Head and brain injuries are among the most serious injuries anyone can endure, sometimes with lifelong consequences, so it is crucial to access all the help you are entitled to. This includes compensation to cover loss of income and pay for the care you need to get on with your life in the best way possible.

If you or someone you know has injured your head or brain in a motor vehicle accident, at work, or in another accident due to negligence, you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation.

Examples of head and brain injuries include:

  • Concussion;
  • Cuts to the face or head;
  • Fractured skull;
  • Contusion or bruising on the brain;
  • Haemorrhage or bleeding in the brain;
  • Blood clots;
  • Traumatic brain injury.

Symptoms of a brain injury can be wide-ranging, debilitating and sometimes permanently life-altering, and include:

  • Memory problems;
  • Concentration problems;
  • Irritability;
  • Fatigue;
  • Headaches;
  • Dizziness;
  • Communication problems;
  • Depression;
  • Difficulties socialising.

No matter how your accident occurred, even if you may have been at fault, talk to the team at Lionheart Lawyers to understand your rights and learn of all the claims you may be eligible to make.

Legal advice for Head & Brain Injury Compensation Claims

If your head or brain injury was the result of a motor vehicle accident, then you may be entitled to make a claim. In NSW, this is processed through the CTP scheme.

Car accident head injuries may be covered for:

  • Medical and treatment expenses;
  • Domestic care and assistance;
  • Income support payments.

You may also be entitled to a lump sum payment for future economic loss for your motor vehicle accident head or brain injury if:

  • You were not at fault for the accident;
  • Your injuries are classified as ‘above threshold’.

Additionally, if your injuries are assessed as greater than 10% whole person impairment you may be entitled to an extra lump sum payment for pain and suffering, also known as non-economic loss.

It is crucial to have your head or brain injury expertly assessed to ensure that no injury is overlooked, as it could make a substantial difference to your claim.

Lionheart Lawyers have more than 50 years of combined experience in injury law, including head and brain injuries, and will ensure you receive a thorough medical assessment and claim everything you are entitled to.

Making a Negligence Claim for Head & Brain Injuries

If your head or brain injury is the result of a fall or accident in a public place caused by negligence, then you may be entitled to make a claim.

Accidents caused by negligence can occur in public places such as:

For example, you may slip, trip or fall in a public space on a spill that was not cleaned up promptly, or on stairs that were in disrepair without adequate signage.

If you or someone you know sustains a serious head or brain injury as a result of negligence, you may be entitled to pursue a claim against the owner or occupier of the premises.

It costs nothing to contact the head and brain injury experts at Lionheart Lawyers for an initial assessment. We will listen to you to find out how your head accident occurred and how it has affected your life, and we will tailor our legal advice to your personal circumstances.

If you work with us, we will:

  • Gather evidence to support your claim, including:
    • Medical reports assessing your head or brain injury;
    • Clinical records and information about treatment received or required;
    • Evidence of negligence on the part of the premises where your head accident occurred. This may include photographs of the accident scene, witness statements and accident reports;
    • Financial information to show your income before and after the accident and other economic evidence;
    • Details of your domestic care needs before and after the accident;
    • Other documentation.
  • Compile the necessary information for your head or brain injury claim;
  • Submit your claim to the relevant insurer.

If the insurer does not offer an acceptable settlement for your head injury claim, we will advise you of next steps, which may include court proceedings. Our highly experienced lawyers are ready to fight for you in court to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.

Claiming for Head & Brain Injuries Sustained at Work

If your head or brain injury was the result of an accident at work, then you may be entitled to workers compensation.

As with any other workers compensation claim, time limits apply, so it is important to act promptly. We know it can be stressful to think about filling out forms and dealing with insurers when you are already dealing with your head or brain injury.

That is just one reason why you should contact the expert team at Lionheart Lawyers. We can relieve you of the burden of submitting a claim by doing all the work on your behalf.

The other important benefit of using a lawyer for your workers compensation claim is that we do this every day. Our solicitors are experts in personal injury law and know exactly how to maximise your entitlements.

When you engage a lawyer early on, you minimise your risk of your head or brain injury claim being denied, or partly denied. We will ensure your head injuries are thoroughly and accurately assessed, so nothing is missed. We will also identify all the claims you are entitled to make, which may be more than you would otherwise be offered by the insurer.

For example, if your workplace head or brain injury is permanent, you may be entitled to a lump sum payout. Additionally, if your head injury was caused by your employer’s negligence, you may be entitled to an additional lump sum payment known as work injury damages.

Our no win, no fee policy means we will do everything we can to ensure your claim is successful, and you will not be out of pocket for your head or brain injury claim.
