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.

If you think you can prove negligence for your brain injury you may be entitled to compensation.

What Is Brain Injury?

There are two types of brain injury, Traumatic Brain Injury and Subtle Brain Injury.

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 depend 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
  • Behavior 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 minimize the risk of long-term brain damage.

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
  • Behaviour changes
  • 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.
