What is a brain injury?
Brain injuries can occur due to trauma, stroke, or other medical conditions. They can result in a range of symptoms, including cognitive impairment, memory loss, and physical disabilities. Treatment may involve rehabilitation, medication, and surgery, depending on the severity of the injury.
What is a brain injury claim?
Brain injury claims are legal cases where a person seeks compensation for damages caused by a traumatic head and brain injury. These injuries can result from accidents, medical malpractice, or other forms of negligence. The compensation sought may cover medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

With more than 30 years’ experience and an exceptional track record of success, our brain injury solicitors are ideally qualified to manage your head injury claim.
Who can make a brain injury claim?
Experiencing a brain or head injury can be devastating. Understanding your rights during such times is crucial. We support clients who have experienced a brain injury from a wide range of situations, including:
- Road traffic accidents: Injuries sustained from car, bike, motorcycle, or other vehicle accidents.
- Workplace incidents: Accidents or mishaps that occurred while on duty or in your place of employment.
- Falls: Injuries from slips, trips, or falls in public places, homes, or other venues.
- Medical negligence: Injuries resulting from medical procedures, misdiagnoses, or treatment mishaps.
- On behalf of minors: If a child under the age of 18 has suffered a brain injury, then a parent or guardian can undertake a head injury compensation claim on their behalf.
- Other scenarios: Any other situation where the brain or head injury occurred due to another party’s negligence or wrongdoing.
It’s essential to consult with our brain injury legal professionals to determine your eligibility and the best way forward.

What are the time limits for making a brain injury claim?
Typically, you have three years from the date of the injury or from when you first became aware of it to pursue a head injury claim. However, there are exceptions, especially for children or those with limited capacity. Always consult with our brain injury solicitors for precise guidance on time limits.
Exceptions to the three-year time limit includes:
- Brain injuries to children: If the injured party is a minor, the three-year limit starts from their 18th birthday, effectively giving them until they turn 21.
- Those without mental capacity: For individuals who can’t manage their own affairs due to limited mental capabilities, there is no time limit, unless they regain their capacity.
- Criminal assaults: Claims for brain injuries due to criminal assaults have different time frames, often two years, but this can vary.
- Brain injuries sustained overseas: If the injury occurred abroad, the time limits might differ based on the country’s specific laws.
How long will your brain injury claim take?
The duration of a brain injury compensation claim varies depending on the severity of the injury, the clarity of liability, and the cooperation of the other party. Some cases can be completed within a few months, others can span years. Rest assured, our brain injury lawyers are committed to resolving your case as swiftly and efficiently as possible.
How much brain injury compensation could you receive?
Compensation amounts for brain and head injury compensation claims differ based on injury severity, financial losses, and future needs.
Can I make a no win, no fee claim after a brain injury?
Yes. Your brain or head injury claim can be funded through various methods, including a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA), commonly known as a “No Win, No Fee” arrangement. With a CFA, you won’t pay any legal fees upfront, and you’ll only be charged any applicable fees if your claim is successful.
Other funding options might include legal expense insurance, trade union funding, or private funding, depending on your individual circumstances. It’s essential to discuss your funding options with your solicitor to determine the best approach tailored to your situation.
