A brain or head injury can be caused in a number of ways. It can be a result of a traffic accident, a slip or trip, from an attack or as a result of medical or clinical negligence. The effects of an injury can vary greatly as well. From difficulties remembering and concentrating to more permanent damage - including physical disability.
A claim for compensation can be made if you or a relative have been involved in an accident or have suffered as a result of a medical procedure. Claims can be much higher than normal personal injury rates and will take into account the type of injury suffered and how it has adversely affected the individual’s quality of life. It will also take into account the costs of any on-going care or medical treatment that might be required.
