A person who suffers a head injury will typically come to hospital via the Accident and Emergency department. In most cases they will be given appropriate treatment and advice, but occasionally vital signs of more serious injury are missed resulting in the patient suffering a subdural haematoma (bleed in the head) some time later leading to brain damage.
Our specialist team has extensive experience in dealing with claims for compensation for this type of injury. We are aware of the types of examination which should be performed and the symptoms which should trigger a CT or MRI scan or assessment by a Consultant Neurologist. We also have an understanding of the long-term effects of brain injury and can therefore make sure that the victim has access to all forms of rehabilitation and receives maximum compensation to enable him or her to adjust to their injury and enjoy the best possible quality of life.
Some examples of our successful brain injury claims are:
- £600,000.00 following a missed subdural haematoma in A & E
- £850,000.00 awarded to a man who suffered brain injury after he suffered a haemorrhage due to a tracheostomy being cited too low
- £5.5million awarded for brain injury suffered at birth
