Brain & Head Injury Claims

If you, or a member of your family, have suffered a serious brain or head injury, you may be wondering if you are eligible to make a compensation claim against the party responsible for causing the injury. Below you will find some general guidance relating to head & brain injury claims.

Brain injury claims

Bringing a Brain or Head Injury Compensation Claim

In the case of head and brain injury, quite apart from considerations arising from the seriousness of the injuries themselves, you can also have the situation arising where, in all likelihood, the injury may have rendered the injured person incapable of making decisions for themselves and of actually bringing the case in their own right. In that case, a person (referred to as a ‘next friend’) would have to be appointed to represent the interests of the injured party and bring any claim that may be required on their behalf. The question of whether the injured person would need to be made a ward of court before issuing proceedings would have to be looked at and, in most cases, a family member would be appointed to prosecute the case on behalf of the injured person.

Compensation Claim Guidelines

You may find Section 3 of the Judicial Council’s Personal Injuries guidelines useful for determining the maximum compensation payouts for brain and head injury claims.
