It is difficult to imagine or understand the consequences for someone who is affected by a serious injury such as brain injury, spinal cord injury or loss of limb. Digby Brown Solicitors has been helping the families of a loved one who has sustained a serious injury as a result of negligence after an accident, for many years. As a firm we are personal injury specialists but that doesn’t really tell the story.
Digby Brown Solicitors has over 40 years’ experience helping people who have sustained a serious injury, recovering over £28 million in compensation last year alone for clients with a brain or spinal cord injury.
The firm has an enviable reputation within serious injury compensation, being the only firm in Scotland who are ranked tier and band 1 in pursuer personal injury by leading who’s who publications, Legal 500 and Chambers and Partners.
The department of nine, based in the firm’s Glasgow office, only deals with serious injuries relating to the spine, brain or loss of limb and therefore comprehends fully the life changing challenges ahead.
In cases where life changing injuries are sustained using a specialist solicitor is vital. Seeking rightful and fair compensation after the accident is just one aspect of the package of measures which needs to be considered and implemented to try and ensure that the process of rehabilitation and adjustment can start.
Digby Brown aim not only to assist our clients to receive full and prompt compensation, but also to help them to achieve the best outcome physically, psychologically and emotionally.
We try to start this process from the moment we are instructed rather than waiting for compensation to be awarded. We can immediately provide advice and support on statutory benefits and how to access local authority social services through our in-house welfare rights service. We subscribe fully to the Rehabilitation Code of Practice and to the Association of Personal Injury Lawyer’s (APIL) Best Practice Guide to Rehabilitation.
We recognise that the medical condition and quality of life may be improved by early intervention, by the carrying out of an immediate needs assessment and by early interim payments.
Once you have been in touch with us about claiming compensation, we will follow up our initial discussion wherever possible by arranging a face to face meeting with you, either in our office, hospital or we are happy to come to your home. At this first meeting we will explain exactly what actions we will be taking and the process involved in seeking financial compensation. We will also let you know what you can do to help us and explain more fully how we fund the case.
Digby Brown operate a funding scheme which is similar to no win no fee funding which ensures all costs in the legal process are met by us throughout the case using our insurance product “Compensate”. This means we can fully investigate your case and use all the resources at our disposal to ensure you receive the maximum amount of compensation you are entitled to, without any financial risk to you.
In short, you will never be asked to pay for anything during the legal process.
In the first instance we urge you to contact us. We are always happy to chat and give advice on your circumstances and the prospect of a legal remedy for the brain or spinal injury or loss you have incurred.
You can contact Chris Stewart, Partner and Head of our Serious Injury Department, directly on 0141 566 9541 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
