Brain injury and head injury compensation following an accident
If you or someone you know has suffered a brain injury or head injury in a non-fault accident you can and should make a claim for personal injury compensation. Our specialist brain injury solicitors can help you claim financial compensation for your current and future needs and also ensure your welfare is protected now and in the future, by arranging rehabilitation and treatment services, modifications to your home or re-housing and financial planning.
Brain injury diagnosis
The two main methods used to diagnose brain damage, are head scans and psychometric testing, which are used to examine various different aspects of the brain’s performance. People will be affected in different ways following a brain injury, depending on the severity of the injury.
Minor head injury
A minor head or brain injury seldom results in permanent damage. Short-term problems may include headaches, dizziness, sensitivity to noise or light, ringing in the ears, blurred or double vision, restlessness, insomnia, reduced concentration, poor memory, tiredness, irritability, anxiety and depression. A head injury may also cause emotional difficulties or issues in executive functioning.
Moderate head injury or severe head injury
More serious head or brain injuries may result in permanent problems including difficulty with attention, tiredness, learning, memory, solving problems and planning. Emotions may also be affected leading to deterioration in the ability to hold down a job and maintain close relationships.
Types of brain injury
There are a number of different injuries that can be sustained to the brain:
- Minor brain injury
- Moderate brain injury
- Severe brain injury
- Secondary brain injury
- Acquired brain injury (ABI)
- Non-traumatic brain injury
- Post-traumatic Amnesia (PTA)
- Persistent vegetative state
