Multiple injuries are caused by serious accidents and can include orthopaedic injuries, such as broken bones, along with head, brain and spinal cord injuries.
Unfortunately, these injuries can have a devastating impact on families. Multiple traumas may result in ongoing mobility problems as well as severe chronic pain for the injured person, which can have a lasting impact on everyday life.
People who have sustained serious multiple injuries often require care and may be reliant on family and friends. As well as the physical complications associated with multiple injuries, the loss of independence can also have an impact on a person’s emotional wellbeing too.
Often referred to as multiple trauma or ‘polytrauma’, this injury type refers to a person who has sustained multiple traumatic injuries (such as a traumatic brain injury and broken bones) from a single incident.
These types of injuries are most commonly associated with road traffic collisions and the armed forces. Common multiple injuries include:
Even though we provide specialist ongoing support, our services are entirely no win no fee. We understand the financial difficulties involved after multiple injuries, which is why we only charge if your claim is successful.
If you are considering starting a claim, you can speak to us free of charge before making a decision. We are happy to discuss your circumstances with no pressure to sign up. Our team of expert solicitors visit clients around the country, and we can meet you at your home, or in a comfortable neutral location if you prefer.

Our solicitors take a different approach. We will listen and understand the needs of the injured person and their family. Our focus is not just on the compensation claim, but also on helping clients access early funding for treatment, support and comprehensive rehabilitation, as well as providing excellent legal advice and guidance every step of the way.
We pull together with you and your family to support you with expert legal advice, financial assistance including benefits advice and emergency funds, physical help with early intervention for treatment, rehabilitation and therapies, as well as emotional and psychological support for the whole family.
All of your team will, of course, be experts and specialists in serious injury but there’s much more to what we do.
Our Client First Service means that our solicitors work with fewer clients than is typical in the legal sector, ensuring they have the time to dedicate to working collaboratively with you and your family.
We work intensively and proactively on your claim, resulting in full compensation for your injuries without unnecessary delay.
Lack of funding should not get in the way of you receiving treatment and support when you need it. This is why we have an emergency fund to help plug any gaps in your support straight away.
Examples of our emergency fund in action include paying for travel expenses for your family to visit in hospital, funding additional treatment and therapy to assist your recovery and addressing any immediate financial concerns you may have.
We can also help with benefits applications and provide support with appeal processes and signposting to charities and other emergency funding.
We have Client Support Managers with expert clinical experience involved as part of your team from the start. They are able to provide well-informed guidance on available support and treatment options, helping you and your family to make the right decisions for you, as well as plugging any gaps in the information provided by your treating team.
Your Client Support Manager can also liaise with your treating team to help with discharge to suitable accommodation, including arranging and facilitating care packages and sourcing aids and equipment to improve your function and independence.
We work in collaboration with health and social care, as well as charities to ensure we all pull together to enable you to achieve your best possible outcome and lead a fulfilled life.
Sustaining a serious injury inevitably has a significant psychological, as well as a physical impact on you and your family.
We understand that it is important that all psychological and emotional factors are given as much attention as any physical injury to achieve the best outcomes.
That is why we listen carefully to you and your family to identify any possible underlying psychological barriers and emotional needs and ensure they are addressed as part of your support plan.
