Head Injury Compensation Claims
At Duncan Gibbins Solicitors we understand that claims for compensation that arise as a result of a head, or brain injury need to be treated differently to any other type of claim.
An accident that has caused damage to the brain can affect both the victim and their family for the rest of their life. It is crucial, therefore, that any claim for head injury compensation is dealt with by experts in that specific field.
At Duncan Gibbins Solicitors we understand that personal injury compensation is only one part of the claim; that is why we have established links with rehabilitation providers to ensure that recovery and the improvement to your quality if life are priorities.
Head Injury Compensation Awards
The symptoms associated with brain damage vary from emotional, cognitive, behavioural and physical. While it is important that any victim and family members affected receive the necessary medical treatment and support after an accident, a compensation award can help to provide financial stability as well as the very best in future care, medication and rehabilitation.
The level of the award will depend on the severity of your injuries and the affect that it has had on your quality of life.
Although every claim for compensation is different-particularly where head or brain injuries are concerned-industry guidelines can provide a rough estimate as to what someone might expect to receive.
