Head & Brain Injuries Abroad | Irwin Mitchell

We Offer Compassionate Advice If You’ve Suffered A Head Injury Abroad

Head and brain injuries have a dramatic and life-changing impact for the person injured and for those who are close to them. We passionately believe that our clients deserve the best possible medical care, rehabilitation and specialised support after suffering a head injury.

Distress can be even greater when the incident occurred abroad, such as on holiday. Victims and their loved ones often do not know where to turn for help and support when they, or a loved one, suffers from a head or brain injury abroad.

At Irwin Mitchell we fight fearlessly to achieve the best outcome for your head injury claim. We’re renowned for our understanding of the issues affecting you and your family following a head or brain injury abroad. We know what positive action to take to make a difference.

Our lawyers offer the highest level of professionalism and expertise, combined with dedication and sensitivity.

Above all, we put you first.

Handling Claims For Head And Brain Injuries Abroad With Expertise And Sensitivity

After a head injury, symptoms such as poor concentration, personality changes, memory loss, fatigue and many others can severely affect everyday activities. Head injuries can even lead to severe physical disability and permanent brain damage.

Individuals who suffer from head and brain injuries – whether at home or abroad - are entitled to every opportunity to improve their quality of life. They also deserve the best possible medical care, rehabilitation and specialised support. We combine our highly rated legal service to secure maximum compensation with a thorough rehabilitation programme to help improve your quality of life.

Irwin Mitchell can assist with all aspects of your head or brain injury abroad claim. Many people who suffer head injuries remain disabled for years after their accident. That is why we go beyond compensation claims and place emphasis on care and rehabilitation where appropriate. We help our clients to access ongoing rehabilitation services, therapy, suitable housing, transport, aids and equipment and care support either whilst they are abroad or on their return to the UK.

If you have suffered from a head or brain injury abroad as a result of an accident that wasn’t your fault, Irwin Mitchell could help you with a head injury claim to get the compensation that you need and deserve. Head injuries can occur due to many reasons including:-

  • Violent assault
  • Road traffic collisions
  • Workplace accidents
  • Falls
  • Incidents during recreational and leisure activities

We consider every aspect of your head injury compensation claim, assisting with your rehabilitation, return to everyday life and, where appropriate, education and work opportunities, to help overcome the effect of your injuries. We have a leading national team of specialist solicitors who can guide you through the head injury claims process and support your claim for compensation.

The service that we provide is about much more than securing head injury compensation after your accident. As well as financial security, we know that making arrangements for your care and support is key to your future wellbeing, and this is central to what we will do.

Irwin Mitchell is the UK's leading firm of solicitors when it comes to overseas accident claims and our team of specialist solicitors can provide you with expert advice and guidance on your claim.

It may be possible, depending on the circumstances of your accident, to bring a case against the tour operator in the UK if you suffered such an injury whilst on holiday. It may also be possible to bring a claim in the UK if you have been involved in an accident abroad.

In other cases, your head injury claim may be made abroad, for example against the individual or company whose actions (or negligence) resulted in your injury.
