Head Injury Claims

We have a very specialist team of solicitors with many years’ experience supporting those who have been affected by a serious head injury.

Making a compensation claim for head injury is very different from making a claim for other types of personal injury. Head injuries can be complex and it is vital that you instruct a solicitor who has the expertise to handle these claims.

Coping with the aftermath of a serious head injury can be an extremely difficult time for all the family and therefore your solicitor should be compassionate, sympathetic and professional at all times.

Types of Head Injury Claims:

1.4 million people attend hospital each year in the UK suffering from a head injury. Around 80% of head injuries are categorised as mild and the recovery time is fairly quick, however, this may result in significant impact on the injured person’s life. Head injuries are varied, but some of the more common injuries include:

Concussion

A concussion is classified as a mild traumatic brain injury but can cause both short and long-term problems.  A concussion is one of the most common forms of head injuries and many people will experience this within their lifetime.

If you have suffered from a concussion and are seeking assistance on making a claim, click the link below to find more information on how we can help you claim the compensation you deserve, as well as help fund support and treatment.

Brain Injury

Brain Injuries can devastate peoples’ everyday lives. Even small knocks to the head can result in damage to the brain. Brain injuries are classified by the severity of the injury, from mild, moderate to severe.

After a Brain Injury, it's essential to seek the advice of a brain injury solicitor who understands the importance of early assessment, rehabilitation and support.

Minor head injury

In most cases, minor head injuries do not result in permanent damage and generally people will make a full recovery relatively quickly.  The majority of people will be back to normal 3-4 months after the accident.  However, different people recover in different ways and some people may not recover as well or as quickly as expected.

The most common causes of head injuries are people falling and banging their head, violent attacks and assaults, sporting accidents or being involved in a road traffic accident.

The expectation is that people will make a quick recovery, but a small but significant proportion do not and have continuing symptoms.  To those, a mild head injury can be anything but a mild experience.

In our experience, people who continue to suffer ongoing symptoms after being advised they have a mild head injury can have difficulty in accessing the correct treatment and support.  We can help you access the specialist medical advice and support that you and your family need.

Diagnosing minor head injuries

We understand that CT scans are not a reliable test of whether or not a person has suffered a brain injury.  If you have a clear scan but have not recovered quickly then we would recommend that you seek specialist advice.

If you have been involved in an accident which has resulted in a head injury, you should speak to a reputable solicitor with specialist expertise in this area.
