What is Brain Injury?

What is Barin Injury?

A brain injury is any damage to the structure or function of the brain that results from an external force. This can be caused by a wide range of accidents, including sports injuries, physical assault, road traffic collisions, medical errors and workplace accidents. Even something as simple as whiplash in a car accident could cause changes within the brain that lead to long-term problems.

For the majority of people who suffer a mild brain injury or concussion, their injuries will resolve themselves within a few weeks at most. But cases where the person's injury is more severe, he or she may require ongoing medical treatment and support, which can be expensive. This is where a specialist traumatic head injury lawyer or brain injury claim solicitor can help.

Closed vs Penetrating Head Injuries

Brain injuries can be classified into two categories: closed head injuries and penetrating head injuries. Closed head injuries are the most common type and occur when there is no break in the skull. Penetrating head injuries are less common but more serious, as they involve a foreign object entering the brain.

Signs of a Serious Head/Brain Injury

Brain injuries can have a variety of symptoms, depending on the extent and severity of the injury. Some common symptoms of brain injury include:

  • Headache
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Dizziness
  • Blurred vision
  • Sensitivity to light or noise
  • Confusion
  • Slurred speech
  • Memory loss
  • Mood changes
  • Behavioural changes
  • Fatigue

The long-term effects of brain injury can be devastating and can include physical, cognitive, and emotional difficulties. Many people with brain injuries require lifelong care and support.

What Counts as a Serious Head or Brain Injury?

What Counts as a Serious Head or Brain Injury?

A head or brain injury is considered "serious" if the injured person has lost consciousness for more than 24 hours.

  • Has a Headache that gets worse or does not go away
  • Is confused
  • Has nausea and/or vomiting
  • Cannot remember what happened before or after the accident
  • Can't remember his or her name or address
  • Can't remember the date, where he/she is, or what day it is
  • Has slurred or strange speech
  • Is drowsy all of the time
  • Cannot walk normally after the accident.
Every Brain and Head Injury Is Unique

Every Brain and Head Injury Is Unique

Since every brain injury is unique, the amount of compensation you could potentially receive will also vary.

Your traumatic head injury lawyer will work with you to determine the full extent of your injuries and what financial compensation you may be entitled to.

Some of the factors that will be taken into account include:

  • The severity of your injury
  • The cost of your medical treatment and ongoing care
  • Loss of income (if you can't work due to your injury)
  • The cost of modifying your home or car to accommodate your disability
  • Pain and suffering

If you have suffered a brain injury, please don't hesitate to contact us for a free consultation. All information will be kept strictly confidential.

When Can You Claim Compensation for a Brain Injury?

When Can You Claim Compensation for a Brain Injury?

There is a three-year time limit in place for making a brain injury claim in the UK.

This means that you must start legal proceedings within three years from the date of your injury or the date you became aware of your injury (whichever is later).

Nonetheless, it is important to seek legal advice as soon as possible if you have suffered a brain injury and may be considering a claim.


Because if your case isn't settled while you are still able to give evidence while the events are fresh in your mind, it will become harder to win your case as time goes on. You may also lose evidence or witnesses that could help your case.

How to File a Claim for a Brain Injury

How to File a Claim for a Brain Injury

To file a brain injury claim, you will need to have evidence of your injuries and how they have impacted your life.

This includes:

  • Medical records from the ambulance crew, hospital, doctor or consultant who treated you
  • Copies of relevant medical reports
  • Evidence of financial loss (such as wage slips) if you have suffered a loss of income
  • Copies of your bank statements from the time when you were unable to work

You may also be able to get help from rehabilitation service providers, social workers or third-party professionals who can provide information about how your life has been affected by your brain injury.

Can I Claim on Behalf of a Loved One?

Can I Claim on Behalf of a Loved One?

Yes. If you have suffered a brain injury and would like to bring a compensation claim but are not able to do so because of your injuries, your loved ones may be eligible to file a claim on your behalf.

In some cases, you may be able to make a brain injury claim on behalf of a loved one who has died due to their injuries.

If you are claiming on behalf of a loved one who has died due to a brain injury, you will need to provide evidence of the death and how the brain injury caused it.

You will also need to provide:

  • Proof of your relationship to the deceased
  • A copy of the death certificate
  • Copies of relevant financial documents

As with any injury claim, your loved one's injuries will need to be serious enough to merit compensation.

The loss or death of a loved one is never easy; it can make the grieving process even more difficult if you are coping with unnecessary additional stress due to dealing with insurance companies and legal proceedings. Our team of solicitors will support you every step of the way and ensure that you receive the best possible outcome from your claim.
