Charles Organ suffered a brain injury through medical negligence. His wife Sue is co founder of B.I.G (the brain injury support group).
We all know that life can bring sudden, unexpected twists but most of the time we are able to adjust to difficult events as they happen. However, for someone affected by a serious brain injury, life can change instantly and it is never the same again.
Charles was a fit, sports-mad, successful businessman who dreamed of retiring to France with his wife Sue. One fateful day, he fell during a charity bike ride, injuring his head. Charles was on the road to recovery in hospital, when he suffered a massive brain bleed, leaving him with significant cognitive and physical disabilities.
Doctors warned he would never walk, talk, eat or drink independently again. Sue got in touch with specialist serious injury firm, Novum Law to investigate his accident. However, Novum Law quickly realised that it was mistakes made in Charles’ medical treatment that had resulted in his profound brain injury.
Novum Law’s experience of dealing with complex medical negligence cases meant he was able to secure compensation for Charles, ensuring he will have access to the specialist care and support he will need for the rest of his life.
Living with a brain injury can be difficult for everyone. But thanks to Novum Law’s expertise, Charles and Sue have been able to move into specially adapted accommodation with a hydrotherapy pool and, with help from a dedicated support team, can live as full a life as possible, together.
