Common causes of brain injury:

How much can I claim?

How much you can claim will depend very much on the impact and severity of the brain injury received. You may need to be assessed by a medical team for us to better understand your limitations caused by your brain injury.

Compensation will take into account future physical and psychological support required, specialist equipment and adaptions to your home that are needed. Also any future pain and suffering that you may experience will be taken into account alongside loss of work and income related to your injury.

Compensation amounts vary from £2,000 – £11,000 for minor head injury to £330,000 for severe brain damage.

What happens if the victim’s brain injury is so severe they cannot start a case for compensation themselves?

In this scenario a claim must be undertaken by a “litigation friend”: this is usually a close family friend, family member, spouse who acts in the best interest of the victim.

The NHS made a near record payout to the parents of a girl left brain damaged after a jaundice treatment went terribly wrong.

The girl, now 9 years old, was awarded £19 million (the top end for brain injury claims) after being born with severe jaundice and treatment being delayed by Kings College Hospital. The NHS lawyers accepted that there had been shortcomings in her care and agreed to settle the claim.

The girl’s lawyers claimed that, had medics carried out a complete blood exchange, she may very well have escaped the permanent injury she has been left with.

Alexander Hutton QC for the trust said “This case did highlight shortcomings in the care that was provided.
“We are extremely sorry for those shortcomings and I am told that the trust has worked hard to ensure that this will not happen again in the future.”

In a recent judgement handed down by the UK Supreme Court, Croydon Health Services NHS Trust found itself blamed for incorrect information about waiting times given to an assault victim by a non-clinically trained hospital receptionist. Consequently, the patient, Michael Darnley, suffered severe and lasting consequences.
