Injuries to the brain or head can cause serious long-term damage to a person. The effects of an injury to the brain can be devastating for the victim, and also for their loved ones. Head injury patients often need long-term care and intensive rehabilitation treatment, and some may never fully recover from the injury.

Our Liverpool based solicitors support clients in Merseyside and the north-west through the process of submitting brain injury claims, helping you gain access to those essential funds needed for critical treatment. We don’t want to expose you to any further hardship, so we don’t ask to risk court costs. All claims are handled on a no win, no fee basis – so if your claim is not successful, you won’t have to pay a penny in legal costs.
What are the main causes of brain injuries?
Brain injuries are often the direct result of head injuries. A fall or a blow to the head, such as from a car accident, can damage the skull and the brain underneath. This damage is often irreversible and can drastically alter the injured person as a result. Brain injuries can also be caused by a lack of oxygen to the brain – for example as a result of drowning, strangulation, or an error during a medical procedure.
Compensation claims for brain and head injuries
If you or someone close to you has suffered a brain injury as the result of an accident, or because of medical or employment negligence, you could be eligible for compensation. A compensation claim cannot undo the damage caused by the accident, but it can help with specialist treatment costs, care expenses and other financial needs that arise after a serious accident.
How much compensation can I claim for a head or brain injury?
The amount of compensation which can be claimed is directly related to the severity of the injury and its impact on the victim’s life. A minor concussion caused by a bump at work might have some lasting effects, but the person should be able to return to normal life soon after. However, a serious brain injury can leave a patient unable to walk, speak or even breathe for themselves. In these cases, the patient will certainly require round the clock care for the rest of their life: and compensation claims should reflect this need.
