What is the process of making a serious brain injury claim with Stephensons?

Stephensons will initially take full details of your accident and injury and then submit your claim to the other side. If the other side accepts responsibility for the accident, Stephensons will proceed to obtain medical evidence, along with evidence in support of your financial losses, with a view to valuing your traumatic brain injury claim and attempting to reach settlement.

If liability for the accident is disputed, Stephensons will investigate the reasons for this and, if we are satisfied that the denial of liability can be overcome, we will proceed to gather all of the evidence required to proceed to a court hearing, if settlement cannot be reached. However, it is often still possible to reach settlement even when liability for the accident is denied. Stephensons are not afraid to tackle these difficult brain injury compensation claims.
