Serious and Catastrophic Injury

Firstly, we are sorry if you are reading this because you or a loved one has sustained a serious injury.  We understand that suffering from serious injury and coming to terms with that injury can be traumatic and daunting – not just for you but also for your loved ones.  The injury can have immediate and sometimes unforeseen long-term consequences which can have a lasting impact on those aspects of life once taken for granted.

At Lysander Law, our Serious Injuries Team is dedicated to supporting those who have suffered from serious or life-changing injuries.  We specialise in helping individuals who have sustained serious and life-changing injuries arising from:-

  • Traumatic brain injury;
  • Spinal cord injury;
  • Amputations;
  • Burns;
  • Complex orthopaedic injuries;
  • Chronic pain.

Whether a car or van driver, motorcyclist, cyclist, pedestrian or passenger, we understand that an accident can have short and long term impacts on your physical and mental health and your financial stability.

At the outset our priority is you and your recovery.  We work hard to ensure that rehabilitation is put in place at the earliest possible time to ensure that your NHS treatment and care is supported to maximise your chances of recovery.

Making a claim for compensation following serious injury can be complex however, our specialist team are on hand to guide you through each step of the claims process.  We will take steps to assess your need for any aids or adaptations to your home or vehicle, care needs, medical treatment and any impact upon your employment prospects.  Where possible, we will look to secure an early interim payment of your compensation from the party at fault to help lessen the financial impact a serious injury can have on your finances.

Lysander Law’s Serious Injuries Team also have expertise of handling claims arising from a fatal accident.  Our team are on hand to help support you to obtain answers about the circumstances causing the loss of a loved one.  We have experience of handling claims arising from the death of a parent, partner or child and while each case is different, all are handled sensitively and with compassion.  Whilst we understand that no amount of compensation will ever be sufficient compensation for the loss of a loved one, we work hard to ensure that any funds recovered provide sufficient protection for those left behind following a bereavement.
