Head Injury Compensation Claims in Bolton
Head injuries and associated brain injuries are clearly some of the most serious injuries that a person can sustain. The impact on a person’s life can be dramatic and the rest of their life will be fundamentally affected. Mobility, mood and physical capabilities can all be impacted upon. Clearly there is a range of head injuries with some such injuries being less severe and having less of an impact on the sufferer’s life.
Courts have awarded damages which allow us to provide a general guide as to the range of compensation a head or brain injury in itself is likely to achieve. Each claim depends on the circumstances of the person involved and there are likely to be other aspects to a claim which do not feature in these figures eg loss of earning potential.
