  • How Do I Know if I Have a Head Injury Claim?

    There are obviously a wide range of possible head injuries, ranging from minor cuts and bruises through to serious types of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). Around 150,000 people in the UK are admitted to hospital each year after sustaining a head injury. NHS guidelines are that head injuries may be difficult to specifically predict or avoid, but there are relevant steps to mitigate the risk of injury.

    Where these risks were ignored and an injury has resulted from the negligence of another party, there may be cause for the injured person to make a compensation claim. With the guidance of an expert head injury solicitor in Liverpool, a claim can be made for an accident at home, in the workplace, a sports field or on the road.

    In short, you may have cause to make a compensation claim for a head injury, provided the incident:

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

    Successful head injury compensation claims have been brought against a range of parties, including:

    • employers
    • drivers
    • local authorities
    • reckless sports opponents

    If our Serious Injury Solicitors in Liverpool took on your claim, we would look to demonstrate that any head injury you sustained was due to the incident in question and that the defendant should be held legally accountable. This is what is required to succeed in a head injury compensation claim.

    We can also help with ensuring you receive a full assessment on the severity of a head injury, as the medical support provided during a compensation claim can help with the overall compensation assessment. This process makes sure the injured party receives fair compensation for any support and/or care they require.

  • Are there any other types of head injury claim?

    In the event that the brain injury was shown to be caused by incorrect medical care, misdiagnosis or a lack of medical care, this would class as an Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) and the claim – usually against a hospital or medical professional – would be handled by our expert Clinical Negligence team.

  • Can you make a head injury claim if you’re partly responsible?

    Many people think that if they have done something which may have contributed to their head injury, they’d have no right to a compensation claim. This is not necessarily true. Even if the claimant shares some of the responsibility with the other party, compensation could still be awarded in proportion to how specific blame is determined. This would be referred to as a split-liability agreement.

    An example of split-liability in a head injury case could be where a work employee was supplied with protective headgear but was not wearing it at the time of the incident, or a cyclist injured on the road while not wearing a helmet. A split-liability agreement recognises that while the injured claimant may not be at fault for the accident that caused the head injury, they could have taken steps to mitigate the risk and/or reduce the extent of injury.

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

    The compensation awarded for different head injuries varies greatly, with the value depending on impact, whether short-term or life-changing. For example, a facial injury such as breaking a nose or 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 greater):

    (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

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!!
