Brain Injury Department Overview
They call it a hidden disability but for those closest to someone who has an acquired brain injury it is anything but hidden. It is hard to imagine or understand the consequences for someone who is affected by a brain injury. Digby Brown has been helping the families of a loved one who has sustained a brain injury as a result of negligence in an accident, for many years. As a firm we are personal injury specialists but that doesn’t really tell the story.
Digby Brown has worked with people and been involved in Scotland with organisations involved in brain injury for over 30 years. The experience built up over this time truly allows us to call ourselves experts in our field.
Does that help you? Not really. As a family member of someone, who is a patient in hospital or has been recently discharged, you are still reeling from the immediate aftermath of a serious accident. You will have many questions. Some of them you might not at this stage want to know the answer to. We understand this, we have helped many other families in the same situation, over time, come to terms with the situation and deal with the issues.
The pages in this section of the website will tell you a little bit about our involvement and how and where we can help. Yes, fundamental to this is gaining financial compensation however knowing when and how you will need this compensation is where our expertise really lies.
To start we urge you to pick up the phone or email to have a chat. Call either Robert Swanney, head of the department on 0141 566 9502 or Moira Kay on 0141 566 9547 partner in the department, to discuss your families circumstances and see if we can help.
We work alongside Headway, both locally and nationally, the Child Brain Injury Trust , Momentum, the Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust and the Huntercombe Group. We are also members of the Scottish Head Injury Forum and the Brain Injury Network Group.
