Why victims should claim compensation for their brain damage injury

Posted By admin - 26th March 2012

Figures show that there are over 125,000 people suffering with brain damage in the UK.

A brain injury will often have devastating consequences for the individual affected, their relatives and friends; it can lead to a complete change in lifestyle, place a strain on relationships and create financial difficulties. Such an injury is all the more difficult to adjust to if you believe that it has been caused by negligence on the part of a medical professional. If you or someone you know has been affected by a brain injury that you believe was caused bymedical negligence, then you may be able to claim compensation.

To successfully pursue a claim for medical negligence, it is necessary to prove three things. Put simply, you must show:

1)    That you have suffered an injury (in this case, brain damage);
2)    That there has been a ‘breach of duty’ on the part of the medical professional;
3)    That this breach of duty caused the brain damage
