Brain and head injuries are very commonplace in the UK, and nearly 1 million people are being admitted into hospital with a form of brain or head injury every year. Severe brain injuries can have devastating consequences on a person and their families, and therefore the damages awarded can be extremely high. The complexity of brain injury cases has meant that the Medical Accident Group has expert solicitors that know how to fight for the compensation deserved.
The brain injury may have been ‘acquired’ at birth or as a result of negligent healthcare or catastrophic personal injury. The results may cause debilitating complications such as motor neurone problems, impaired cognitive function and cerebral palsy. A victim’s quality of life will be severely reduced.
If the brain injury was ‘traumatic’ and happened as a result of a physical attack or somebody’s negligence in their duty of care, you can be awarded compensation in the same way. Adaptations to your home, the cost of care and rehabilitation programs like physiotherapy will all be recovered to help make sure your life is returned to as best as possible.
If your brain injury is as a result of a criminal attack you could receive a payment from the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA). This is a government-funded award and there are strict conditions for the compensation to be awarded.
The Medical Accident Group has strong links and close relationships with Headway, CBIT and others and means our expert solicitors are at the forefront of brain injury claims in the UK.
