Many people assume that head and brain injuries are one and the same but this is incorrect. It is possible to suffer a head injury but without any damage to the brain but a traumatic brain injury will always involve some degree of head trauma.
Most head injuries heal without any long-term effects but a traumatic brain injury is completely different. This can result in a mild or serious mental impairment which then impacts that person’s ability to function on a normal basis.
A head or brain injury is traumatic for the person affected but no less traumatic for his or her family. Often it is the family who has to care for and support the injured person which is stressful on many different levels.
If you or someone you know has suffered a personal injury or traumatic brain injury as a result of an accident, then you (or they) may be entitled to compensation.
A claim for compensation covers not only the cost of your personal injury but also includes the following services:
- Specialist nursing care
- Aids to help with day to day living
- Alterations to your home or even the cost of moving to a house that is designed for disabled living.
- Respite care
