    Compensation claims for acquired and traumatic brain injury (ABI and TBI)

    A brain injury can have a major long-term impact on the life of the sufferer and often on their friends and family. Ensuring the right amount of compensation is paid can give someone access to the support they need throughout their lives and ease the care load for loved ones.

    Compensation plays an important part in the recovery process since it can enable better treatment and more rehabilitation than would be available on the NHS. Rehabilitation may not reverse the effects of a brain injury but it can speed up and improve someone's recovery. It will also give the injured person the ability to find coping strategies that work for them to reduce the impact of ongoing symptoms, such as memory problems.

    What compensation can you claim following a brain injury?

    Additional to the compensation that can be recovered at the conclusion of the personal injury claim, money can be requested during the course of the claim to fund rehabilitation as well as:

    • Compensation can be due for physical or psychological damage or both
    • You can claim compensation for the pain and suffering caused by your injuries and the things you need as a result of your brain injury
    • You can also claim compensation for financial loss. For example, for loss of earnings.
       

    The amount of compensation depends on:

    • The seriousness of the brain injury
    • The extent the financial loss
    • The support required for the future.


    Getting specialist legal support for brain injury

    The symptoms of acquired brain injury are unique to each individual. They can include problems with memory, concentration, speech, mobility, and personality and behavioural changes. A range of specialist medics is needed to properly assess the injuries for the purposes of the claim.

    This kind of compensation claim is complex and requires a personal injury lawyer with specialist experience in the area of brain injuries and an understanding of the ongoing implications for people’s lives.
