What can a claim help to pay for, and how much compensation can you receive?

If successful, your head or brain injury compensation claim could help to pay for many things that could improve the quality of life for you and your loved ones.

These include, but are not limited to:

  • A payment to acknowledge the level of pain and suffering you may be in or have undergone.
  • Loss of income
  • Equipment
  • Costs of medical care and treatment
  • Transportation costs and things like vehicle adaptions
  • Modifications to the home

These costs will help to determine the level of compensation you will receive from a claim.

When can you make a claim for a head or brain injury?

Generally speaking, you have three years from the point of the injury taking place to process a claim. However this may be longer in certain cases.

We will advise you on this. If you or a loved one is involved in an accident that results in a brain or spinal injury, it is in your interests to begin the claim process as quickly as possible. This should help you to make a successful claim.

How long will it take?

The time it takes to settle a claim varies greatly. It generally depends on:

  1. whether liability is disputed and
  2. the complexity of your injuries.

We are experienced in obtaining interim payments to help while the claim is ongoing. We can guide you on the likely timescale for concluding your claim when we hear about your accident.

How can a case be funded?

There are a number of options available for paying for your solicitor’s costs.

We are happy to consider representing you on a Conditional Fee Agreement (“no win, no fee” basis). As the name implies you have the peace of mind that if you lose your case you should not have to pay any legal costs. This is something we can discuss in much more detail when you get in touch to talk about your accident.
