How we build you a strong claim for brain injury compensation

You will deal with a single specialist solicitor when you instruct Blackwater Law. Your solicitor will undertake a thorough investigation of your case to form grounds for the legal arguments to be made.

This will involve identifying witnesses (if appropriate) and will almost certainly involve obtaining an expert opinion on your brain injuries from leading medical specialists. This will provide important evidence in support of your claim.

Blackwater Law has access to a unique network of specialists that the team has called upon on many occasions to provide supporting evidence in cases that have then been successful as a result.

What is considered a serious brain injury?

There are varying degrees of brain injury severity. There are minor concussions, right through to traumatic and even penetrating brain injuries. The severity of the impact is not always an indicator of the severity of the brain injury, as even more minor concussive brain injuries can have life-changing effects if not dealt with correctly.

Brain injuries can be particularly complex. This is due to the significant debilitating effects such injuries can have and the impact they can have on the life of the injured individual. Each person’s life may be affected differently by a serious brain injury

Brain injuries can range in their complexity and therefore, the amount of compensation a person could be entitled to. A mild brain injury that involves minimal, if any brain damage could be valued between £2,210 – £12,770. A severe brain injury that causes serious disablement and dependence on others could be entitled to claim between £219,070 – £282,010.
