You should never underestimate the impact that life-changing head injuries can have on the injured party and their family. If you’ve suffered a head injury, not only will you have to focus on recovering from your injury but you may have mild or severe ongoing symptoms which can affect your quality of life and even your independence.
It’s not uncommon for those who have suffered life-changing head injuries to require long-term care, either in the home or at a care facility, and this can be expensive – where is the money going to come from? Claiming personal injury compensation can’t turn back the clock but it can go a long way to helping you and your family to cope with the aftermath of your accident, both emotionally and financially.

If they are, you could be eligible to claim personal injury compensation.
