Head Injury Compensation Calculator

Calculating the compensation for head and brain injuries ranges a great deal. This is due to the fact that head and brain injuries vary a great deal in severity, from a minor concussion with symptoms that last only a few hours, to a serious brain injury with life-altering effects. At Jefferies, we deal with head injury claims of all kinds, helping individuals and their loved ones access compensation to help them deal with their injury and return to as normal a life as possible.

Because the range of head injuries is so extensive, the amount of compensation that is awarded can also vary extensively. While a minor head injury claim is worth between £1,000 and £10,000, in cases of severe brain injury, individuals can receive much more. For example, we recently helped a client secure over £10 million in compensation following a brain injury.

Find out the amount of compensation you might be entitled to with our head injury compensation calculator below.


A compensation claim may include the following:

Closed and open head injuries

Head injuries usually fall into one of two categories: closed and open.

Closed head injuries are the most common kind of head injury. With a closed head injury, the bones of the skull are not affected and there is no visible wound. However, this can lead to concussion or cause bleeding to the brain.

An open head injury occurs when the skull is fractured and brain tissue is damaged. Open head injuries are often the result of a blow to the head.


Causes of head injury

Head injuries are caused by a number of different accidents, however, most commonly they are a result of:

No matter what kind of accident caused you to sustain your head injury, if the accident was caused by the actions of someone else and took place within the last three years, you could be entitled to make a claim.


The types of claims that we deal with include:



The value of your claim will be dependent on a number of things including the severity of your head injury, its lasting effects and your expected recovery time. Each of these will be determined using reports prepared by a medical expert.

All cases are judged on their own specific circumstances but the information below will give you an indication of the level of compensation you may receive for your injury alone. You may also be able to claim for any expenses you’ve sustained as a result of the accident, such as medical costs or the cost of adapting your home, if necessary. Financial loss, including loss of earnings, will also be considered.
