How Much Compensation For Epilepsy

Epilepsy is a condition that people can be born with or something that results from an injury.

You may have epilepsy as a result of receiving a blow to the head; a brain injury caused by medical malpractice; a stroke or a brain tumour.

Whatever the reason, if the cause of your condition was not your fault then it is reasonable to consider how much compensation for epilepsy. If third-party blame can be proven then there is a strong possibility you will get the compensation you deserve.

Amounts of compensation for epilepsy

There exists a sliding scale of settlement fee amounts relating to the severity of your epilepsy. Factors affecting how much compensation for epilepsy include whether or not epileptic attacks can be controlled by medication; how this medication has affected your quality of life and how long it is required.

If there is evidence of behavioural problems and a significant impact on social life then these elements will also influence how much compensation for epilepsy.

Level of epilepsy

Potential compensation

Established Grand Mal (causes rigidity of muscles, unconsciousness, convulsions) £81,310 – £119,650
Established Petit Mal (usually 15 seconds in length, fluttering eyelids, lip-smacking, ‘staring into space’) £43,710 – £104,660
Other Epileptic conditions which cause the sufferer to experience one or two smaller episodes of an epileptic seizure but there is no reason to believe there will be any more. £8,480 – £20,950

Epilepsy compensation may also form part of other claims such as those concerned with brain or head injuries.
