What is a Brain Injury claim?

Brain injuries, however suffered, can have significant and life changing consequences; this page focuses upon brain injury due to medical negligence, whether suffered prior to or during birth or at any time following birth (acquired brain injury). If you have suffered a brain injury due to an accident, such as a road traffic accident or accident at work, please see here.

If you suffer a brain injury, the symptoms will depend on the nature and extent of the brain injury, including the affected part of the brain. The most severe brain have a catastrophic impact on the injured person, as well as their wider family; they can cause issues with movement, breathing, swallowing, speech and memory, as well as problems with executive function, namely cognitive, behavioural or emotional problems.

In such circumstances, round the clock care is likely to be required. Brain injuries of a lesser severity can still have significant consequences, requiring substantial care, support and rehabilitation and can impact the person’s ability to work and carry out every day activities.

Not all brain injuries will be due to negligence but a proportion of those with a brain injury will have suffered avoidable harm due to failings in the medical care received. In such circumstances, you may be able to bring a claim for compensation.

    In what instances may a brain injury occur?

    A negligent brain injury may occur if there is:

    • Injury sustained at birth
    • Delay in diagnosis and/or mismanagement of a subarachnoid haemorrhage (SAH)
    • Delay in diagnosis and/or mismanagement of meningitis or other infection
    • Delay in diagnosis and/or mismanagement of stroke
    • Error during brain surgery
    • Medication errors
    • Anoxia
    • Anaphylaxis

    Types of brain injury claims

    A claim can be brought by the injured person in respect of their brain injury; it is however often the case that, due to the extent of the injuries suffered, the person does not have the mental capacity to pursue the claim. In such circumstances, a loved one, known as a Litigation Friend, can act on behalf of the injured person.

    Sadly, brain injuries can result in death and in such circumstances, a claim can be pursued by the loved ones of the Deceased, both on behalf of the estate of the Deceased and on behalf of those dependent upon them.
