If you injure your head in an accident that was not your fault, head injury law determines who is liable for your injuries and how much head injury compensation you should receive. Head injuries can be sustained through the violent impact of a road traffic accident or due to the negligence of a medical practitioner. Needless to say, when you have sustained an injury to your head, the consequences can be severe and long lasting.
This is why, when making a claim for head injury compensation, it is always in your best interests to use the services of an experienced solicitor who is up to date with head injury law. The solicitor will be able to advise you how to best complete your application form to the Injuries Board Ireland for personal head injury compensation, or make a head injury claim through the courts in the event of medical negligence.
Making a Claim for Head Injury Compensation
One of the most important factors to consider when making a claim for head injury compensation is the consequences of your injury. Whereas the Injuries Board Ireland may make reference to the Book of Quantum to determine their assessment of your head injury claim, there are many after effects of a head injury which should also be integrated into a head injury compensation claim.
These would include compensation for the emotional trauma you may have suffered, any ongoing care expenses or, if unable to work due to your head injuries, recompense for your loss of earnings. A solicitor familiar with head injury law will be able to advise you which “special damages” you are entitled to claim and how to go about claiming them.
