Brain Injury Compensation Levels
Very severe brain damage: £185,000 — £265,000
Such injuries would leave the person profoundly handicapped with need of permanent full time care.
Moderately severe brain damage: £144,000 — £185,000
The injured person here would rely greatly on care from others and would have some insight into their injury/condition, but would be seriously disabled. The courts consider a range of factors in determining the appropriate reward, including the life expectancy of the injured party.
Moderate brain injury
There are three sub-categories here:
£98,500 — £144,000: The injured party here would suffer moderate/severe reduction in intellect, a likely change in their personality or general mood, detrimental impact on the senses and there would be very little prospect of the person being able to work.
£59,500 — £98,500: There will be a modest reduction in intellect for the sufferer here with an associated impact on ability to work. Epilepsy may also be an issue.
£28,250 – £59,500: No need for full-time care, modest reduction in intellect and impact on mood with small risk of suffering epilepsy.
Minor brain injuries
The person here will have made a good recovery with limited consequences.
Minor head injury: £1,450 — £8,400
No or little brain injury, but persons suffers perhaps from diminished concentration and headaches.
If epilepsy is a factor, or is a direct result of the injury, then the court can make an additional or a stand-alone award.
Epilepsy grand mal: £66,000 — £98,500
Epilepsy petit mal: £36,000 — £86,000
The court will consider how often attacks occur and if medication can regulate the condition well or not.
