What is a brain injury?

Brain injuries occur when there is injury or trauma to the head, causing brain damage. While these injuries range in severity, brain injuries are generally treated as some of the most serious as they can be life changing. There are two main types of brain injury:

  • Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI): this type of brain injury is caused by external head trauma. This can be caused by slips, trips and falls, road traffic accidents and pedestrian accidents, for example.
  • Acquired Brain Injury (ABI): this term is used to describe any brain injury that happens after birth, including a TBI. ABI’s are most commonly caused by things like brain tumours, strokes or neurological illness.

How long do brain injury claims take?

It can take around three years to settle brain injury claims because it can often take a long time to see the full impact of some head injuries. It’s always worth the wait with these claims, however, as there’s always the possibility that your claim could be undervalued.

Don’t let this put you off making a claim, though - interim payments can still be made while your claim is open to help you page for any necessary urgent care. This will ensure that you receive the care and rehabilitation you need while the claim is ongoing.

How much compensation can I receive for a brain injury?

One question we often get asked is, ‘how much will I receive for my brain injury compensation claim?’ This is a difficult question to answer as it depends on a few important details.

We calculate your compensation based on the severity of your head injury and its impact on your life. Because of this, it’s tough for us to give an answer without collecting enough relevant information about your claim.

PM Law also operate a no deductions claims service which means that we will not charge you a success fee.

Our solicitors at PM Law will work hard to ensure you receive interim payments during your claim. We’ll do everything we can to secure these payments so that you’re able to pay for any medical treatments, for example.

You have three years from the date of the accident to make a claim or three years from the date of diagnosis. 

If the claimant has lost mental capacity as a result of their injury, then the time limit does not begin until they regain this capacity. When the claimant isn't expected to regain mental capacity, a relative or other party can claim on the injured party's behalf. 

The majority of head and brain injury claims are settled outside of court. Claims for more long-term injuries often have a higher value, meaning they're also more likely to be settled in court.
