Brain injury FAQs

What is a brain injury claim?

A brain injury occurs when a blow or trauma to the head results in damage to the brain. This may involve a direct impact to the head, or it could result in reduced oxygen supply to the brain, which can cause injuries.

If you, or a loved one, has sustained a brain injury, it may be possible to make a brain injury compensation claim, depending on the surrounding circumstances and the impact it has had on your life.

Is there a time limit for brain injury claims?

You will typically have three years to bring forward a brain injury claim. This is from the ‘date of knowledge’ where you were first aware that:

  • You had suffered a brain injury.
  • Someone else was to blame for the injury.

There are some exceptions to this general rule. These include where:

  • The injured party lacks mental capacity. Where this is the case, there is no time limit for someone to make a brain injury claim on their behalf.
  • The injured party is under 18. A claim can be made at any time until they turn 18, from which point a claim can be brought until they turn 21.

How long do brain injury claims take?

It is not always possible to precisely estimate how long it will take for a brain injury claim to be resolved, as they are often high value and complex.

Our brain injury claim solicitors strive to resolve all claims as efficiently as possible without compromising on the amount of compensation we seek for our clients. This means that if your claim can be settled out of court, this will usually be faster than where court proceedings are needed,

We will do everything we can to secure an early settlement and, where possible, look to secure interim payments on your behalf until the final total is reached.

How can I prove I have brain damage?

Proving that brain damage has occurred following an incident will usually be determined by an independent medical exam. This will often include measures such as imaging tests, CT scans and MRI scans. Medical professionals may also carry out additional neurological exams that test cognition, motor function, coordination and reflexes.

How do head and brain injuries happen?

Brain injuries, particularly traumatic brain injuries, can happen for a number of reasons. These include motor vehicle accidents, falls, sports related accidents and physical altercations.
