What is a Traumatic Brain Injury?

A traumatic brain injury occurs when the brain is subject to serious trauma due to a head injury, which can occur as a result of a car accident, a fall or an accident at work. After suffering from a head injury, the patient may feel sick, dizzy and fall unconscious and there may be visible signs of damage to the head.

The long-term effects and symptoms of a traumatic brain injury depends on a number of factors, including the severity and location of the injury and the period of unconsciousness. The main symptoms of a traumatic brain injury include:

  • Dizziness
  • Headaches
  • Balance problems
  • Cognitive difficulties
  • Behaviour changes
  • Loss of function

Depending on how severe the head injury is, rehabilitation may be necessary in order to teach the brain alternative ways to function to help to minimise the risk of long-term brain damage.

What is Subtle Brain Injury?

A subtle brain injury usually occurs when the brain is subject to trauma after a head injury, which may be due to a car accident, fall, or an accident at work.

Often, the trauma to the head may not appear to be too serious, especially if there is no visible signs of injury to the head. However, there may be some damage to the brain after an accident which may cause long-term, disabling symptoms.

The long-term effects of a subtle brain injury depend on a number of factors, including the severity of the injury and where it’s located. The most common long-term symptoms of subtle brain injuries include:

  • Frequent headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Balance problems
  • Changes in behaviour
  • Cognitive difficulties

There are a number of different treatment options for subtle brain injuries, which will depend on the severity and symptoms of the injury. The most common treatment plans include neurologists, psychiatrists and occupational therapists.

Can I Claim Compensation for a Brain Injury?

If you are looking to claim compensation for a brain injury, you will need to be able to prove that the injury was caused by another’s negligence. The compensation amounts for brain injuries can vary depending on the severity of the injury and the impact it has had on both your working capabilities and your needs for care.

As part of your claim, medical experts will be instructed to provide their professional opinion on the effect the accident has had and how that may progress in the future.

  • Highly recommend this firm for their expertise in fibromyalgia. I am eternally grateful for all the hard work and care taken in supporting me during one of the most challenging periods of my life. Thank you.

  • I would absolutely recommend Brian Barr Solicitors. They looked after me after the previous solicitor’s would not listen as my health was taking a rapid turn downward because of fibromyalgia issues. Brian Barr’s diligence meant I had a suitable conclusion for the nature of my car accident.

  • Alex Cohen and his team were nothing but amazing. They fully explained everything I needed to know throughout my entire case (which was just over 5 years!) with a great deal of compassion and care. I would have no hesitation in recommending Brian Barr solicitors if a member of my family or friend ever needed it.
