Making a head injury claim
If you have suffered a head injury in an accident that was not caused by yourself then it should be possible to claim compensation. If it occurred in a road traffic accident or accident at work then the claim would be made against the other parties/employers insurance company. If it resulted from a criminal attack then compensation would be sought from the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority.
In most cases, as well as being able to claim damages (the legal term given to the money given purely as compensation for suffering injury), it is possible to claim back expenses too. This may be the cost of medical treatment, or earnings lost from not being able to work, or any other expense that resulted from the injury.
