Effects and symptoms of brain injury
Matthew Tuff | 05.03.2019
I joined Moore Blatch in 2019 as a paralegal working in the Major Trauma team, working closely with Trevor Sterling, Partner for Medical Relations and Head of the Major Trauma team.
My role involves supporting the Major Trauma service in major trauma (personal injury) liability investigations, as well as providing health pathway support, general law advice and pursuing insurance compensation claims for major trauma patients/clients.
Our clients have typically suffered a major trauma, this can range from brain injury to routine muscular-skeletal injuries which can be an extremely difficult and distressing time for clients and their families. I focus on supporting rehabilitation with early intervention in order to improve the outcomes, particularly by securing insurance payments and ensuring use of the Rehabilitation Code which facilitates the best possible treatment to assist in their recovery, as well as securing them compensation for injuries suffered and financial losses.
Within the Major Trauma service, I offer advice around general law to clients to ensure I can support them with any issues that may arise and support them along the health pathway. This assists in alleviating anxieties allowing them to focus on their recovery.
I work closely supporting the Mary Seacole Trust and Headway with Eman Hassan and Trevor Sterling.
I enjoy playing football in my spare time and am an avid Newcastle United supporter.
