Brain Injury Compensation Claims
Brain injuries can cause devastating effects, not only on your family life, but also on your working life and day to day activities, as well as on the lives of your close family and friends. They can lead to both physical and psychological problems.
If you suffer a brain injury through no fault of your own, you and your family deserve compensation for your injuries. But in the immediate aftermath of the injury, you need to be assured you are receiving the best possible treatment and ongoing support.
Because of the severity of such injuries, it is crucial that you speak to a specialist brain injury claims lawyer. An experienced lawyer will be able to help not only with your claim, but they should ensure early treatment and support services to get you back on the road to recovery as soon as possible.

Symptoms of brain injuries
If you have been in an accident and are experiencing the following symptoms, you may have suffered a brain injury:
- Seizures or fitting
- Visual problems
- Bleeding or discharge from the ears or nose
- Limb paralysis or weakness – unable to use your arms/legs
- Problems hearing, speaking or being understood
- Slower speed of thought
- Changes in sense of smell, taste or touch
- Memory loss
- Emotional instability – mood swings, depression
- Difficulty with co-ordination and balance
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it is very important that you seek medical help as soon as possible.
The severity of a brain injury will be considered by medical experts and are usually classified into the categories of minor, moderate or severe. The complexity of the brain and the effect of such injuries to the brain, mean that the severity of the symptoms and recovery can vary dramatically between different people.
Brain injuries can leave you with physical injuries, as well as cognitive injuries, such as problems with memory, a low attention span and changes to personality. These injuries and changes can have just as big an impact, if not more than physical ones. You deserve to get the best form of treatment for these injuries and the compensation you deserve.
Brain injury compensation – What can I claim for?
You can not only claim compensation for the pain and suffering you have experienced as a result of your injuries, but also for any losses you have incurred as a result of your accident. This can include loss of pay due to absence from work, as well as any future earnings if you are not able to return to work.
Our aim is not only to meet your immediate needs, but ensure all future needs, including rehabilitation programmes, modifications to your home as required or other support aids and any ongoing care is covered by your brain injury claim.
By contacting us you will also benefit from:
- A full investigation into who is to blame for your accident.
