What is a medical negligence brain injury claim? 

If you, or a loved one, has suffered from a brain injury as a result of medical negligence whilst under the care of a medical professional, then you could make a medical negligence claim for financial compensation.  
Some of the most common types of brain injury claims are made for: 
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 - a head injury where there is a break in the skull bone 
Diffuse axonal injury- where the brain is damaged without bleeding 
This list is not comprehensive, and our specialist solicictors can accept your compensation claim for any type of brain injury. Simply get in touch today, here, for a no-obligation discussion of how our team can help you with your brain injury claim.

What type of medical negligence can cause a brain injury, leading to a brain injury claim? 

The most common types of brain injury arising from medical negligence occur as a result of the following scenarios: 
Misdiagnosis of a stroke, haematoma or other such events, leading to a delay in treatment which in turn cause permanent or increased brain injury. 
Birthing (obstetrics) errors, which can lead your baby to suffer brain damage from lack of oxygen. Please see our dedicated birthing injury page for more information;  
Infection or viral misdiagnosis, such as meningitis or herpes simplex (cold sore virus) can leave you with brain damage if not diagnosed and properly treated; 
Surgical errors, whether by way of a physical error by the surgeon or an anaesthetic error, both can make an already serious condition significantly worse; 
Misdiagnosis of brain tumours, leading to worsening of the cancer and making subsequent treatment more invasive, longer lasting or in some cases, impossible to treat. For more information, please see our cancer misdiagnosis page. 
If you, or a loved one, have sustained any type of brain injury due to the medical negligence of either an NHS or Private medical professional, then MG Legal’s specialist medical negligence solicitors are here to help with your claim. Our medical negligence experts have dealt with a range of brain injury claims, ranging from clients who have suffered life-changing injuries following major incidents, to clients that have suffered short term, minor brain injuries, following bumps and bangs to the head. 

How much is my brain injury claim worth? 

At MG Legal our first port of call in valuing medical negligence brain injury claims the Judicial College's Guidelines. These offer up-to-date guidance on the valuation of compensation for specific injuries alone. While this is helpful, what they do not take into account is the extra compensation, known as special damages, that you will be awarded for the likes of lost earnings, ongoing treatment and medication costs, and around the clock care and assistance. All these factors would be calculated on a case by case basis, and your medical negligence solicitor at MG Legal, will work closely with you during the claims process to ensure that you are awarded every single penny of the compensaiton you deserve.  
See below MG Legal's table using the injury compensation amounts given by the Judicial College.

What if I am losing money or have unexpected costs because of my injury? 

Often, medical negligence brain injuries can mean you are unable to work due to your own injuries or needing to care for your injured child. In some cases, you may be entirely off your feet or your child may need 24 hour care.  
If you find yourself in this situation, your specialist personal injury solicitor will look to obtain an “interim payment” from the fault party. Whilst this is not always possible, in cases where liability (negligence) is not an issue, the fault party will usually be willing to make an interim payment. This is a payment made before settlement of your claim is agreed in full, and is generally deducted from whatever final settlement is agreed. 

How long have I got to make a medical negligence brain injury claim for compensation? 

Subject to the Limitation Act 1980, you have three years from the date of negligence, or the date you knew about the negligence, to pursue a claim for compensation. In most cases, if the effects are seen straight away, then the 3 years within which to make a claim, wil start immediately, if the brain injury stems from medical negligence. 
There are exceptions, for those under 18 years old at time of the injury, in that minors have three years from their 18th birthday within which to make a medical negligence brain injury claim. Time limits may differ if you are acting on behalf of someone with limited mental capacity due to their brain injury. In severe cases, where the child, or patient if they are an adult, will never have capacity, the Limitation Act will never truly apply.
