Head injury and brain injury compensation following an accident

The brain is fragile organ and even though it is protected by the skull, it can easily be damaged by a blow or jar to the head. Most cases of head injury are mild and people make a full recovery. In more serious cases though, a head injury or brain injury can have a dramatic effect on someone’s life.

The brain is the control centre for everything we think, feel and do. Damage to the brain can cause difficulties - sometimes minor, sometimes profound and devastating - affecting a person's ability to manage their life.

Head injuries and brain injuries can occur in any number of accidents, including:

  • Car accident

  • Motorcycle accident

  • Trip or fall

  • Work accident

  • Building site accident

  • Sports accident

  • Criminal assault or violent act

  • Holiday accident

  • Accident in a public place

Closed head injury
Closed head injuries occur when the head stops suddenly while in motion and the brain hits the inside of the skull causing damage. Even when there is no apparent external damage to the head, a closed head injury can result in serious brain damage, as brain swelling can result in an increase in intracranial pressure, which in turn causes further compression injury.

Open head injury
Open head injuries occur when the impact of an object on the head, actually penetrates the skull. This can result in a fractured skull, which may or may not include damage to the brain.
