Injuries to the head can vary greatly in severity from bruising and minor cuts to concussion, a fractured skull or brain damage.
Even a fairly minor head injury can cause long lasting symptoms such as headaches, vision problems or dizziness. More serious head injuries can cause permanent disability and sometimes even death.

We are available to provide specialist legal advice, support and guidance throughout your head injury claim, ensuring you receive the maximum amount of compensation for your injury.
Spencers Solicitors are a Headway accredited law firm and are an approved head injury claim specialist; therefore you can be confident that your claim is being dealt with by quality and experienced legal professionals.
In serious head injury claims we can also organise a home visit as it may be most convenient and suitable setting to assess detail of the accident and injury.
We'll work with medical professionals to meticulously define the status of your head trauma and what the long term prognosis will be. Arranging a 'rehabilitation and immediate needs assessment' will be one of the first things we do. From here we will establish any immediate and ongoing medical needs and create a comprehensive claim that covers the cost of all current and future treatment needs and care.
We don't see head injury compensation as the be all and end all:
Getting back to normal can take a long time, but we are there to help all the way. We'll be pro-active and we'll help reach a legal conclusion as quickly as possible. And, we can handle the claim under a no win no fee arrangement.
Whilst head trauma can occur from virtually any kind of accident, our solicitors often find certain activities can carry more risk of a head injury than others. For example:
Road accidents usually involve a sudden and violent collision. Even if front or side airbags are deployed, the head can still be jarred or strike objects in the vehicle causing damage.
Most workplaces have some kind of injury risk, however on building sites this risk can be elevated to life threatening levels with construction work being undertaken at a height and scaffolding use being common place. Hardhats and clear walkways are paramount to maintain employee safety, but if a head accident occurred even these may not provide sufficient protection to the injured person.
It's expected that in contact sports an injury may be suffered, but teams, sporting venues and official organisers still owe you a duty of care to make sure you are not put at any inappropriate risk. We have found that the identifying concussion in sporting events can be especially inconsistent and can result in adverse injuries to players.
