What Can Cause Head and Brain Injuries?

The amount of compensation you receive depends on the nature and severity of your accident. For expert legal advice and to discuss your head or brain injury claim, contact us, and we will offer you the best support and care possible.

 

What is the time limit to make your head and brain injury claim?

A person usually has three years after the injury occurred to make their head and brain injury claim. This allows you sufficient time to file your claim and seek professional advice.

However, there are some exceptions to this rule. This applies in cases which include:

  • Children

If the injured person is under 18, the three-year period begins when they turn 18. This means they can make their claim before they turn 21.

  • Mental capacity

In case the injured person lacks the mental capacity to make a claim, there is no time limit for them to make their claim until they regain capacity.

  • Date of Knowledge

There are cases when the three-year time limit could start from the date you became aware that your injury was caused by the incident.

  • Criminal assault

For victims of criminal assault to seek brain injury compensation, the time limit is 2 years after the assault happened.

The compensation you get from your head and brain injury helps cover both the immediate and long-term impacts on your life. This includes:

  • Rehabilitation
  • Medical expenses
  • Care and assistance

A serious head or brain injury is one that significantly impacts the brain’s function and can result in long-term or permanent physical, cognitive, and emotional impairments. These injuries require extensive medical treatment, rehabilitation, and long-term care. 

If you or a loved one has sustained a serious head or brain injury, it is crucial to seek immediate medical attention and legal advice. Medical professionals can provide the necessary treatment and rehabilitation, while experienced personal injury solicitors can help you pursue compensation to cover medical expenses, lost income, and other related costs.

The cost of making a legal claim can vary, but with our firm, you don’t need to worry about upfront fees. We provide our services on a ‘no win, no fee basis’, meaning you only pay if we successfully secure compensation for you. We take a small percentage from your compensation as a success fee.

The value of a head injury claim can vary significantly depending on the severity of the injury and its impact on your life. 

  • Minor head injuries, such as mild concussions, may result in compensation ranging from £1,500 to £12,000. 
  • Moderate head injuries, involving longer recovery times and some lasting effects, can lead to compensation between £12,000 and £85,000. 
  • Severe head injuries, which cause substantial long-term or permanent disability, can result in compensation amounts ranging from £85,000 to over £350,000. 

 

However, every case is different, and we cannot predict how much compensation can be claimed until we thoroughly analyse your case.
