At Hugh James we’re proud to say that we do things differently. We may be a top 100 UK law firm, but we’ve kept a personal, down-to-earth approach that’s based on helping our clients achieve the best results.

National Leading Brain Injury Solicitors

We understand that after a brain injury it can feel like your world has been turned upside down. We can offer first class legal advice and also help you gain access to an emergency fund, early specialist neuro-rehabilitation and interim payments which will help to ease financial stress you might be experiencing as a result of not being able to work.

If you have suffered a brain injury and it wasn’t your fault, it is important that you seek specialist legal advice as soon as possible. We are happy to meet with you wherever is convenient to you, whether it is at hospital, in a rehabilitation hospital or at your home (anywhere in the UK) for a free, no obligation consultation.

At Hugh James, our brain injury solicitors and multi-disciplinary team has more than 30 years of experience in managing brain injury claims and we are often instructed by clients who have found their original solicitors to be unsatisfactory. You can be confident that you’re instructing experienced specialist solicitors who care about not only about achieving the highest possible settlement for you, but also accessing specialist neuro-rehabilitation to enable you to make the best possible recovery. You’re guaranteed to be represented by a Partner (or Consultant Partner) throughout the whole of your claim.

We are recognised as leaders in the Legal 500 and Chambers and Partners and are listed in the Headway, Child Brain Injury Trust, Brain Injury Group, and UKABIF as approved solicitors.
