Compensation for Brain Injury Caused by a Road Traffic Accident

Posted on

Case Studies – A road traffic accident can have devastating consequences for the victims and their families, especially if it results in a serious brain injury. A brain injury can affect a person’s physical, cognitive, emotional, and social functioning, and require extensive medical treatment, rehabilitation, and support. In some cases, a brain injury can lead to permanent disability or death.

If you or a loved one has suffered a brain injury caused by a road traffic accident that was not your fault, you may be entitled to claim compensation from the responsible party. Compensation can help you cover the costs of your medical expenses, lost income, care needs, and other damages. It can also help you cope with the pain and suffering, and the impact on your quality of life.

They will work closely with you to understand the details of your case, and the extent of your injuries and losses. They will gather all the necessary evidence to prove the liability of the other party, and the causation and quantum of your damages. They will also consult with medical experts, rehabilitation specialists, and other professionals to assess your current and future needs, and to calculate the amount of compensation that you deserve.

They will negotiate with the other party or their insurance company to try to reach a fair and reasonable settlement that reflects your best interests.

They have helped many clients who have suffered brain injuries caused by road traffic accidents, and they have achieved successful outcomes for them. Here are some examples of our case studies:

  • They secured a £1.5 million settlement for a client who suffered a severe brain injury when he was hit by a car while crossing the road. The accident left him with cognitive impairments, memory problems, personality changes, and behavioural issues. He also required ongoing care and support, and was unable to return to his previous occupation. They obtained an admission of liability from the driver’s insurers, and negotiated a lump sum payment that covered his past and future losses, as well as his care and rehabilitation costs.
  • They obtained a £1.2 million settlement for a client who suffered a moderate brain injury when he was involved in a head-on collision with another car. The accident caused him to suffer from headaches, fatigue, concentration difficulties, mood swings, and depression. He also had to undergo several surgeries, and was unable to resume his career as a teacher. They established that the other driver was at fault for the accident, and secured a compensation package that included damages for his pain and suffering, loss of earnings, medical expenses, and care needs.
  • They achieved a £750,000 settlement for a client who suffered a mild brain injury when he was knocked off his motorcycle by a car. The accident caused him to suffer from post-concussion syndrome, which affected his cognitive abilities, emotional stability, and social skills. He also developed post-traumatic stress disorder, and was unable to continue his work as a mechanic. They proved that the car driver was negligent, and obtained a settlement that compensated him for his injuries, losses, and expenses.
