Helping Hand With Rebuilding a Life Post-Accident

There are times when an accident leaves a lasting, life-changing impact on a person.

That was the case when our client was crossing the road, via a designated zebra crossing, only to be struck, without warning, and knocked over by the defendant.

The impact and immediate aftermath of the accident left our client with catastrophic, life-changing injuries, including a severe brain injury.

How did Winns help?

After hearing our advert on TV and radio, the client’s family turned to Winn Solicitors and the Serious Injury Team with the client still in hospital. Even before being discharged, our specialists arranged a raft of assessments, liaising with the hospital and local council to ensure it was safe to discharge the client and also get the required equipment ready for them leaving the hospital. All of this takes time and expertise in the matter.

David Burn, a solicitor specialising in serious injury, began helping the client immediately with a number of arrangements to ensure a holistic and coordinated approach to their care and rehabilitation, with a case manager and care team instructed to start treatment.

A neuro-physiotherapist, neuro-occupational therapist, neuropsychologist and support workers were all arranged. Due to the severity of the brain injury sustained, a Court of Protection Deputy was also brought in to help the client manage their property and financial affairs because our team doesn’t just focus on the physical barriers, but also the lifestyle alterations that inevitably come with any serious injury.

Solicitor David Burn said; “Once the requirements of our client were established, we set about providing everything needed to boost their recovery.

“People often don’t realise the amount of support serious injury clients may need, depending on circumstances, with a range of different services often required at varying stages of the recovery process.

“We were pleased to arrange settlement of over £4m for our client, which will allow them to make suitable adjustments for a life affected by serious injury, including the provision for ongoing future case management and treatment.”
