Head and brain injury have a severe impact on the lives of an individual. Some of the activities which the injury will hinder include: work, education and day to day living.
When a person suffers from head injury, he or she will experience physical problems such as cognitive impairment and impaired movement.
When you encounter such problems, you may want to consider an Acquired Brain Injury Compensation Claim. This is where a solicitor calculates the amount of compensation which can be claimed for your pain, suffering and long term needs.
The initial step is for your lawyer to acquire a medical report on your behalf. Consequently, he or she describes exactly the condition of the brain and head injuries and what the future holds based on your symptoms. The report is compiled by the consultant neurosurgeon. The report is then presented to your solicitor who will look at the severity of head and brain injury set out. In addition to the pain and suffering, the solicitor will go through the financial loses which you have incurred. Some of the charges include: travelling expenses, medical expenses, lost income and head injury rehabilitation expenses. As a result, the total and future losses will be calculated by the solicitor and added to the suffering compensation. This will determine how much you will be paid. Apart from the final compensation figure, you will also be entitled to interests on your claim.
The severity of the brain injury is also used to calculate how much you can claim.
Minor or moderate brain injury
This is a brain injury which is indicated by a coma of just a short amount of time. The length of time is between 15 minutes to six hours. The settlement which you will receive under this condition is £1,600 to £10,000.
Severer brain and head injury
A severe brain injury follows a period of six to forty eight hours in a coma. This is also accompanied by post-traumatic condition from 1 to 7 days in which you may feel both confused and disoriented. The person who is suffering from a severe injury claim is entitled to £12,000 to £220,000.
Very severe head and brain injury
One could have suffered a severe brain injury if he or she has been in PTA for more than seven days. This might be an indication that you have suffered from severe brain and head damage. When you are suffering from serious damages, you could receive £220,000-£320,000. This is because of your reduced living standards and life expectancy.
