What is a brain injury?

Brain injuries are usually caused by a major trauma or blow to the head. This could be as a result of a road traffic accident, a slip and fall accident, a fall from height, a workplace incident or as the result of a criminal injury such as assault. The severity and impact of a brain injuries can vary widely, from persistent headaches, loss of sensation, loss of sight, hearing and speech, loss of motor control to behaviour changes including depression and sudden mood changes.

Brain injuries can be very serious and affect people and their loved ones in different ways. They can also go undiagnosed for a long time before the impact really becomes apparent. Our experienced personal injury solicitors understand that no two injuries are the same, so we make sure that you are thoroughly assessed by one or more medical expert(s) to ensure you get the best possible support for your current and future prognosis.

As well as providing sensitive advice and support, our brain injury experts can put you in touch with a number of organisations that can help you with everything from rehabilitation to counselling and support for your family.

In some cases, it may be necessary to appoint a Deputy to manage the claim for the brain injury victim, if they are unable to manage their own affairs. Our personal injury lawyers will work alongside the Court of Protection to make sure the brain injury compensation claim is processed effectively with the Deputy.

No win, no fee

Many brain injury claims we support are handled on a no win no fee basis, which means:

  • If you win your case your opponent will pay the majority of your legal costs. Any legal costs not paid by your opponent and the lawyer’s success fee will be deducted from the compensation that you receive.
  • If you lose your case, you will not have to pay any legal costs unless we advise you otherwise.

How long do I have to make a brain injury claim?

You usually have up to three years from the date of the accident or knowing about your injury to start a brain injury claim. There are some exceptions, such as if you no longer have the capacity to manage your affairs, and we will advise you about these when we speak. We recommend that you contact us as soon as possible, so our personal injury lawyers can explain the process of claiming compensation, start your claim and help you access any other support you need.

How much compensation could I receive?

Every brain injury is different and so is its impact on you or your loved one. That’s why it is important to get expert advice from qualified specialist lawyers who really understand the unique nature of each personal injury claim and who are experienced in working with medical professionals to truly understand the impact of your injuries and how these may affect you in the long term.

The amount you can claim will depend on a number of factors, including the severity of your injury, any financial losses you have suffered or will suffer in the future, and any changes to your lifestyle that you have to make as a result of your injuries. Whatever the injury, our specialist personal injury lawyers will ensure that you get the compensation and support you are entitled to.
