Child Brain Injury Rehabilitation

We are proud to say that our highly-experienced team of specialists support many children and their families through years of brain injury rehabilitation as part of a personal injury compensation claim. Our solicitors recognise that such an injury can bring lifelong changes, not only for your child, but also to all loved ones and other family members who will need to adjust and adapt to a completely new way of living.

Our work has been recognised nationally for our rehabilitation led approach. Our commitment ensures that all children we represent benefit from a specifically tailored and focussed brain injury rehabilitation programme which also guarantees that 100 per cent of the final damages settlement is awarded to the child for their lifelong care needs.

How we can help your family

When a child suffers a traumatic brain injury

Although awards of compensation in such cases may be high, it is our belief that simply aiming to provide financial security is not enough. Our injured clients, and the families who love them, deserve quality of life too.

That means we’ll focus our efforts on developing a brain injury rehabilitation programme which provides the most appropriate treatment, as close as possible to your family home, alongside building the strongest possible legal claim around the circumstances which caused your child’s brain injury.

Upon discharge from hospital, we utilise home-based clinical therapists, wherever possible, to reduce the strain on both the child and their family of attending numerous appointments in unfamiliar settings.

The care required may also need private sector support rather than the NHS, which all forms part of our child brain injury claim when negotiating with the defendants in the case.

We will ensure services are provided to you in a clear and consistent manner, engaging with the many organisations involved in your child’s upbringing and development to ensure they have the very best opportunities possible.

With compensation payments that can provide vital brain injury rehabilitation services

Part of a child brain injury claim is often an agreement for interim payments to be made in advance of a final settlement, which is often not defined until the child has reached adulthood.

These payments are only available when a defendant admits liability for the brain injury, but when such payments are secured they can pay for private medical treatment, full care plans, or to adapt accommodation to meet a family’s needs, as part of a traumatic brain injury rehabilitation programme.

Staying true to our pledge of always ‘seeing the person, not just the claim’, we have also continued to offer free legal support to children, with a promise of them retaining 100 per cent of the damages secured.

Many law firms scrapped such price promises following statutory legal reforms in 2013, however, at Hudgell Solicitors, we are dedicated to providing vulnerable people with the best legal support free of charge, and ensuring they receive the entire amount of damages awarded. We know the damages received are vital for victims and families to start rebuilding their lives, and to make any adaptations needed at home to live as comfortably as possible in the future.

Due to being accredited specialists in birth injury claims, we are also one of only a small number of firms to have a legal aid franchise for representing families when a child suffers a neurological injury before, during or no later than 8 weeks from birth, through the public purse, ensuring families are not left out of pocket when seeking the compensation and support they will require, often for the rest of the child’s life.

Meet Amanda Stevens – brain injury rehabilitation and compensation specialist and Head of Legal Practice

“As a former hospital manager with responsibility for a central London children’s unit, and the founding secretary of the national child injury group of the Association of Personal Injury lawyers, I know the availability of clinicians and hospital units for treating child brain injury is even more limited than for adults.

“It is with that in mind that I know the importance of establishing strong relationships with rehabilitation providers and support services to best serve our clients.

“In my role as an accredited brain injury specialist, I have responsibility for the rehabilitation service offered by Hudgell Solicitors, and this means ensuring a suitable, tailored and relevant package of support for every brain injury victim we represent.

“Our team of specialist solicitors are highly experienced in working alongside paediatric injury case managers with strong track records in paediatric care.

“They seek appropriate support so that a child can access the most suitable educational pathway, often with the assistance of state funding, topped up as necessary, by private teaching assistant support.

“When personal care and home support needs to be engaged, we can direct families towards specialist nannies who are trained in working with disability.

“When it comes to considering meaningful choices about further education, work or alternatives to work, we have carefully selected vocational rehabilitation providers who offer far more than careers guidance.

“They have extensive experience of brain injury and how ongoing difficulties need to be accommodated whether in college or the workplace.

“For those with the most severe type of ongoing injury they will assist in identifying other forms of activity which can be life enhancing.”
