Head injury compensation amounts

Injuries to the head can be complex, particularly where these involve brain injuries. 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.

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

What Types of Head Injury Can I Claim Compensation For?

Your financial settlement will depend greatly on how much long-term pain and/or disability you suffer as a result of the injury, as well as your own personal circumstances. Head injuries can vary greatly in severity, from bruising and minor lacerations to concussion, a fractured skull or brain trauma. Even a relatively minor head injury can have serious implications for the long-term health of the victim and can lead to headaches, vision problems and bouts of dizziness. More serious head and brain injuries can affect the victim’s quality of life and can cause permanent disability and sometimes even death.

Head injuries can be caused by virtually any kind of accident, including a car accident, accident at work, physical assaults, medical negligence (including surgical error, birth injury and misdiagnosis) and military injury, to name just a few. Blackwater Law is experienced in successfully settling claims involving all of these causes.

Concussion

A concussion is the temporary loss of mental function or consciousness that occurs after a blow or another injury is sustained to the head. It is the most common but least serious type of head injury. Symptoms of concussion can include temporary loss of consciousness, periods of memory loss, vision problems and periods of confusion.

Open head Injury

An open head injury, sometimes referred to as a penetrating head injury, occurs when an object penetrates the skull and enters the brain. They are usually focal, which means that they affect a particular area of brain tissue. Open head injuries are extremely serious and can cause permanent disability, mental impairment and death.

Closed head Injury

A closed head injury is a trauma in which the brain is injured as a result of a blow to the head, or a sudden, violent motion that causes the brain to shake inside the skull. Unlike an open head injury, with a closed head injury, no object penetrates the brain. They can be either diffuse (affecting cells and tissues throughout the brain) or more focal, with the damage concentrated on one area.
