Understanding Brain Injury Claims
In this guide we will look at what constitutes a brain injury, how much a claim may be worth and what issues will contribute towards the amount of compensation that could be received.
We will also look at what is termed an Acquired Head Injury.
Clarifying different types of brain injuries will assist you in understanding how much a claim could be worth.
What Is Covered With A Brain Injury
A brain injury claim relates to where there has been an injury to the brain following an accident. There are many potential causes for this type of injury, including falls and accidents at work and road traffic accidents.
A brain injury is generally caused by outside force and in such circumstances is referred to as an acquired brain injury. It covers the physical injury itself and also includes complications that can follow.
The brain injury and the implications of an brain injury can be mild to severe and that effects the potential amount for a claim. These complications can take the form of issues such as swelling on the brain or lack of oxygen.
By comparison to an acquired brain injury, there are also brain injuries that a person can be born with.
