Brain injury law suit
Personal injury compensation law is a specialised business, but when it’s a brain injury law suit, there may be even more complexity added. This is because damage to the brain can have multiple far-reaching effects and have consequences, which are harder to assess than say, a broken ankle or a sprained shoulder. For this reason, before a claim is made, it is essential to seek expertise advice from a law firm such as Accident Advice Helpline, in the search for the right solicitor to handle your brain injury law suit.
Brain injuries have more consequences
Short or long-term incapacity for work means loss of income for breadwinner and family, from situations such as
- physical incapacity resulting from brain damage also means inability to work
- a general inability to lead a normal life
- a temporary or permanent need for supporting equipment and carers
- short or long term medical care
- specially adapted transport and equipment in the home
It can be difficult to assess these things and takes time. This is why when we hear about high profile brain injury law suits in which very large sums of damages have been awarded, it is often a panel of experts who have considered the case over a period of time. In most cases, complainants do not have to attend court, but there may be a requirement to attend independent medical examinations for assessment.
