Head and Spinal Injury Claims

Injuries to your head or spine can be life changing. You may be living with major changes to your lifestyle with the need for long-term rehabilitation support and care. You might also be supporting a loved one who can no longer live independently due to their injuries. Claiming compensation can make a real difference to your situation and quality of life.

A head or spinal injury claim can often result in very substantial compensation. This can replace lost income, pay for the very best treatment and care, and go some way toward making amends for what you and your loved ones have gone through.

Wondering if you might be owed head or spinal injury compensation? Get in touch, and we will be able to tell you whether you are likely owed compensation and how much. You can then decide what you want to do next with no pressure from us.

Key facts about head and spinal injury claims

How to claim spinal injury and head injury compensation

There are various stages to the claims process. The key steps are as follows:

  1. Free consultation with our teamWe will listen to your experience, including how the head or spinal injury occurred, as well as how it’s impacting you and your loved ones. We can then advise on whether we can help you get compensation and how much this might be.
  2. Building your caseWe will collect all the necessary evidence to support your claim, including an independent medical evaluation and any proof of negligence.
  3. Valuing your claimWe will look at the ways in which your injuries have affected your or your loved one’s life to make sure the damages we seek fully reflect the impact on you.
  4. Seeking a settlementIn most cases, we will be able to negotiate a settlement. This can get maximum compensation as quickly as possible and with minimal stress.
  5. Court proceedingsIn the unlikely event that a settlement cannot be negotiated, it may be necessary to pursue a claim in court. If this happens, we will make sure your case is well prepared and that you have the strongest possible representation.

Head and spinal injury claim time limits

Normally, you have 3 years to bring a claim for any kind of personal injury. However, there is no time limit if you are claiming on behalf of someone who has not had the mental capacity to make a claim since the accident (e.g. because of a serious brain injury).

Whatever the situation, we recommend speaking to a claims expert as soon as possible to make sure you don’t miss the chance to get compensation.

How long does a head, brain or spinal injury claim take?

The time to get compensation will depend entirely on the situation. Generally, if a settlement can be negotiated, this will be much faster than court proceedings.

Can you claim compensation for someone else?

You may be able to make a claim on behalf of a loved one if they do not have the ability to make a claim themselves, e.g. because they have suffered a serious brain injury. You will normally need to be their next of kin to do so.
