Brain Injury

EXPERT BRAIN INJURY SOLICITORS


If doctors treating you fail to spot or treat a brain haemorrhage properly the consequences are likely to be devastating for both you and your family.

These cases require specialist serious injury lawyers like those at Hart Brown who are familiar with the long term consequences of brain injury. In many of these cases the results are obvious for everyone to see. In others the effects on character, behaviour and thought processes are much more subtle but just as significant. Hart Brown Solicitors understand the devastating affects a brain injury can have. Our expert solicitors have extensive experience in dealing with such cases so you can rest easy knowing that you are in safe hands.

We have links with specialist brain injury case managers and other experts who can advise on rehabilitation, the value of care provided by friends/family and the likely costs of future private care which will probably be very significant.

We offer a sympathetic, highly personal service dealing with all aspects of your claim. If as a result of your injuries you are unable to manage your finances we can act as your Court of Protection appointed deputy to make things as straightforward as we can for you.

Brain injury compensation claims which we have dealt with successfully include:

  • £6.5 million (subject to life expectancy) for a failure to treat a sub arachnoid haemorrhage
  • £2.1 million damages for a failure to treat a brain haemorrhage
  • £150,000 damages for a failure to diagnose a brain haemorrhage resulting in partial loss of vision

Gerard Sanders

Gerard qualified with a large regional firm in 1991. Since 1995 he has specialised exclusively on claimant personal injury work. More recently he has focused on complex higher value clinical negligence and personal injury claims.

His greatest success has been winning the high profile case of Delaney-v-The Secretary of State for Transport where after almost 9 years of litigation involving two Court of Appeal hearings and an application to the Supreme Court he was finally able to establish that the Motor Insurers’ Bureau Agreement was incompatible with EEC law. As a direct result of the decision in this case the agreement has had to be amended to the benefit of many future victims of uninsured drivers.

Gerard is a member of the Law Society’s Personal Injury Panel and he appears in the latest Legal 500 rankings in the fields of personal injury and clinical negligence.

Gerard’s other professional qualifications include a Diplome D’Etudes Juridiques Francaises from Strasbourg University.
