Calculating Compensation for serious head injuries is never straightforward.
Compensation claims for head injuries cover a wide variety of injuries from serious brain damage to minor concussion. Head injuries can occur in many types of accidents from high impact car accidents, falls and accidents at work where for example something is dropped from height and lands on the person below. If you have suffered a head injury then you deserve compensation for all you have been through.
Head injury compensation awards for brain damage can depend upon the degree of insight the person has to their condition together with the extent of their physical limitations. They will often require 24 hour care and assistance for the rest of their life. Lesser head injuries can still lead to many months of pain and suffering even if there are no permanent symptoms.
