Brain injuries have a wide scope and an injury to the brain can cause a temporary condition or at the other end of the spectrum, leave life changing injuries. Whichever type of brain injury you or a family member may have suffered from, the consequences will be far reaching.
We do understand how worried you are about the future and how angry and upset you are too. We can help you to decide if you would like to make a claim for compensation.
How does brain injury happen?
There are a number of ways in which a brain injury can occur whilst you are in hospital. They are:
- Brain injury happening whilst having surgery
- Lack of oxygen to the brain at birth
- A brain condition that was not diagnosed or diagnosis was delayed

It is important to understand that there will only be a possibility of success in a claim for compensation if the care given to you or your family member was negligent and below standard. We will be able to help you understand your legal position and be able to clearly advise you on what your options are now.
