As the brain is the engine room for most of the body’s vital functions, even a minor injury can have devastating, long-lasting consequences, and lead to a considerable compensation payout.
From limited movement or psychological problems, all the way through to paralysis and incapacity, victims can spend the rest of their lives overcoming their injuries, attempting to rebuild their lives. This, however, often entails lifelong financial implications, including costs for ongoing medical care and loss of future earnings As a result, many, rightly, turn to seeking compensation for their injuries.

- Subdural Haematoma
- Deprivation of oxygen – e.g. hypoxic brain injuries that can occur at birth when a baby is deprived of oxygen, resulting in brain injury
- Infection e.g. Infections can passes from mother to baby during labour and is not treated, for example the group B streptococcus virus, the baby could develop meningitis which can cause brain injury
