Interim Payments

Brain injuries can cause severe financial difficulties; it is therefore important for your solicitor to obtain some financial redress for you as soon as possible, so that you can continue with your daily life. At Longdens, we can do this for you whilst the claim is still in progress. Once we have obtained an admission of liability, we can arrange interim payments on your behalf.

As the case continues, this money can be used to pay for general living expenses, private medical treatments, rehabilitation support and equipment, adapted accommodation, loss of earnings and/or to set up a care regime.
