Head injuries can appear innocuous but have far-reaching and long lasting consequences for the sufferer. There are few other injuries that can have the same impact as head and brain injuries. The diversity of types of head/brain injury and their consequences is reflected in the levels of compensation that are awarded.
Even a relatively minor blow to the head can cause long lasting and serious injury to the brain. Loss of memory, blackouts, loss of memory, fits, epilepsy and even changes to the personality can stem from a head injury. If you or a loved one has suffered a head injury, it’s important to seek immediate medical advice. Only once you have done that can you begin to think about compensation.
