Did you know that each year in the UK, around 125,000 people sustain a brain injury which leads to hospital admission? That’s a significant number of people, many of whom could be eligible to claim personal injury compensation after an accident which has caused life-changing brain injuries.
Brain injuries cause not only a range of different physical and mental effects for the personal affected, but they also affect their family and loved ones too, who are often left to cope with a change in lifestyle and financial issues in the aftermath of their accident.
If you or someone you love has suffered life-changing brain injuries, choose Accident Advice Helpline as your personal injury lawyers. Our team has 15 years’ experience specialising in personal injury claims and we have helped many customers successfully claim substantial personal injury settlements after suffering serious brain injuries.
The effects of brain injury
A brain injury will undoubtedly affect your life, and whether yours was caused by a road accident, assault, accident at work or accident in a public place, you could suffer from different effects depending on the severity of your injuries.
Brain injuries can lead to cognitive difficulties including difficulty concentrating and memory loss, behavioural changes, permanent brain damage and even physical disability, any of which could make leading a ‘normal’ life difficult or impossible.
As the victim’s family, the last thing you need after an accident is additional stress. But a change in lifestyle may mean you need to make modifications to your home or pay for nursing care for your injured partner or child.
Making a personal injury claim won’t fully compensate you for what has happened, but it can help you to deal with the financial strain by covering the cost of medical treatment or care in the future. Accident Advice Helpline’s personal injury lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee basis, so anyone can afford to claim with us.
How much compensation will you receive?
It’s impossible to give you an exact figure, but you could get an idea of what you could be entitled to by taking the 30-second test on our website right now. Brain injury compensation payouts are normally substantially higher than the average personal injury compensation claim, and will take into account any future costs such as disability aids and nursing care, modifications to your home and any future lost earnings. Why not call Accident Advice Helpline right now on 0800 689 0500 and get the ball rolling on your claim.
