Understanding brain injury

Brain injuries refer to damage or trauma to the brain. Mild cases such as concussion can result in temporary issues, while severe cases can lead to long term disabilities and cognitive impairment.

A brain injury can occur in various ways, though some examples of brain injuries that could involve a compensation claim include:

  • a car crash, motorcycle accident or other road traffic incident
  • accident at work including poisoning
  • a violent attack 
  • sports injury
  • an incident involving an animal
  • poor care during birth or pregnancy
  • poor care of a stroke or similar medical negligence that leads to long term brain injury

A brain injury can impact the survivor in many ways, many of which are not visible to the naked eye. Following a brain injury, someone may find it difficult to concentrate, experience problems with co-ordination or speech, develop behavioural issues or suffer impaired mental capacity. Any of these can leave you needing extra support in life and that’s something a claim can help with.

We’re here to help. You can call us on 0800 0448488 or email or request a call back

Your rights and eligibility

If someone else was even partly responsible for your injury or that of your loved one then you are likely to have a right to compensation. It’s vital to speak to a specialist solicitor to understand if you have a valid claim. Compensation can greatly improve your quality of life after a brain injury and without it your future or that of your loved one may be more negatively affected  than is necessary.

Although it may offer some comfort to get accountability for what happened, ultimately brain injury claims are about future proofing and ensuring you have the financial support necessary to cope with the situation you are in.

Brain injury compensation can be particularly complex due to the uncertainty of future requirements, particularly for brain injuries to children due to their brains still developing. This means it can take years for you to find out exactly how a child has been affected, especially with younger children. Because of this, there are longer timescales in which to start a claim in the case of a child.

How can compensation help? 

Paying for the care and therapy  needs of someone who has suffered a brain injury is a huge worry. That’s why pursuing a claim for  compensation is vitally important for families and why it is better to work with a specialist solicitor who understands the likely needs and costs you may face in the future.

We work with families to consider current and future needs to ensure our compensation claims are comprehensive and seek to gain the fullest settlement possible.

Brain injuries vary so greatly that the level of support required for someone who has one varies hugely too.

In cases of severe and complex brain injury things to consider may include:

  • long term caring needs 
  • needs relating to personal independence 
  • benefits advice
  • loss of earnings
  • communication and mobility aids
  • psychological and physical treatments
  • house adaptations / purchase of adapted home
  • re-enablement services for the survivor to be able to access activities and hobbies they enjoyed before their injury 
  • support for any dependants the survivor may not be able to care for at the same level as before their injury
