The Child Brain Injury Trust’s Legal Support Service Provider for Northern Ireland is Thompsons.

Case Study:

We recently settled a claim for a child who had sustained a significant traumatic brain injury after being hit by a car. The settlement achieved provided the child with the long term assistance which she required in terms of specialist support and intervention and helped to make her life and that of her family more comfortable.
