Types of Head and Brain Injury

It is possible to make a claim for a head or brain injury within the last 3 years if it was someone else’s fault – this means either an individual or an organisation or business.

General Damages And Special Damages

A claim can be made for ‘pain and suffering’ after a serious injury, which is referred to as a general damages award. In addition, special damages take into consideration:

  • Loss of earnings
  • Future loss of earnings
  • Loss of pensions
  • Reimbursement of travel expenses
  • Rehabilitation
  • Home modifications
  • Other expenses
  • Interim payments

There are various types of injury that can be claimed for.

Acquired Brain Injury

Acquired brain injuries are instances of damage to the brain that a person was not born with but occurred due to accident or illness. If you or a family member has suffered an acquired brain injury, please get in touch and ask our advice, as we have years of experience and can help.

Non-traumatic Brain Injury

This term is used to describe injuries caused by internal factors such as tumours or strokes or can be the result of cerebral hemorrhage (bleeding on the brain). Head and brain injuries can also be a result of medical negligence. If you or a family member has experienced a non-traumatic head injury, please get in touch and ask our advice on making a claim.

Traumatic Brain Injury

This is a general term for serious or traumatic brain injuries, caused by impact to head such as skull fractures, road traffic accidents, trips, falls and other accidents. If you or a family member has suffered a traumatic head injury, call us now for a free assessment of your ability to claim.

Frontal Lobe Damage

These are injuries to the front portion of the brain and more commonly result in changes to the behavior or personality of the person injured. If you want to know if it is possible to make a personal injury claim for yourself or a family member, please call us now for free advice.

Diffuse Axonal Injury

Severe impacts such as those suffered in RTAs can lead to a diffuse axonal injury, where the brain’s connections are damaged by movement forwards and backwards within the skull, which can take varying lengths of time to heal. This sort of injury can result in more lengthy periods of unconsciousness and require longer recovery times as the extent of the injury to the brain is gradually revealed. If you would like to know more about this type of claim, call us now for free advice.

Hypoxic & Anoxic Injury

Cellular damage to the brain is caused by a lack of oxygen. Hypoxic refers to a restriction and reduced amount of oxygen to the brain while anoxic refers to the brain being completely starved of oxygen. These can often be a result of head injuries, strangulation or other medical issues such as a stroke or heart attack. If you would like to know more about this type of claim in relation to your situation, call us now for free advice.
