Brain damage injury


A brain damage injury can be one of the most worrying types of injury that you can suffer. Accident Advice Helpline deals with calls from people who have suffered a brain damage injury every week and understand what a devastating experience it can be.

Suffering a brain damage injury at work

One of the most common ways in which people suffer a brain damage injury at work is to fall from a height and this is especially common on construction sites. It can happen when construction workers attempt to carry out work at a height using a ladder when an extendable platform or scaffolding should be used. Ladders can slip to one side or tip backwards and the worker can fall many metres onto the ground.

Under these circumstances it may be possible to start a claim for compensation from the employer because they should have provided a safe system of work. Accident Advice Helpline have personal injury lawyers who are experts in this type of claim and will help the injured worker to show that the employer was at fault for the accident and then negotiate a sum in compensation.

What is so bad about a brain injury?

Brain injuries are very difficult to assess and treat. The brain is encased inside a hard shell (the skull) and so, when it swells, the soft brain tissues can be pressed against the skull and become damaged. When the brain bleeds, there is really nowhere for the blood to escape to and so it builds up inside the skull and exerts pressure on the brain tissue.

When brain tissue gets damaged it cannot always repair itself and so some types of brain damage injury can be permanent. However, it is always very difficult for doctors to predict how a brain damage injury will turn out because everyone is different. They can only give an estimate of what will happen.

How much money should you get for a brain injury?

Some brain injuries are more serious than others and the more serious ones will result in higher levels of compensation. However, it is not possible for Accident Advice Helpline lawyers to predict exactly how much you will get until your claim is finalised. Also, some cases take longer than others to resolve and brain damage injury cases can be quite complex.

Your Accident Advice Helpline lawyer will be working hard to make sure that you get the best level of compensation and will try to resolve your case as quickly as they can for you. During this time you will not be asked for any upfront legal costs because your case will be handled on a no win no fee* basis.
