Every 90 seconds, someone in the UK is admitted to hospital with a brain injury, but specialist support is not always available. We actively campaign alongside Headway, the brain injury association, to raise awareness of traumatic brain injury, promote understanding of the impact it has on individuals and families, and improve safety policies to reduce the incidence of traumatic brain injuries.
Thompsons’ expertise in handing brain injury compensation cases is recognised in Headway’s Head Injury Solicitors Directory. Our specialist solicitors follow the Headway Personal Injury Lawyers Code of Conduct and bring the full weight of their significant expertise to the fore for each and every brain injury survivor who entrusts us with their claim.
Headway offers information, services and support to survivors of brain injury, their carers and families, as well as healthcare professionals, all with the aim of improving life after traumatic or acquired brain injury.
Headway offers a variety of frontline services to support people affected by brain injuries. It has a Freephone help and advice line (0808 800 2244) and publishes comprehensive information about all aspects of brain injury, designed to promote understanding of the effects of brain injury and advice on how to manage them, on Headway's website.
Local groups and branches – found across the UK – provide support to individuals and families with social, physical and cognitive rehabilitation. Many members of our specialist brain injury team are proud to volunteer their time and expertise in support of Headway groups, acting as Secretaries, Treasurers and Committee Members.
