Many people assume that these 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 brain injury will always involve some degree of head trauma.
Most head injuries heal without any long-term effects but a brain injury is completely different. This can result in mild or serious mental impairment which then impacts upon 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 and support the injured person which is stressful on many different levels.
If you or someone you know has suffered a head or 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 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 which is designed for disabled living.
- Respite care
