About head & brain injury

No matter how insignificant head injury may seem at first, it is vital to seek medical help. If there is a risk of internal damage (brain injury), it is best to be examined and diagnosed by a specialist.

Common causes of brain injury are road traffic accidents, assaults, falls and accidents in the workplace. No matter how mild or severe your (or your family member’s) brain injury might be, you should seek legal advice from a reliable and professional company. If the accident was not your fault (or only partially due to your own negligence), we may be able to help you claim compensation.

The three main types of brain injury are:

Concussion: This is the most common and minor type of head injury the effects of which are usually temporary but may include headaches and problems with concentration, memory, balance and coordination.
They are usually caused by a blow to the head, but can also be a result of violent shaking of the head or upper body. Some people may not even realise they have had a concussion. Therefore, it is important to monitor even the slightest symptoms. When ignored, they can lead to a more severe brain injury.

Open: This is any damage which fractures and penetrates the skull. It does not necessarily include a brain injury, but may cause bleeding within the brain’s tissues or pressing the skull bones into brain tissue. It is often a result of the head being subject to strong impact (e.g. a blow)

Closed: This type of brain injury does not break open your skull or penetrate the brain tissue, but can still cause bruising or swelling of the brain.
In some cases, a brain injury can lead to legal incapacity, where the person suffering from the injury might need assistance in handling official (e.g. financial) matters. For obvious reasons, in this case an expert advice is needed.

How to claim compensation for a head or brain injury?

First, we need to know some basic details about your accident (such as when, where and how it happened) and the injuries you have suffered. We will also ask you about medical treatment you have already received.

One of our solicitors specialising in head & brain injury claims will review your case based on the details received from you, in order to assess how successful your claim is likely to be.

If you require further medical treatment and/or rehabilitation, it is vital to contact a solicitor as soon as possible, so that the best possible care (e.g. private surgery or rehabilitation) could be arranged at the earliest opportunity.
