What can I claim for a head injury?
It is vital that every aspect of your future needs is considered in detail and included in the claim. Typically, this will include:
- past and future loss of earnings;
- loss of pension;
- rehabilitation needs including therapies and long-term care;
- conversion or adaptation of your home;
- specialist equipment including adapted vehicles and other transportation requirements.
People are often surprised at the number of experts that are required in a claim for a brain injury. However, this is reflective of the catastrophic effect it can have on your life. Our expertise means that we have longstanding relationships with some of the country’s leading experts. Depending on your circumstances, we may need to instruct experts in neurosurgery, neurology, neuropsychiatry, rehabilitation medicine, care/occupational therapy, nursing, speech therapy and building/accommodation.
What happens when you contact us?
One of our specialist solicitors will meet with you to explore your situation and advise you on the strength of your case and prospects of success. Subject to that, if you happy, they will get your claim started.
In most head injury cases, a priority will be the appointment of an independent medical professional referred to as a ‘case manager’. They will co-ordinate your rehabilitation, the recruitment of any carers required, the purchase of specialist aids and equipment and even adaptations to your home.
We will also begin the process of instructing medical and other experts to support your claim.
How long will your claim take?
With any brain injury claim, it is fundamental that you and your family are protected financially for the future. To do that we need the experts to be in a position to assess in full the long term impact of your injuries. Inevitably, they will need to wait to see the outcome of your rehabilitation and any other treatment before they can provide a long-term picture.
For that reason, it is not unusual for a claim for a brain injury to take several years. That is why it is crucial for us to seek regular interim payments for you while your claim is ongoing. Not only can this help when your income has been affected, but it can provide funds for necessary capital outlay such as for the purchase of specialist equipment or modifications to your home.
Once we understand more about your individual circumstances we can provide you with a far better time estimate for your claim.
