Brain injuries at work compensation

Brain injuries that are sustained at work can have a devastating impact not just on the individual but on their families and loved ones too. Work related brain injuries are typically caused by slips, trips or falls, falls from a height or being hit by a falling object.

No matter what type of workplace you work in, your employer has a duty to keep you as safe as possible. This includes ensuring employees are wearing the appropriate personal protection wear, such as hard hats and harnesses if needed, and they must ensure that all appropriate safety measures are put in place to minimise risks such as falls and being struck by falling objects.

If your employer has been negligent, then it may be possible to claim compensation for the injuries you have sustained. We will always aim to get the maximum amount of compensation that is appropriate for your situation. Being awarded the right amount of compensation can make all the difference to your quality of life and it can help you and your family move on from what has happened. If needed, we can also ask for an interim payment, so you can access much-needed treatment and help you stay financially afloat. An interim payment will generally come out of your final compensation award.

When it comes to calculating the amount of compensation, we will ask for we take several factors into account which includes the following:

  • The severity of your brain injury
  • What treatment is needed
  • Whether or not rehabilitation is needed (e.g. physio, mental health counselling etc)
  • Loss of earnings
  • Loss of enjoyment
  • Out of pocket expenses
