Head Injury Compensation & Claims


Injuries to the head can vary greatly in severity from bruising and minor cuts to concussion, a fractured skull or brain damage. Even a fairly minor head injury can cause long lasting symptoms such as headaches, vision problems or dizziness. More serious head injuries can cause permanent disability and sometimes even death.

Experienced Head Injury Compensation Solicitors

Spencers Solicitors are a Headway accredited law firm and are an approved head injury claim specialist; therefore you can be confident that your claim is being dealt with by quality and experienced legal professionals.

In serious head injury claims we can also organise a home visit as it may be most convenient and suitable setting to assess detail of the accident and injury.

We'll work with medical professionals to meticulously define the status of your head trauma and what the long term prognosis will be. Arranging a 'rehabilitation and immediate needs assessment' will be one of the first things we do. From here we will establish any immediate and ongoing medical needs and create a comprehensive claim that covers the cost of all current and future treatment needs and care.

Claiming Compensation for a Head Injury

We don't see head injury compensation as the be all and end all:

  • Our head injury solicitors become part of the recovery team.
  • We keep a close eye on progress and appoint an expert head injury team that will develop a unique understanding of the impact on the injured person.
  • We utilise our links with numerous care and rehabilitation organisations to aid recovery.
  • This level of involvement and care is the reason major charities trust us with their head injury cases.
  • We deal with the two of the most important aspects of head injury compensation: we seek payment for all past and future financial losses.

Getting back to normal can take a long time, but we are there to help all the way. We'll be pro-active and we'll help reach a legal conclusion as quickly as possible. And, we can handle the claim under a no win no fee arrangement.

What are the causes of Head Trauma?

Whilst head trauma can occur from virtually any kind of accident, our solicitors often find certain activities can carry more risk of a head injury than others. For example:

Head Injury from a Car Accident

Road accidents usually involve a sudden and violent collision. Even if front or side airbags are deployed, the head can still be jarred or strike objects in the vehicle causing damage.

Head Injuries on Construction Sites

Most workplaces have some kind of injury risk, however on building sites this risk can be elevated to life threatening levels with construction work being undertaken at a height and scaffolding use being common place. Hardhats and clear walkways are paramount to maintain employee safety, but if a head accident occurred even these may not provide sufficient protection to the injured person.

Head Injury from Sports

It's expected that in contact sports an injury may be suffered, but teams, sporting venues and official organisers still owe you a duty of care to make sure you are not put at any inappropriate risk.

Head Injury in Children

When a child suffers a head injury it can be a worrying time, as they may not be able to fully express any symptoms of dizziness, headache, nausea or blurred vision. Therefore it is imperative to seek medical attention as soon as possible, as even a minor head injury may require treatment or closer observation for a period of time.
