain & Spine Foundation aims to improve the quality of life of people affected by neurological problems by providing expert information, support and education. It provides support during diagnosis, treatments and in the longer term, to answer questions and provide support throughout a patient’s journey.

Alice Doyle, the charity’s CEO said: “A head injury can impact on life in the long and short term. We hope these two resources will answer people’s questions and alleviate uncertainty, empower them to manage their condition, reduce feelings of isolation and inform people of support available via our Helpline. We are hugely grateful to Hudgell Solicitors for their support in producing them.

Andrea Beer, general marketing manager at Hudgell Solicitors, said: “As a firm which sees the life-changing impact brain and neurological injuries have on not only those who suffer them, but also those around them, we are fully aware how important a strong, informed network of support is in helping people to rebuild their lives.

“The focus of our legal support is always around helping people access such expert support to give them the best possible chance of recovery and rehabilitation, and it is for that reason we work with a number of organis
ations which help people with brain and neurological injuries.

“The Brain & Spine Foundation do so much fantastic work, and given the hugely positive impact the charity’s head injuries booklet has already made, we were delighted to support this project to turn that information into film and animation. We hope it will help the charity share this vital information to a wider audience.”

Both resources are aimed at informing adults that head injury is an increasing problem in the UK, responsible for around 350,000 hospital admissions each year.

There are more thBrain&Spine Videoan 350 different conditions of the brain and spine injury and together they affect more than 12 million people in the UK, both children and adults.

Neurological conditions and associated treatments are often complex and poorly understood by those affected and their families. The Brain & Spine Foundation’s neuroscience nurse run helpline, which supported around 3,500 people in 2016, can be contacted on 0808 808 1000.

Hudgell Solicitors places rehabilitation at the heart of its work, a commitment which is vital in supporting people following serious injury to make the best possible recovery.
