  • How would I know if I’m eligible for a head injury claim?

    There are a wide range of possible head injuries, ranging from small cuts or bruises, right up to sustaining a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). Currently, around 150,000 people each year have to be admitted to a UK hospital due to a head injury. Currently, the NHS guidelines state that while it is tough to specifically predict and avoid head injuries, at the same time there are a number of key steps that can be made to reduce any injury risk.

    Should it be suspected that such risks were not adequately protected against, and that it resulted in someone suffering a head injury due to negligence by another party, then the head injury victim should look into pursuing a claim for compensation. As soon as you enlist a trusted head injury solicitor operating in the Birmingham area, a claim can be made related to your accident, whether at work, on a sports field, the road or even at home.

    The victim of a head injury could have cause to claim compensation if an incident:

    • occurred within the last three years
    • was caused by another party

    We have a track record of such compensation claims, won against such parties as:

    • employers
    • drivers
    • local authorities
    • reckless sports opponents

    The fact that Hampson Hughes Solicitors have extensive experience in this type of compensation claim leaves our serious injury solicitors in Birmingham in the ideal position to represent your claim. Should we take on your representation, we make it our endeavour to display that as well as any head injury incurred being because of the incident in question, that it is also a situation where a specific defendant should face legal accountability.

    We will also make sure that any of our head injury clients are given an expert assessment on the seriousness of their head injury. The medical assessment portion of a head injury compensation claim not only provides helpful clinical advice, it can also add weight to a compensation assessment, allowing the injured party to receive the full and fair compensation in relation to any support and/or ongoing care they may require.

  • Are there other types of head injury claim?

    While the majority of head injury claims are covered by our serious injury solicitors, there may be cases where a brain injury has been caused by the negligence of a medical professional, whether in misdiagnosis, a surgical error or another area. Such an injury is known as an Acquired Brain Injury (ABI), with this claim type – usually against a medical facility or professional – delivered by the expert legal guidance of our Clinical Negligence team.

  • What if the victim has partial responsibility?

    Many people assume that if an action of a victim may have contributed to their head injury, it would end their opportunity to claim compensation. This is often not the case, as even where a claimant is found to have some measure of responsibility, a compensation amount could still be awarded. This figure would be determined in direct correlation to the level to which specific blame is apportioned, in what is termed ‘split-liability’ agreements.

    Such a scenario could be an employee being offered protective headgear, but then not making use the item at the moment of the incident. In such a split-liability agreement, the ruling recognises that while an injured claimant may not be liable for the specific event where the head injury occurred, they could still have taken one or more specific steps in order to reduce the risk of injury and/or mitigate the level of possible harm.

  • How much can be claimed in a head injury compensation case?

    The compensation awarded for different head injuries can differ greatly, with amounts depending on impact, whether short-term or life-changing. For example, a facial injury such as breaking a cheekbone brings one level of compensation, while a serious brain injury, often bringing long-term harm, brings higher compensation amounts.

    The table below features the typical compensation amounts for a few of the most common head injury claims: (total settlements factoring in treatment costs and other associated losses are often considerably more):

    (Parameters in line with the latest edition of the Judicial College Guidelines – 14th Edition, Sep 2017)

    Injury TypeCompensation Amount
    Epilepsy£48,080 to £115,130
    Moderate to severe brain damage£37,760 to £354,260
    Broken jaw£5,660 to £26,370
    Broken cheekbone£2,040 to £13,840
    Minor brain or head injury£1,760 to £10,180
    Broken nose£1,500 to £4,470

Stephen McNorton

Great service from start to finish. My solicitor was always happy to explain what was happening and in the end, he got me more compensation than what the insurance company were going to offer me. Glad I used them to look after my claim and I've just had my cheque earlier than expected today!!
