Compensation Claims for Catastrophic Injuries
The solicitors at Redress have years of experience in handling catastrophic injury claims. Last year we won over £55 million in compensation claims for our clients.
Redress is recognised as a leading Scottish firm of solicitors capable of making successful claims on behalf of our clients who have suffered a catastrophic injury.
Catastrophic injury claims are complex and awards of compensation can be significant. Due to the complexity surrounding these issues, it is important to have a specialist solicitor from the outset to assist with the claim, in order to maximise your chances of success.
Compensation needs to take into account the need to provide for carers and changes to living arrangements for the victims for the rest of their lives.
24-hour care may be necessary as well as special equipment and your home may also need to be adapted.
Months of rehabilitation and re-training may be necessary. For some people, their serious injury will mean the end of their working lives.
Redress offer skilled catastrophic injury compensation claims solicitors who have helped thousands of victims claim the compensation they deserve in Scotland. We fight for the compensation you and your family deserve. We have always refused to act for insurance companies.
Catastrophic Injury Types
They can be summarised into various categories:
- Spinal injuries
- Head and brain injuries
- Severe burns
Catastrophic injuries and accidents can change your life and that of your family forever.
Why you should use Redress
At Redress we aim to ensure that we discuss fully all of the levels of care required by the victim and the victim’s family and then seek to secure the best possible care on a practical level to be paid by the insurers of the negligent party.
It goes without saying that we will fight to claim the full and just recompense for pain and suffering, financial costs, loss of earnings and loss of pension rights. We will also seek compensation for:-
- Immediate rehabilitation
- Treatment costs and prosthetics
- Adaptations to accommodation
- Care needs
- Equipment including transport and wheelchair
- Tax effective settlement options
It is vital that you contact a specialist solicitor as soon as possible as time limits apply normally 3 years.
Where the injured person is a child, the 3-year limitation period does not commence until he/she turns 18 years of age. There are also special rules for people who cannot manage their own affairs.
Remember, even if you’re not sure, Redress can still advise you free of charge at this stage and are here to help you with any questions you may have...
