How can brain and head injuries occur?
There are many ways that a head or brain injury can occur. For the injuries to be long-term, it is likely that the cause will be a serious one, often involving significant force.
Compared with physical injuries, brain injuries can be much harder to detect and their full effects can take time to emerge after the incident. For example, brain injuries can occur in very subtle ways if the brain moves within the skull, such as during extreme acceleration or deceleration, or if the head moves in a twisting motion.
The types of incident that might cause a brain injury include:
- A serious road traffic accident
- A workplace accident such as an impact from falling items
- A fall from height
- Medical negligence or a significant medical misdiagnosis
- A criminal act such as an assault or grievous bodily harm
These are just some of the more common examples of how a brain or head injury can occur. Given the serious nature of these causes, it’s likely that a head or brain injury will be accompanied by other serious injuries such as broken bones or even amputation of limbs.
Whatever the full extent of the injuries may be, we can provide the specialist legal advice you need to plan for life after the injury and to claim the right level of compensation for your future needs.
How much compensation might I receive?
The amount of compensation you receive very much depends on your specific circumstances. That’s why we recommend that you get in touch with us promptly so that we can discuss the details of your accident with you.
You may be able to claim for the following if they are a direct result of your injuries:
- Compensation for distress and upheaval
- Loss of earnings and financial losses incurred
- Medical costs, prescription fees, care and rehabilitation costs
- Damage to your property
- Travel expenses incurred
For many personal injury claims, early treatment can be crucial to recovery and this is especially true of brain injury claims. We look to secure interim payments wherever possible to provide the funds to get the prompt, specialist care you need.
Do I have a valid claim for compensation?
If you can answer yes to all three of the following questions, we recommend that you contact us to discuss your circumstances further:
- Was the incident within the last three years (or two years if it was a criminal act)?
- Was someone else to blame for the incident?
- Were you injured as a result of the incident?
Answering ‘yes’ to all three doesn’t mean that a successful claim is certain. However, these questions are key to the claims process. Answering yes to all three does indicate that you have a greater chance of being entitled to claim. Getting prompt, specialist legal advice could be beneficial.
Because of the time limits, it’s important that you contact us promptly so that we can start the process for you.
