Paul Brown 

Paul is a senior brain injury and serious injury solicitor based in the Newcastle Office of Burnetts Solicitors. He has over 17 years’ experience of pursuing compensation claims for brain injury survivors and their families following traumatic brain injury. He is a member of Burnetts Solicitors award winning Serious Injuries team, specialising in cases involving catastrophic injuries, such as traumatic brain injuries, amputations, and spinal cord injuries. This has given him an insight into the needs of not only brain injury survivors themselves but also their families and carers. Paul is also Secretary of the UK Acquired Brain Injury Forum (see ) and also the Secretary for the Northern Acquired Brain Injury Forum (NABIF) which is a local ABI forum which covers the North East of England and Cumbria. Part of the role of these organisations is to highlight the needs of brain injury survivors and their families and carers and lobby on their behalf.”
