Head injuries can range from minor injuries such as concussion to life-threatening or fatal injuries such as a brain injury. Whether you’ve suffered a head injury and pain after a car accident or an accident at work, you could find you’re entitled to make a claim for compensation if you think somebody else was responsible for your accident. Over the years, Accident Advice Helpline has helped hundreds of people claim people for accidents that were somebody else’s fault, and you could be next in line.
A head injury is usually the result of a blow to the head, and the resulting symptoms can make it difficult to work or take part in your usual activities. You deserve to be compensated if somebody else’s negligence has led to your accident and we can help you.
Will your claim for head injury and pain be successful?
When you make a claim for compensation for head injury and pain, your personal injury lawyer will normally liaise with medical professionals to find out more about your injuries and how they have affected your life. Serious, life-changing injuries could mean you’ll be awarded a substantial sum of compensation which could compensate you for loss of earnings both now and in the future, if you’re unable to return to work, for example.
Even if you have suffered a minor head injury and needed a few weeks off work, you could still find yourself eligible to make a claim for compensation and you could be surprised at the amount you could receive. You can take the 30-second test on our website right now for an idea of how much compensation could be waiting for you if your claim is successful.
