If you or someone you love has suffered a brain injury, contact the expert brain injury solicitors and get your compensation claim underway today. We operate on a no win, no fee basis, which means there is no financial risk to you throughout the entirety of your compensation claim.

Our expert team of serious injury solicitors specialise in helping victims of brain injuries claim the compensation they deserve.

We understand how devastating a brain injury can be, to the victim as well as their family, and as such we will fight for the maximum amount of compensation available at all times to ensure your best interests are looked after. A compensation claim covers so much more than the pain and suffering associated with this potentially life changing affliction, but helps families and victims get the emotional, physical and financial support they need to move past this injury and get back on the road to recovery.

What is a brain injury?

A victim can suffer a traumatic brain injury when an impact to the head is sustained, with the most common being falls from height, physical attacks, road traffic accidents and sports injuries.

Traumatic brain injuries are divided into three different categories namely:

  • Closed head injuries
  • Open or penetrating head injuries
  • Crushing head injuries

Non traumatic head injuries can be sustained as a result of internal forces or when an illness affects the brain. Some of the common causes of non-traumatic brain injuries are:

  • Vascular problems such as strokes
  • Haemorrhages
  • Aneurysms
  • Hypoxia
  • Tumours
  • Encephalitis
  • Hydrocephalus

What are some of the symptoms of a brain injury?

The symptoms of a brain injury, whether traumatic or non-traumatic can vary from person to person and depend on the severity of the injury itself, but some of the more common recognisable symptoms are:

  • Lack of balance
  • Blurred vision
  • Disturbed sleep
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Sensitivity to sound
  • Changes in social behaviour
  • Speech problems

This is by no means an exhaustive list of the symptoms associated with a brain injury as there are a myriad of cognitive effects that can be caused by a traumatic or non-traumatic brain injury.

If a victim's mental abilities are affected due to a brain injury these are classed as Cognitive effects. These cognitive effects may hinder a person's ability to learn, remember and think as they normally would.

In addition, the cognitive effects may include:

  • Memory loss (amnesia)
  • Difficulties with problem solving
  • Behavioural problems
  • Changes in personality
  • Language disabilities
  • Attention problems
  • Problems with decision making and multi-tasking
  • Emotional problems such as:
    • Irritability
    • Anger issues
    • Frustration
    • Anxiety, depression and tearfulness

Due to the vast amount of devastating effects a brain injury can have on a victim, it is vital that they get the appropriate medical help they need to increase their chances of recovery. A compensation claim does so much more than help to ease the pain and suffering of a brain injury, but allows victims and their families access to rehabilitation programmes and necessary on-going treatments.
