Brain Injury: What you need to know
The effects of a brain injury can be devastating, both for the injured person, and for those around them.
Lives can dramatically change in an instant. From that moment, that person may need care and support that often comes at a huge emotional and financial cost.

Brain injury claims can arise in many different circumstances, but all claims have one thing in common - that someone has been negligent and caused the brain injury to happen.
In a medical situation, it might be that a doctor, nurse or other medical professional has provided negligent care.
Or, the brain might have been damaged in a traumatic accident, such as in a road accident or by a fall, or by being the victim of an assault. If something like this has happened to you or your loved one and has resulted in a brain injury, take a look at the Traumatic Brain Injury section of our site for more information.
In the most tragic of cases, brain injury can lead to death. Whether caused by medical negligence or by an accident, those left behind may be able to make a claim for compensation.
