Damage to any part of the head will have a different effect on the quality of life of a sufferer. For example, if you have a detached retina as a result of a blow to the head then this will mean a different level of compensation than if you have endured stitches because of a blow to the head. If the brain has been affected then you are likely to receive much more because the negative influence on your life is usually greater.

Please note that the amounts detailed below should be taken for guidance only.

Eye injury compensation amounts vary from £1,450 – £25,750 but if you experience a complete loss of sight in one eye then figures usually start from £32,250. Often psychological conditions can occur following a head injury and claimants have received up to approximately £66,000. Damage to teeth, cheekbones, the jaw, hair and facial scarring see claimants awarded from £1,000 to £64,000. Brain damage is the most severe form of head injury and figures vary greatly.

Brain injuries range from minor to severe. Below is an approximation of what you will receive in each case.

      Severe brain injuries – £185,000 – £265,000.
      Moderate to severe brain injuries – £144,000 – £185,000.
      Moderate brain injuries – £28,250 – £144,000
      Minor brain injuries – £10,000 – £28,250.
      Minor head injuries – £1,450 – £8,400

Factors considered in a head injury compensation claim

If a person is unable to continue work then financial losses will be awarded. Special damages may also be granted if a victim has suffered a brain injury, taking into account any particular adaptations to a home, specialist care or equipment needed as a direct result of the injury.

Under normal circumstances the following aspects are considered: –

  • What the life expectancy of the injured party is
  • The level of dependency on others
  • The presence of epilepsy and the likelihood of it developing in the future
  • The extent of physical limitations
  • The level of communication possible
