This ensures that cases are progressed swiftly and without delay with clients receiving the maximum amount of compensation possible and where appropriate, interim payments of compensation to help to fund their complex care, treatment, therapy and equipment needs as well as to alleviate financial hardship.

Bolt Burdon Kemp fields a team that attracts praise for 'going the extra mile' and being 'consistently client focused'. The practice covers a broad range of catastrophic injury cases, and is sub-divided into specialist departments dedicated to one type of injury, such as spinal and child brain injury. Advising on the needs of ex-service personnel, such as mental health care within the Armed Forces, is another niche specialism offered by the Military team. Practice head Caroline Klage focuses on complex child brain injury cases, including cerebral palsy claims. Raquel Siganporia leads the spinal injury team, and regularly acts for those who, having a primary injury, then suffer a secondary complication indicative of negligence.
