    Putting the client at the centre

    Our specialist brain injury solicitors understand that each client has different needs and we adopt a holistic approach to address those needs.
    We appreciate the importance of arranging fast and effective rehabilitation when a client has suffered a brain injury and work with medical professionals, and with the other party’s insurers, to ensure an early rehabilitation package is put in place.

    We will also seek an early compensation payment (known as an interim payment) to lessen the financial impact of the injury.

    Client’s parents’ appreciation of the work done for Martin.
    Martin´s case was complicated and thus took long time. Our experience is that Ms Yaqub has handled it with great patience, skillfulness and kindness. But she also had the courage to go to the Swedish authorities to have Martin´s ”God Man” dismissed when the ”God Man” did not cooperate in Martin´s favour. We strongly believe that a new ”God Man” will serve Martin better in many respects and are very happy for Ms Yaqub´s acting.

    The settlement achieved gives Martin good economical possibilities to have more physiotherapy and new training for example to help himself in the bathroom. He can afford a music therapist and some travelling. Presently, we are in negotiation for Martin to buy a 94 m2 apartment designed for disabled persons located in Älvsjö near public communications. There are three bedrooms so Martin can have friends visiting overnight.

    Thus we heartily recommend Ms Riffat Yaqub to defend the rights of brain-injured persons.” Martin’s Parents

    Child brain injury claims with Hodge Jones & Allen

    We understand the shock and devastation that parents will feel if their child has suffered a brain injury, as well as concerns about how their child’s complex needs will be met now, and in the future. We will work hard to obtain the best financial settlement to address these concerns and ensure arrangements are in place to protect your child should anything happen to you.

    Our specialist solicitors will provide practical and emotional support to help you adapt to changes in your life following your child’s brain injury. For example, we understand the importance of education as a form of rehabilitation for your child and we will assist in communicating with their school and other education professionals so that your child can still learn, develop and maximise their potential.

    We have a close connection with the Child Brain Injury Trust (CBIT) and support brain injured children in having the best quality of life possible.
