These claims often involve unusual accident scenarios and large volumes of disclosure, it is also not uncommon for these claims to feature Claimants with complex and striking medical histories. Due to the sometimes subjective nature of the Claimant's reported symptoms our specialist mTBI and closed brain injury lawyers use every available tool to build a case specific Claimant profile and fact check each case. Our lawyers are assisted by a team with diverse expertise ranging from a background in care, engineering, medicine, data analytics and counter fraud.
We understand it is crucial to accurately and contextually assess the Claimant's cognitive abilities in order to cut through, sometimes sensationalist and convoluted, particulars of claim and schedules of loss. We adopt an interdisciplinary approach to defeat and/or substantially reduce these claims by creating focused and case specific teams of both medico-legal and non-medical experts in order to ensure:
1. The court is presented with an accurate diagnosis of the Claimant's alleged symptoms backed up by relevant and reliable literature.
2. The Claimant's potential for recovery and long term ability to function as a member of society is correctly presented to the court in context.
