Head Injury Compensation Claims

Head injuries can be the result of a variety of different types of accident, including car accidents or sporting injuries, and can vary a great deal in severity.  All head injuries should be assessed by a medical professional to establish whether or not there is significant damage, or whether there is a likelihood of long-term consequences.

If you, or someone you are close to, has suffered a head injury, you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation.  Negative outcomes as a result of head injury may not be immediately obvious but any symptoms of suspected concussion should be immediately investigated by a doctor.
