Accredited Brain Injury Specialists

Brain injury specialist

APIL has a specialist accreditation for brain injury claims. If an APIL member’s profile displays the specialist accreditation logo it shows that they have achieved a particularly high standard of expertise and competence and that they actually specialise in this area of the law. However, due to the specialised nature of this accreditation we may not have a member with specialist accreditation in your area.

Only accredited members appear on the public search facility. If an APIL member's profile does not display the brain injury specialist logo they will still be accredited at one of the general levels offered by APIL, having satisfied APIL's specific and extensive criteria by providing evidence of their competency and experience in handling personal injury claims.

  (what is a Litigator?)

Traumatic head and brain injuries can result from any number of types of accidents, including transport related accidents, accidents at work or caused by defective products for example. If that accident has been caused by someone’s or a company’s negligence, then it may be possible to claim compensation for the injury and the cost of future care.

Serious injuries can have a life-long impact and claims often require specialist knowledge, we therefore recommend using one of the specialist head and brain injury lawyers listed on this page.
