    Brain Injury Compensation


    Brain injury compensation claims

    If you or a loved one has been involved in an accident which has caused brain injury and it is due to the negligence of someone else, then you may be entitled to claim brain injury compensation.

    An injury to the brain can be terrifying and have serious consequences.

    The Brain

    The brain is the most important organ in the body. It is the control centre for the whole body.

    Different areas of the brain are responsible for controlling different activities. For example, the frontal lobes are behind the forehead and control thought, problem solving and determine emotions and personality. However, the brain functions as a whole unit.

    The brain controls limb movements, coordinates balance and also controls all the vital functions of the body such as breathing, blood pressure and digestion.
