Brain and head injuries are serious and life-changing injuries that can affect any of us after an accident. A head injury claim is then often necessary to provide financial support to this life-changing event. The injuries usually have a huge effect on the sufferers’ life and the lives of their families. Unfortunately, head injuries – from one degree to another – are extremely common, with 1,000,000 people visiting hospital each year with them, and 125,000 of those being serious enough to be admitted. Despite the protective bone in the skull, the brain is still easily damaged. This is because it can easily get damaged or bruised if it collides with the skull due to a trauma impact. Such impacts can cause bleeding or cause fluid to build in the skull, which leads to pressure on the brain and possible brain damage. In cases like this a brain injury claim may be possible for brain injury compensation.

There are many different types of accidents that can cause head and brain injuries. Road traffic accidents, assaults and slip and fall accidents are all common causes of this type of injury compensation. Sufferers of head and brain injuries often need prolonged specialist and occasionally expensive care and treatment. The rehabilitation process is long with often overwhelming costs involved. We understand this at Ashley Ainsworth and can offer advice regarding all aspects of your situation and making a head injury claim.
Occupational, speech and physiotherapists are just some of the specialists injured people often need. A brain injury claim for compensation can go a long way to provide support through this difficult time for sufferers, giving them the comfort and time to recover fully. In cases where permanent disability is caused by a head injury, then brain injury compensation is awarded to make adaptations to living accommodation to make it suitable for the claimants needs.
Brain and head injuries can have a wide varied effect on individuals, just a few of which are listed below:
