Serious Injury

Serious and catastrophic injury

Brain injury claims and serious & catastrophic injury compensation: Irvings have been specialists in serious and catastrophic injury cases for the past three decades and have a dedicated team of experienced solicitors ready to help clients through, what is for many, the most traumatic time of their lives.

We appreciate that in serious injury cases compensation is only one element of the case.  Serious injuries can have major life changing consequences to both the injured party and their family’s lives. We will be on hand at every step of the case to offer both assistance and also our expertise whilst working with our rehabilitation partners to try to make this time as comfortable and stress free as it can be.

Examples of serious catastrophic injuries

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Amputation of limbs
  • Blindness
  • Severe orthopaedic injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Death caused by injury

Case study

Josh was riding his bicycle afterschool; going for a ride with one of his mates. His friend was riding ahead and Josh following, when they were crossing the road and Josh was struck by a car. This lovely and outgoing young lad was left severely brain injured and his cognitive function was massively impaired. He was in the hospital for six months, his parents struggling to keep up with bills as his mother stayed with him, and soon they were facing eviction on top of his recovery.

The family home was also not deemed suitable for Josh, as it was not wheelchair accessible. Taking into consideration a new home, rehabilitation and a 24/7 lifelong care team; even when his parents are no longer able to care for him, the case was successfully settled for £7 million. Josh and his family could now work on his recovery with peace of mind that they could afford his needs and care.
