Will I have to pay to claim for my head injury?
At Claims Direct, we want justice for all. That's why 98% of our cases are No Win No Fee compensation claims. So you won't ever have to pay Claims Direct any money up front. We only get a fee when we win you the compensation you deserve. This is a safe and easy way of doing things for many of our customers, as it takes the risk out of pursuing your claim.
Will I have to have a medical for my head injury claim?
If you or a family member has suffered a very serious head injury, hospital records may be all we need. In less severe cases, where medical records aren't detailed enough, we may get you to see a head injury specialist at our expense. This provides the evidence we need to help you get the financial compensation you deserve.
Will I have to go to court for a head injury claim?
In the most serious head injury cases, where victims will never fully recover, a court hearing is possible. Most of the time though, our expert lawyers will simply deal with the ‘at fault' party's insurance company directly. This means you won't have to get involved, or attend court. You can also choose to deal with us by phone and post, or to visit one of our offices near you if you prefer.
What sort of head injuries can I claim for?
Head injuries often happen in the workplace, though they can also be caused by slips, trips and falls in public places, as well as by car accidents. It's important to understand that even minor head injuries can have lasting effects, including:
- Regular headaches
- Sight problems
- Dizzy spells
- Difficulty concentrating
More serious head injuries can also lead to brain damage, disability and even death. That's why it's important to get every head injury checked out by a doctor, and to make a compensation claim where someone else was at fault for a head injury, whether it is you or a family member.
What can I claim for?
If you or a family member has suffered a head injury that was someone else's fault, you might be entitled to compensation for things like:
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of earnings
- Medical expenses
- Loss of earnings for family members
Even if you don't think your head injury is very serious, it is essential to seek medical advice to make sure. You should also consider talking to an expert lawyer if you think someone else was at fault for your head injury.
Who's to blame for my head injury?
There are hundreds of ways that someone can get a head injury, and many of these are caused by other people being at fault, such as:
- Car accidents: where your head is bruised, cut or fractured
- Slips, trips and falls: where your head has hit the ground very hard
- Accidents at work: due to falling objects or poor safety equipment
