If your brain injury was the result of a malicious act, accident or malpractice you may be able to pursue a compensation claim. As long as someone else was at least partially responsible for your injury, you can make a claim.
It is important to explore your right to compensation as soon as possible after injury as there are a number of time limits which apply. If you have been the victim of negligence as an adult, for example, you must begin legal action within three years of the incident which caused your injury. Victims of criminal assault must begin legal action within two years.
There are a number of exceptions to these rules. Cases involving children, those with limited mental capacity and accidents abroad are all subject to different time limits.
If you have sustained a brain injury, we always advise seeking specialist legal advice to see if you are eligible to make a claim.
