Support in the event of a brain injury
When somebody suffers a brain injury in an accident which is not their fault, they could be eligible to make a brain injury compensation claim.
This claim will help the injured person and their family to secure much needed funding, to pay for medical help, rehabilitation, home adaptations and other necessary support services.
Of course, financial support is just one of the support structures required, and available, in the wake of a brain injury. The major forms of brain injury support include:
