Compensation for a Head Injury

Head Injuries can be caused by any type of accident, be it following a road traffic accident, an accident at work or a trip or a slip.

Suffering a head injury is understandably extremely concerning for the victim and their family. It is important to investigate any potential brain injury that may have been caused.

Given the long term implications of any head injury, you will need to make sure that you have the right people on your side to help you claim the compensation to which you are entitled.

Our solicitors are experts in the field of claiming compensation for clients following a head injury. At Poole Alcock Solicitors, we ensure that the severity of any head injury is assessed by our independent medical experts before preparing a report on the injury, its impact on your life and how long the injury is likely to go for if not permanent.

If the injury is serious, it may be appropriate for us to discuss with immediate family the potential for a legal guardian or ‘litigation friend’ to take over conduct of the claim on your behalf. We can also discuss whether a power of attorney or deputy should be appointed to take control of any finances and assets.

With claims of this nature, where it is difficult or impossible for you to attend our offices, we will visit you at home or hospital to make this process as convenient as possible.

Is There a Time Limit?

Court proceedings must normally be commenced within 3 years of the date of your accident.

If court proceedings are not commenced within the 3 year period then your claim will be out of time. Although a court does have the discretion to allow court proceedings to be commenced and to continue after the 3 year period has expired this must not, and cannot, be relied on.

The 3 year period is different if, for example, the person injured was under 18 years of age at the time of their injury. In this case the 3 year period does not commence until their 18th birthday.

I should like to thank you for your excellent service throughout the progress of my claim; you have been very personable and professional. More specifically, you very quickly got to grips with the detail of my accident, which allowed you to form a very accurate opinion of the eventual outcome. I appreciated not only your advice, but also your willingness to be guided by my objectives. The fact that the defendant made an offer so quickly, and at a level you had intimated to be a reasonable expectation at the outset, is testament to your expertise. Finally, your pleasant manner made the whole process painless and even enjoyable!
