I was a passenger in a car involved in a road traffic accident and suffered serious injuries to my right shoulder, my elbow and scarring to my forehead. I was unable to work for a long time. Jefferies Solicitors Ltd dealt with my case from the outset. I never expected that I would receive £21,191.00 of compensation for my injuries and other losses I had as a result of the accident. I am delighted with the outcome of my claim and would definitely recommend Jefferies Solicitors Ltd to anyone who wants to make an accident claim

If you would like to know how much compensation may be available for minor head injuries then you have probably suffered from some of the symptoms typical of this injury through the fault of a third party. See below some of the symptoms and related amounts typical of compensation claims which have been made previously.
All cases are judged on their own specific circumstances but there are some guidelines which may have you have a clearer idea of how much compensation for head injuries.
Head injuries can cause brain injury but in cases of minor head injuries, this is usually less likely.
Less severe brain damage usually sees claimants receiving £11,000 to £30,750 in compensation. The severity of the condition is characterised by the ability to maintain a lifestyle enjoyed prior to the injury, such as the continuation of leisure activities. Concentration and memory may have been affected but they do not preside over every aspect of your daily life in these cases.
There is the chance of epilepsy in some cases of less severe brain damage. The factors considered in this bracket can be such things as how long the injury is likely to impact on an individual’s life, the likelihood of any permanent disability and if there is a personality change or depression is present.
Compensation claims classified as minor brain or head injuries are those where there has been minimal brain damage. The following features of a minor case are considered: how severe the injury is; if there is any presence of headaches and how severe they are; what the seriousness of any symptoms are; how long symptoms are likely to carry on for. Settlement figures in these cases begin at £1,575 and go up to £9,100 depending on the elements mentioned.
