Of all the injuries you could suffer in an accident, a head or brain injury must surely be among the worst. Some people are forever changed by an injury like this. Some develop epilepsy and need to take anticonvulsant medication for the rest of their lives. Others experience memory loss that may never come back. Others may be changed in terms of their character and outlook on life. You never know how it might affect a particular individual.
As you can imagine, there are situations where head and brain injury compensation has made a significant difference to the life of someone who has been hurt like this. Suffering injuries can be upsetting in any situation, but when someone is injured in a serious way because of something someone else was responsible for, it can be even harder to come to terms with it.
How much head and brain injury compensation might be paid?
Compensation will always be calculated individually, according to the specific circumstances that relate to a particular case and the person who has been injured. In many cases the injured person may no longer be able to work, and might need 24/7 care for the rest of their lives. If this is the case, these elements will be taken into account when assessing the amount of compensation that might be paid.
For this to happen, the third party must be found negligent in having caused the injury to have occurred in the first place. In many cases the third party will admit liability before the case ever reaches court. However in some cases a court case is reached in order to try and fight for the right amount of compensation to be paid to someone who has been left injured in this way.
