Your brain injury compensation

If successful, your head or brain injury compensation claim could help to pay for many things that could improve the quality of life for you and your loved ones.

These include, but are not limited to:

  • Compensation for your injuries
  • Loss of income and pension
  • Specialist equipment
  • Costs of specialist medical care and treatment
  • Transportation costs and things like vehicle adaptions
  • Modifications to the home
  • Our team has recovered over £200m in compensation for our clients

How long do I have to make a head injury claim?

Generally speaking, you have three years from the point of the injury taking place to process a claim. However this may be longer in certain cases.

We will advise you on this. If you or a loved one is involved in an accident that results in a brain or spinal injury, it is in your interests to begin the claim process as quickly as possible. This should help you to make a successful claim.

How can a brain injury case be funded?

There are a number of options available for paying for our solicitor’s costs.

We are happy to consider representing you on a Conditional Fee Agreement (“no win, no fee” basis). As the name implies you have the peace of mind that you know exactly where you stand. This is something we can discuss in much more detail when you get in touch to talk about your accident.

How much compensation could you receive for a brain injury?

While there is no fixed amount of compensation for brain injury claims, this will be individual to you, your circumstances and the impact your injury has had on your day-to-day life. By hiring a specialist brain injury solicitor to take on your case, they will use expertise in this area to get you the right compensation you need to get back on track.

Ensuring your compensation works for you

Our specialist Team Around the Client approach extends to a dedicated Compensation Protection Unit.

Our specialist solicitors work closely with financial advisors to ensure that your compensation (or that of your loved one) is effectively planned and managed so it works effectively for them throughout their life. We can also act as professional deputy for those who no longer have the capacity to make financial decisions, ensuring that as vulnerable individuals their compensation is protected.

Brain injury as a result of medical negligence

If your brain injury has come about as a result of medical negligence, such as a misdiagnosed stroke or brain tumour, we can help too:

Birth injury claims
Our specialist team of solicitors work hard to achieve justice and recompense when you or those close to you have suffered serious injuries, before or during birth, or in the first few days and weeks of your child’s life.
Brain haemorrhage negligence claims
Failing to treat, a delay in treating and/or misdiagnosing a brain haemorrhage can have a devastating impact on someone’s health and disability, and can cause potentially avoidable brain damage. If this has happened, we can help you make a claim for compensation.
Cancer claims
If you or a loved one suffers from cancer, early diagnosis is vital if you’re to have the best chance of survival. So when initial signs are missed due to someone’s negligence you may be denied the best chance of returning to health. If that’s the case, we can help you make a cancer misdiagnosis compensation claim.
Meningitis claims
Should the initial signs of meningitis be missed, the window of opportunity for early treatment can be lost, and you or your loved one may have been denied the best chance of a full or better recovery. If this has happened to you or a loved one, we can help you investigate a claim for compensation.
Sepsis negligence claims
An injury caused by sepsis could be temporary or life changing – either way, if the condition was missed due to negligence, you may have a claim for compensation.
Stroke negligence claims
Failing to treat, a delay in treating and/or misdiagnosing a stroke can have a devastating impact on someone’s health and disability, and can cause potentially avoidable brain damage. If this has happened, we can help you make a claim for compensation.
