Brain or head injury Compensation

Quick Guide

  • Brain or head injuries can have a life-changing impact on all those involved.
  • It is important to have experienced experts on your side to deal with every aspect of what is often a highly complex case.
  • TLW has a team of dedicated specialist solicitors and access to leading experts to ensure the best results.

Have you sustained a brain or head injury?

Has the injury affected your life?

A brain injury can be caused by a blow to the head, tumour, stroke or an infection. Brain injuries can occur as a result of road traffic accidents, assaults, slips and trips, falls, sports injuries and concussions. Concussions can occur as a result of even what seem to be minor accidents.

However, not all brain injuries are accidents. If you think you may be eligible to claim compensation, the team of expert head injury solicitors at TLW can help.

Each year an estimated 1 million people attend hospital A&E in the UK following a head injury. Many more people suffer injuries that are not reported and not assessed by a medical professional.

Headway – The Brain Injury Association estimate there are 500,000 people living with disability in the UK as a result of a traumatic brain injury.

Symptoms of a brain injury include:

  • Unconsciousness;
  • Inability to remember the cause of the injury or events that occurred immediately before or up to 24 hours after;
  • Confusion and disorientation;
  • Difficulty remembering new information;
  • Headache;
  • Dizziness;
  • Blurry vision;
  • Nausea and vomiting;
  • Ringing in the ears;
  • Trouble speaking coherently;
  • Changes in emotions or sleep patterns;

These symptoms could indicate that you’ve suffered a head injury and may be eligible to make a brain injury claim, depending on the circumstances that led to your injury.

TLW are proud to be listed in Headway (the brain injury association) approved brain injury directory. Headway’s directory is designed to enable assist clients to chose firms who have the required level of expertise to deal with brain injury cases.

TLW’s Care Navigators assist our clients and their families to understand some of the many different choices and challenges that will present themselves following a serious injury.
