Have you suffered a serious brain injury?

A traumatic brain injury can have life-changing implications for an individual and their loved ones, seriously affecting how you live your life in any number of ways, from your education or work to your family life and general day to day living.

While physical problems are obviously very difficult to adjust to and can put real strain on your daily life, there are also the cognitive and personality changes to consider. These can also have a real impact on your work, your quality of life and your relationships.

What is acquired brain injury?

Acquired brain injury (ABI) means that damage to the brain has occurred after birth. If the acquired head or brain injury was caused as the result of an accident for which someone else legally at fault or legally liable – we could help you claim the compensation you are entitled to. This could include a road traffic accident, medical negligence, a slip, trip or fall, or an accident at work.

The consequences of ABI can be catastrophic and unfortunately often mean that a major life adjustment is required. Making that adjustment can be a critical factor in rehabilitation and recovery, and at What’s My Claim Worth we will do everything we can to ensure your compensation funds any necessary lifestyle changes as well as any other financial losses incurred.

Typical symptoms of a brain injury

The human brain is extremely vulnerable to impact. The brain surface can be torn and bruised as it collides with the skull, despite the protective bone surrounding the skull. It is also possible for blood vessels and nerves to be damaged.

These injuries are likely to cause bleeding, swelling or a buildup of fluid in the head, which in turn puts pressure on the brain and in certain circumstances can cause severe brain injury.

Those who have suffered a brain injury may experience the following:

  • Behavioural changes or difficulties
  • Memory problems
  • Poor concentration
  • Problems with planning and organising
  • Difficulties solving problems
  • Fatigue
  • Anger management issues
  • A lack of motivation
