The brain is the most important organ in the human body. It controls and coordinates actions and reactions, allows us to think and feel and enables us to have memories and feelings. Brain and head injuries are therefore one of the most serious and potentially life-changing injuries a person can sustain. The law covering legal claims for traumatic brain injuries is thus extremely specialised. If you have sustained a head injury at work or through an accident caused by another’s negligence in the last three years, our personal injury solicitors are on hand to provide personalised and supportive legal advice at an undoubtedly challenging and distressing time for you and your family.
There are many different types and severities of head and brain injuries, ranging from mild concussion to penetrating head injuries and brain contusions, the causes of which can include:
The effect of a serious head injury on an individual depends on a number of factors such as the type, location and severity of the injury. Symptoms can be wide-ranging, from physical effects such as balance problems, headaches and dizziness to cognitive, emotional and behavioural effects such as memory problems and anger.
A head or brain injury may significantly compromise your ability to walk, speak or complete everyday tasks to the extent you were accustomed to prior to your injury. Head injuries can therefore be difficult for you and your family to deal with. If you have suffered a head or brain injury in an accident, you should seek advice from an experienced lawyer who will handle your case effectively.
If you have suffered a head injury as a result of another person’s negligence, you have a right to make a claim for compensation. The damages awarded for head and brain injuries intend to help the injured person manage their pain and suffering, provide the financial resources required for treatment and rehabilitation and cover any other associated costs and losses, such as loss of wages and future earning ability.
