Concussion compensation

Feefo logo
Concussion compensation | CFG Law

We can help you to gain access to medical specialists at the earliest possible convenience, to put in place a treatment plan through securing concussion compensation and help you to make the best possible recovery.

Concussion is classed as a ‘mild’ traumatic brain injury and is a disturbance of brain function as a result of an impact to the head or shaking of the head. It can cause both short-term and long-term problems.

While most people recover from their symptoms within a few weeks, some can experience ongoing issues, which is often referred to as post-concussion syndrome.

Diagnosing concussion

Often concussion will not show up on a brain scan, but that does not mean symptoms will be any less serious. If you are experiencing ongoing symptoms, it’s important to consult with medical specialists who will be able to advise you on your injuries.

We understand the effects these types of injuries can have on families and the difficulties faced by people trying to access specialist advice following a concussion.

Concussion is common in road accidents, falls, sporting accidents and injuries caused by a criminal assault. However your concussion has been caused, you should visit your GP or your local A&E Department to make sure that there is not a more serious underlying injury.

Can I claim compensation for a concussion?

If your injury was caused by another party, then you may be able to claim concussion compensation. If you are unsure or would just like some advice on if you do have a case to claim compensation, then why not speak to one of our solicitors?

We offer FREE no obligation advice, allowing you to make the best, most informed decision on whether you can proceed with a claim.

Why we're different

We take a different approach to criminal injury compensation claims and take the time to listen to our clients and truly get to know them and their families. This helps us to understand what's important to you and how we can support you. Our focus is not just on the CICA application and gathering the evidence to support your criminal injury claim, but also on helping you to access the treatment, support and rehabilitation you need to achieve your best outcome.

As well as legal advice, we focus on providing the financial, physical and emotional support you and your family need.

scaleLegal

To get the best out of working with you and your family and providing the best possible support, our solicitors work with fewer clients than is typical in the legal sector. As well as full support for you, this also means that we can work proactively and intensively on your claim, meaning you receive full compensation without any unnecessary delays.

financeFinancial

We have an emergency fund that can be used to help to plug any gaps there may be in the support you're receiving immediately. We can also assist you with benefits applications and support you with appeal processes. We also have links to charities and other organisations who may be able to help with emergency funding.

stick-figurePhysical

We have Client Support Managers who will be part of your team, who have expert clinical and social work experience. They can help you to understand the different treatment and support options, as well as assist with discharge planning, care packages and any aids and equipment you may need.

As part of your claim, we will also look at any emotional needs you and your family may have as a result of your accident, to ensure these are addressed to provide all-round support.
