What is a head injury claim? 

Medically speaking, a “head injury” is any injury to the brain, skull or scalp.  
From there, head injuries can have many definitions or characterisations. These can include: 
Haematoma (blood clot) on the brain 
Haemorrhage – also known as uncontrolled bleeding on the brain 
Concussion – when the brain hits the wall of the skull 
Oedema - swelling of the brain 
Skull fractures 
Diffuse axonal injury, where the brain is damaged without bleeding 
There are, of course, less severe head injuries and so, rest assured, no matter the scale of your injury, MG Legal’s dedicated personal injury solicitors will ensure your injuries are properly assessed and included in your final award. 

Types of head injury claims: 

Life is very complicated, and we all take part in lots of different activities. There is no one major way to sustain a personal injury to the head. It is simply a fact of life that when incidents occur, head injuries are always possible simply because of the unexpected nature of the incident and that, like any other part of the body, the head is an extremity and so more likely to be thrown around or hit. 
Potential causes of head injury that our personal injury specialists can help you make a claim for personal injury compensation, include: 
• Hitting the interior of the vehicle, such as the steering wheel, or window, as a result of a Road Traffic Accident; 
• Hitting your head on the floor during a slip, trip or fall in a public place, such as a shop or supermarket; 
• Being hit in the head in an accident at work when you have not been given  
Accidents in sports centres and gyms due to faulty equipment or poor induction  
Accidents in swimming pools, including slipping incidents and poorly marked  
diving areas;

How much compensation would I get for a personal injury to the head? 

Compensation for an injury to the head can vary dramatically. At the lowest level of injury, you may have a minor cut or bruise, or even no actual physical signs of injury, but suffer from headaches, and psychological distress (for example, the fear of being the passenger in a car, or fear of taking part in activities at work). At the other end of the scale, we have life-changing injuries to the neck and brain, leaving a person requiring 24 hour care, and completely unable to work again.  
At MG Legal, we know that each and every one of our clients is different, and that similar injuries can affect them and their lifestyle in completely different ways. The following figures for personal injury settlement, are taken from the 15th Editiion of the Judicial Studies Board Guidelines, and the figures stated are for the personal injury aspect of your claim, only- so do not include any claim for financial losses (special damages) that you may have suffered. 
Estimated compensation:  
Very Severe Brain Damage- where there is little or no ability to perform even basic functions such as opening the eyes and understanding speech 
£264,650 to £379,100 
Moderately Severe Brain Damage- where there is severe disability requiring continuous professional care 
£205,580 to £264,650 
Moderate Brain Damage – where there is some degree of dependence on care. Higher awards will be for cases where sight, speech and senses are affected severely, lower awards will be for cases where there is some ability to work and the need for care is small 
£36,740 to £205,580 
Less Severe Brain Damage – where there is an ability to return to some normal social activities but some issues remain, such as memory function, poor concentration and mood inhibition 
£14,380 to £40,410 
Minor Brain or Head Injury – where brain damage is minimal or non-existent, symptoms may include headaches and the lowest end of the bracket will reflect injuries lasting only a few weeks 
£2,070 to £11,980 
Epilepsy – where an injury leads to epilepsy and Grand Mal seizures are a regular occurrence 
£95,710 to £140,870 
Epilepsy – where an injury leads to Petit Mal seizures and the degree to which medication successfully controls seizures 
£51,460 to £123,340 
Other epileptic conditions- where attacks are limited in frequency and of short duration 
£9,990 to £24,680 

How is my head injury claim calculated? 

Doubtless at some time you have seen a newspaper story about an award for a severely injured person, perhaps with brain damage or a lost limb, receiving an award of several million pounds. We believe it is important to differentiate between the award for your personal injury itself and the associated losses. 
Your award for your personal injury is also known as an award for “pain, suffering and loss of amenity”, routinely called General Damages. This is an award for the injury itself, the pain it causes and the effects on your life. The highest awards for General Damages tend to reach levels of around £400,000. 
Where overall awards reach into the millions of pounds is the other aspect of damages, known as Special Damages. Special damages is the term for all financial losses claimed in any given case. So, usually, these will include medical expenses, lost earnings, and in more serious injuries, future care costs, adaptation costs and even expenses such as moving home (usually to a property without stairs or with room for specialised equipment) can come in.  
So, when reading the below section, please bear in mind that the figures quoted for these injuries are purely the award for the injury and that each case being different, the total losses will be different too. 

How long have I got to make a head or brain injury compensation claim? 

Subject to the Limitation Act 1980, if you have been injured as a result of somebody else's negligence, you have three years from the date of negligence, or the date you became aware of the negligence, to pursue a claim for personal injury. So, in most cases this will be immediately should it occur in an accident, or if the injury stems from medical negligence or industrial illness, if everything appears ok to start with and then you later find out about an issue later, your three years starts from the day you find out that your injuries or illness are as a result of the negligence of another person. 
Minors, meaning those under 18 years old, have three years from their 18th birthday within which to make a personal injury claim.  
If you are acting on behalf of someone with limited mental capacity, if you are acting as guardian or subject a lasting power of attorney, then time limits may again, differ, and we suggest that you make contact with one of our personal injury specialists so as not to be disappointed, in the event that your claim runs out of time, due to being statute blocked. If you have any questions or queries, then please do not hesitate to contact one of MG Legal’s personal injury experts, here…
