Brain injuries can be sustained in almost any scenario, from road traffic accidents or bicycle accidents to accidents in the workplace. They can even be sustained by clinical negligence (such as a surgical error) or by falling over on a public road or slippery surface. In some, extreme cases, a brain injury can be caused by an assault. These types of instances can result in injuries to the brain with a wide-range of knock-on effects.
Moreover, how an individual is affected by a brain injury will differ greatly from the next person with “the same” injury since the brain is a very delicate and intricate part of the body. As the brain regulates various bodily functions, from motor skills, cognitive ability, and language skills, the impact of a brain injury can be wide-ranging, but so too can the severity of the impact – so a brain injury will be a very individual thing.
If you want to make a brain injury claim, you should first ensure that the solicitor acting on your behalf has a history of dealing with such claims, and have a proven track record of resolving cases. Headway (the brain injury charity) can suggest a number of their recommended solicitors if you are unsure of who to turn to, and they also can offer a range of support and advice for families affected by brain injury.
