Brain Damage


Brain injury in some form or other is a common result of accidents where a head injury is involved. The Brain Injury Resource Foundation has reported statistics stating that each year, around 125,000 people are admitted to hospital in the UK to be treated for an injury affecting the brain in some way.

When the head receives a blow or jolt, for example in an accident, fall or assault, this can cause some degree of damage to the brain. This is known as an Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) or Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).

Even accidents which do not initially appear to be very serious can lead to bleeding in the brain, which if not recognised and treated quickly can lead to serious, even fatal, consequences. For that reason, if you or a loved one have been involved in an accident involving any sort of blow to the head, it is vital that you seek medical assistance as quickly as possible. Be particularly vigilant for any symptoms of memory loss, confusion, personality change, tiredness, an inability to concentrate, or nausea.

If you or a loved one have suffered a brain injury for which someone else was at fault, perhaps as a result of an accident or medical negligence, you are entitled to make a claim for compensation.

Brain damage compensation claims

Claims typically fall into one of these four categories:

  • Minor head injury
    The symptoms of your head injury fully resolve in a couple of weeks
  • Minor head injury with slight brain damage
    You recover from your injury but experience ongoing symptoms such as slight headaches
  • Ongoing brain damage
    This may affect your ability to function socially, your ability to work, your ability to concentrate, there might be a risk of epilepsy or it might cause you disability
  • Serious brain damage
    In the worst cases you might find your life expectancy reduced, you might be unable to communicate properly and you might be seriously disabled

Caring for someone who has been seriously affected by brain damage can also be a heavy burden on friends and family. However, rehabilitation can help people to regain some of the skills that may have been affected by their brain injury.

That’s why it’s imperative to get the right advice as soon as possible in order to claim the compensation you deserve. A successful financial settlement can help you and your family rebuild your lives, covering everything from medical and rehabilitation costs to loss of income due to inability to work.
